Topic tags/keywords: hand plane plane parts stanley 5-12 stanley frog question plane

I am looking for a new frog for a Stanley 5-1/2. I had a road trip Kansas this week and stopped at every antique store/flea market along I-70 and added a couple planes to the collection. I was so excited about the fact that I found a type 9 with minimal rust and tote and handle in great shape that I failed to notice that the lateral adjustment lever was missing from the frog. Anybody got one of these lying around? I think it’s a type 9 so it is 2-1/4” wide and not the post 1939 2-3/8”. It also has the smaller brass depth adjuster. I’ve already looked at everything on Ebay right now, I know If I keep watching I’ll probably find something I’m just being impatient. It looks like this.

Any insight would be much appreciated.

Call off the search!! Bob with antique-used-tools.com had what I needed. He even got back to me on a Saturday. More than I wanted to pay, but I got the plane for $10 so I can justify spending some more money…just don’t tell my wife.
