I have a #4 Stanley with some really shoddy looking/stripped out bolts. Is there a good source for them, or is it a matter of looking on eBay for spares or raiding from donor planes?

You can get some of them from Stanley here. I have found that sometimes they work on old tools and sometimes they don’t. It is kind of a crap shoot, but they are not too expensive and worth a shot. Ebay is another source, sometimes you will see parts from a plane that someone has parted out.

I generally just raid other planes.

If all else fails, Highland Woodworking has totes, knobs, and all the needed hardware for plane resto.
