I recently picked up a 71 1/2 off of craigslist and I am trying to locate a thumb screw for the collar. The one I have no longer seems to fit after I soaked the parts in vinegar to remove the rust. I can push the screw right through the collar. from what I can see the threading is not stripped.

If you don’t know, you’re not supposed to know. If he wanted to address those of us who are not already in the know he would have named what he was referring to rather than using secret nomenclature. He only wants answers from those who have intimate knowledge of the subject, figuring those will be quality answers.

When I see reverences to acronyms and such that I’m not privy to, I normally bypass the message believing it’s not part of my interest set anyway.

Thanks I checked there before I posted. That one does not look long enough hand it is flat on the end. The one I have is tapered kinda. I emailed him and also contacted St Jamesbay tools to see if I can locate one.

Or if you do not know you can also “google” :0P, with knowing the part number and that it is a hand tool. I was not unclear on purpose and meant no offense. However there is at least one person in this thread that knew what I was referring to. I searched ” 71 1/2 hand tool” and the 4th entry references the Stanley 71 Hand.Plane.
I incorrectly assumed that people in the hand tools forum were familiar with the different models of hand planes.

I would assume the threading is stripped either on the screw or the collar. If its not on the screw, then you either need to re-tap the collar for slightly larger thumb screw (assuming you just want a user) and pick up a thumb screw at the big box store.

Thanks for the reply.
I am going to have to check the collar again tonight. I have the screw with me and it does not appear to be stripped. I am going to the hardware store after work to see if I can match up the correct sized screw. I just want to be able to use it for now. I only paid $25 for it so it would be nice to eventually find original parts. I found out the school where I am taking a wood working class also has a plane restoration class so I could use it as one of my class projects

if its an original Stanley thumbscrew, you probably won’t find one. They used different threads most of the time.

Thanks for the heads up before I go and potentially ruin the collar if it is not already stripped. Well the search goes on…

I checked the ones I have. They are 1/4×28. You should be able to find one. You may be in luck!

Yonak: Maybe Mr. Finn was asking because he wanted to expand his knowledge of all things woodworking. I’m relatively sure that he has no intention of joining your little secret society …now. A simple answer would have sufficed instead of a snarky answer.I am assuming that a 71 1/2 is some Stanley plane or a replica. I personally like to read a lot of different forum material in the hope that I might learn something new.Then again, you might have been kidding. We can hope.

It is a router plane like this one. http://www.hansbrunnertools.com/Stanley%20by%20numbers/Stanley%2071.htm

I have no real room in my present shop for a router table at the moment but in the interim I want to make some things that require that type of cut. I also got a Stanley 45 Combo Plane a few months ago for a real good price and I lucked out finding a set of 13 cutters locally via craigslist.

I like the idea of learning joinery the old school way first.

Its a wonderful tool for cleaning up dados made by say repeated table saw cuts. After I got mine cleaned up and sharpened I now can’t fathom how I lived without it.
