I picked up a Stanley No.7 Jointer Plane 607 off of Ebay. I’m not sure is these are the original screws for the handles. I thought they were a threaded rod with a brass top. Correct me if I’m wrong. Here are some pictures.

Sorry for the blurry pictures. If they ain’t the original screws, anyone have any idea where I could get them? I’ve been looking on Ebay and I haven’t seen nothing.

I’m going to have to vote, definitly not. Even when they went to a 1 piece screw it was different looking than that in all the planes I’ve seen.

That is what I was thinking. The thread on the longer screw is boogered up and looks like someone cut it. Any idea where I can get one of these? Will any other handle screws fit?

If you have a 607, that should be a Bedrock plane. That was Stanley’s high end plane. I’m pretty sure they never used the screw head type. Only the threaded rod & brass end piece. I’d check the threads in the plane body because I think Stanley had a unique thread.
As to replacements, you could always watch ebay. They show up from time to time or you could look for a beat up parts plane like a Stanley 5,6, 0r 7. I think the handles are the same on all of them. You don’t need to look for a 607 specifically. -SST

The Bedrock 605 Type 6 that I refurbed had the threaded rod and separate brass head….made 1914-1918. Many of the older Stanley planes had that hardware, so you should be able to replace with something closer to original fairly easily.

Go to the stanley site: “”. Pick the plane and there will be several parts you can order.

Shopsmithtom- How would I tell if its a Bedrock plane? The lever cap does not have a Bedrock or Stanley letters on it. And the Ebay ad said it was a Stanley plane.

knotscott- You did a real nice job with that plane. Thanks for the info.

Elaine- Thanks for the link but the hardware does not appear to be brass.

I believe he does. I gave them a call the other night and they said they had everything I needed. Ordered it yesterday. Thanks a lot Tim! I just hope the threads are the same.
