I recently found a Stanley 80 and 81 which did have the rosewood bottom. Each one though was missing a thumb screw, are the thumbscrews used a size and thread that is commonly available today? Would like to get one or both but not if I have to pay too much for one with shipping of eBay. The 80 was also missing a blade while the 81’s was too short but I assume woodcraft sells them. What would be a good price in these?

The screws are not standard and to complicate things the 80 had several sizes for some of the screws. I have a few, Send me a picture.

A thumbscrew off a #78 will work for a #81.
