Topic tags/keywords: sargent sargent planes hand plane information

After acquiring a few Sargent Block planes I’ve grown a fondness for the little guys. I noticed it was hard to find information on some Sargent planes. There doesn’t seem to be a spot with #’s and pictures together so I started to build one.

If you have pictures of Sargent planes (especially ones I haven’t found pictures for yet) I’d appreciate any help you can provide.

send pictures to timetestedtools at hotmail dot com.

If you like a statement like “courtesy of Joe’s woodworking” and a link to your site, send that information as well.

Sargent Planes by the number–with pictures.

Thanks
dw

Just wondering if Sargent ever produced spoke-shaves, draw knives, or other non-plane tools? What should also we be on the lookout for?
And.. would it be cheating if we found pics of planes on eBay or other sources? And pointed you in that direction? Your site is incredible, looks quite comprehensive!

Does the number correspond to the length of the plane?

Sometime if you know how and when. Like a 422 is 22” bit a 5206 doesn’t seem to mean anything

Fulton, appears to be a 14” Jack plane. lever cap has both the 709, and the 714 cast into it..

Dunlap for sears, by Sargent. A #220 sized low angle block plane. Has a “BL” stamped on the right side of the base.

A Sargent 107 style block plane, with a cambered iron.

Sears Craftsman #3 sized smooth plane, made by Sargent.

Don’t have any with the “Sargent” name on them, but I seem to find a bunch MADE by sargent, for others. Like Fulton, Dunlap, Craftsman….

Ive got a wood bodied Sargent plane 16” long marked Sargent & Co 613 on the toe. Iron marked Sargent & CO (in a half moon) Warrented Cast Steel. Letter “H” stamped on both sides.

Don, I just looked at your page again and realized you had pics of the ones I sent you all ready. I think my #2204 pic would be better if used though :)

Perhaps I should add that I stole that picture off the internet…

If I get back to the store that had a 600 for sale I’ll take my own pics…maybe buy it for scrap aluminum!

Hi bandit , mine doesn’t have the black paint on it…seems to be “chromed” instead.
