I just bought a vintage Stanley Bailey plane off of craigslist. Previous owner said it was circa 1907 but won’t know how to verify. Regardless, the only thing wrong with it other than needing a good base lapping was part of the frog was broken. The plane will still work because enough of the frog is left to keep the blade supported, although now it will be harder to adjust the blade.
The parts I need are the frog , “Y” adjusting lever, and frog mounting screws. Items 6, 7, and 10 on the attached diagram.
I’m also looking for the shoulder assembly for a No. 78 plane I inherited. I might be able to find them by looking around harder but just in case, I’d like to know where I can find parts.
