I have composed this web page which is an Informal Study devoted to the Stanley No. 203 Block Plane that was produced from 1912-1961. Please follow the link—I solicit all comments, suggestions and corrections, via My Message Board or via PM on this Forum.

Thank you,

James

The page looks great. Why did you settle on the 203? I normally pass right buy them because they do not have an adjustable mouth. I tend to look for 9 1/2s, 62’s or 65’s.

Thanks Wayne—I just like the look and feel of the 203 and its historical significance to me—the first block plane I used.

Interesting choice of plane to cover. The personal meaning makes it all the better. I like the page and like your reasonings for making it. Good work
