Willie asked me to post these pictures.

“Saw this on the local Craig’s list. Not sure what to make of this! I don’t know how to get these pics (3) on L J, hope you can help. Looks like something homemade. Maybe someone at L J can shed a little light on this. Thanks, Willie”

(Sorry, I had the last picture double.)

Willie, personally I think somebody had a special need and butchered up a nice stanley plane.

Here is the 220 without the handel.

Take care, Willie.

I agree, someone must have had a special need.
It do look almost like steampunk.

Other than the top piece looking rather turdish, it might just be the thing to do with the little Stanley planes that only fit the hands of puny under-developed 6 year olds (#1 through #4 in my case). I don’t mean destroy the plane doing it… remove knob and tote and install the new handle between the two contact points.

I would do the same thing if the need arose. I consider this a very good example of adapting to a specific use.
It might be a better ” mouse trap ”?
