Topic tags/keywords: question plane help

Picked this up in a junk box, never seen one like it, looking for some info and if anyone has parts available for it..
its 4” long and 1 5/16” wide with what looks like a 1” iron.. has no markings on it any where. is made of stamped steel but would make a great apron plane.. fits really nice in my hand.. So if anyone can help would really appreciate it.. thanks to all in advance..

Nice find Papa, and the best part is it’s a comfortable fit.
You might have to make your own for this gem. Looking forward
to what others have to contribute.

Looks like some sort of hand plane for beveling edges. I had a small one like that years ago.

what you have is a Sargent #2204. I’ve got a couple pictures here. Edit: computer mal-function http://timetestedtools.wordpress.com/2012/08/10/sargent-planes-by-the-numberwith-pictures/

Yours is missing the cap and iron.
To find parts I’d email some of the references in the plane parts section here, http://lumberjocks.com/donwilwol/blog/24092 starting with Bob Kaune here http://antique-used-tools.com/

That should be worth fixing up, Papa.
Nice job on the Sargent listing, Don. I didn’t realize they made so many planes. Looks like the idea source for Veritas.
