Since you haven’t got much response, just buy a junk Stanley part plane from EB.

Be careful, early and late frogs and frog receivers are different and are not interchangeable.

Type 14 (1929-1930) on the left. Type 19 (1948-1961) on the right. Notice the tabs on the earlier frog.

The plane on the right is an example of the beginning of the end of Stanley planes. Lots of small differences but they all add up to a lessor plane. The tabs on the earlier frog grip the rib and there is little side to side slop and as you can see there is larger bearing surface both top and bottom on the early frog. The Type 19 still works ok but it is not as solid as the Type 14.

Let’s see if I can post closer views:

Type 14:

Type 19:
