I was fortunate enough to get my first Stanley Bedrock off Ebay. I’ve collected vintage planes for a while and all the seller’s pics looked good. However, when my new plane arrived I found a small hole in the top of the frog behind the lever cap retaining screw.
Is my new plane destined to be a rosewood-toted paperweight? The hole looks like a void in the frog’s casting and there also appears to be tiny cracks leading to the machined surface. Kinda scared it will break behind the screw when the plane is in use.
Thanks in advance,
