Topic tags/keywords: question plane

I just bought an old No. 6 (type 11) at a garage sale but it was missing the brass cap nut for the front knob. I’m wondering if anyone might have an extra or know where I can find one. The type 11 has the low squatty knob. I don’t know if that makes a difference or not but thought it was worth mentioning. Thanks.

I might have one, I’ll check later this morning and let you know. I’ve been on the hunt for a cap iron for the same one. I paid $10 for the plane, I hate to pay $20 for just the cap-iron.

They’re commonplace on Ebay. Might be more to ship than to buy, though. If Don can’t find one, I might have one myself. I’ll look.

i have one. PM me your address and I’ll mail it. You just need the nut right? Not the bolt (threaded rod piece).

Highland Woodworking in Atlanta has a complete screw kit for the planes.
I just ordered one for my rehab on the #7 jointer.
