Can you use a IBC chipbreaker/blade set for L-Ns in a Stanley?

I blew this off for a while but then thought I really need to ask.

This IBC set is on sale for L-N planes at Woodcraft.

But this IBC set for Stanleys is not.

I like the price on the first set, don’t like the price on the second, ignorant about everything else.

I guess no? Never compared the two types of planes side-by-side.

It is possible that they may fit some original Stanley or Record planes, but critical dimensions of these and other maker’s tools varied over the years.

Ah, thanks, I feel like an idiot not even looking over there. I might just buy it and see what happens.

Have your say...
