Topic tags/keywords: plane

Here’s hoping that someone out there can help me. I have a small block plane (7 1/8”) manufactured by Sargent for Fulton/Sears. Here is my problem. Several months ago, I broke the plane down in order to clean up quite a bit of rust which was on it when I got it from my dad’s estate. After cleaning it up, I was stopped before re-assembly, by my wife who had a “honey-do” for me. Later when I got back to working on the plane, I realized that I had failed to make any pictures before breaking it down, and I couldn’t remember where everything went. I have attached a picture showing all of the parts. Actually I do know where everything goes except for the notched threaded piece, and thumb-screw bottom right side of the picture. I feel as if I have visited a thousand web-sites trying to get this accomplished, and I’m hoping one of you can help me.
Based on my research, I’m also wondering how old it is because I have been unable to find another one anywhere, so if someone could help with that, I’d certainly appreciate it, my primary concern is getting back together so I can Use it. The blade is great!

Aren’t ya missing some parts? The knob screws into the vertical “block” shaped post (not the round one), and adjusts the iron front to back. Ther should be a cap iron the is set into the square post.
That’s what I think.

Thanks for the response Bill. Actually, I guess I messed something up when I posted the picture. If you double click it, it will open up the entire picture at Photobucket, and then you can see all the parts.
