[Title was updated after the part was identified]

I bought a Stanley 71 router plane recently that came with a bag of extra parts (mainly a fence and extra cutters).

This part came with it:

It’s about one inch long. None of the router-plane parts-diagrams that I’ve found show this part. Does anyone know what it is?

(Sorry, no prizes for the right answer :)

That is a Trip for a Stanley miter box. It is actually rather hard to find and I know of a few people who are on the hunt for one right now.

It attaches to the spine of the backsaw just in front of the handle to knock the catch loose on the uprights of the miter box.

I’ve listed this on eBay, in case any one is interested. Search for “trip clamp”.

Yeah, I didn’t know what would constitute a fair price.
