Topic tags/keywords: stanley 113 circular compass plane

Hi,

I found a guy selling some planes on the internet, he has a compass plane in the list, seems like it’s in two parts, I only have this picture yet, but he also has the other part (with the handle, blade, etc.)

Is it broken or just apart? Can i just put the two parts together again with a screw without modification on the tool?
I can’t find any information about the fact compass planes can split in two parts so my guess is it’s broken, but still… I want to be sure!

Thank you for your help,
Nicolas.

Stanley hardware was made to non-standard thread count and pitches and stuck with it well into recent times. If he does not have the screws I would ask for a severe discount. Basically you would have to dig up another 113 or try a bunch of screws that came from other stanley planes. I would try regular frog screws first, although they changed lengths over the years. Most stanley washers are a #12 which is still manufactured, but only sold at the better hardware dealers.

BTW, It looks like the plane was taken apart.

Without seeing the rest of it, its really difficult to say what’s needed. It might just be disassembled or it might need a lot of work/parts. If it needs parts, you will probably have a problem. I’d ask how badly you want a compass plane. Do you need one? Is this just really cheap? If you need one, does it have to be a Stanley? I see these things pretty routinely on the “bay”. I have a Type 1 Stanley and a Union. The Union works every bit as well as the Stanley.

Why would he have it in two parts? If he can’t give you good info and good pics I would leave it be, unless the other stuff is worth the price.

The guy selling it takes its time to answer my questions…
So I have to check if he got the right screw on the other part? If he doesnt, I let it go.

Thank you for your answers, i may come back if i have more pictures/informations! ;)

I don’t recall the frog being removable on the #113…

A good source for plane parts is nhplaneparts on eBay.

Maybe that’s what it is. Mine is an early type. Doesn’t have that kind of frog
