This is my first post. I have owned a P & C bench plane for about 35 years. The only identification on this plane is the P & C logo on the side of the plane followed by the registered trademark symbol followed by 1940 followed by USA. The sole of this plane is 8-1/4” the total length is 9-1/4” and the width is 2-1/2”

The plane is in very good condition except the lever cap and the cap iron are missing (don’t ask how this happened I don’t want to go there).

Does anyone have any ideas on how I might obtain these parts?

There are old hand tool websites…I can’t think of the URL for one right now, but a google search might pay off.

An old Stanley No 4 or No 5 lever cap and cap iron will fit yours just fine. P & C is probably just a hardware company that private labled planes that were actually made by Stanley. You can buy the parts straight from Stanley through the internet or you can hunt on Ebay. Course your post is 300 days old so I’m sure your problem is solved by now.

Have your say...
