So as the title says I need help on dating a Stanley brace. I have searched the net and cant find any info on it. Also I am looking for a extra set of jaws, one of them is out of shape and kind of messed up looking. It is stamped Stanley the on the other side no.955-10in and it has a ratcheting mechanism. the chuck isn’t straight its is bell shaped. Any help would be appreciated and thanks for reading and commenting if you do.

Try here:

The blog by Wayne may have the answer in the original posting but if you cant find it there id say pose the question in the drill thread. Plenty of smart fellas over there with enough knowledge to date your brace.

According to “Stanley tools: guide to identity and value” It was made from 1905-1932 and came in 8, 10, and 12 sweep, hardwood handles, nickeled or polished.

Hmmmm, I must misinterpret things a lot.

I read the title and thought, “Wow, I had a hard time dating women when I was young, and this guy is really bad off, He can’t even get a chunk of steel to date him.”

(Sorry, my mind works in mysterious ways).

Bandit mine looks like that but bass 955 stamped. I looked on eBay for on for parts but it seems a 955 hasn’t come up for sale on there. I don’t know what the difference in the models are or if the jaws are interchangeable so if anyone knows please let me know.

Have your say...
