Hello, i am a new member here, yesterday i found on a toolstore a rare Peugot bench plane no 4 (plastic or polyester handle). I can’t find informations no where . It looks similar to stanley handyman 12-204! Anyone familiar with this plane? Greetings from Greece!

chpap, somehow I can’t imagine a plastic or polyester handled plane, Peugot or not being rare.
But..there’s always something new under the sun.
The handles apear orriginal to the plane ?
I’ve got an old wood body coffin style smoother by Peugot, I didn’t know they kept making planes .

Peugeot tools has become PSP
They stopped producing hand tools and then started again.
For the time being, as far as wood is concerned, they only do chisels and gouges.

Glen, looks like only the Canadians are up this early… Another welcome from Canada!

Sorry, not able to help with the plane ID.

Stanley Handyman H1204

Stanley Handyman H1203

The h1204 has some handles i made for it, the H1203 has it’s original handles. Both of these might be a bit older than yours. The H1204s were the same size as a Stanley #4, the H1203 was the #3 size. The “plastic” handles MIGHT be Bakelite.

Yes, the handles looks original. 5+mm width blade. Not an “eye catcher” but the hanle is much comfortable than other planes and lighter which is good for soundboard shaving. The seller claimed that the particular plane is really good but it is very difficult to crosscheck this. I am going to buy it. Blade and sole needs preparing of course. Thanks a lot all of you!

Thanks a lot thedude50, i’ll keep this in mind for the next time… I already have a couple of stanley planes but i have the feeling that this “obsolete” Peugot MAYBE worth a try!
