Sargent Block Plane No. 207 VBM Rare!
This is a very nice, rare bock plane marked on the cutter blade "SARGENT NO. 207 VBM NEW HAVEN CT. U.S.A.". It features the lever cap cover, and the lever controlled blade depth adjustment. The lever action blade adjustment is particularly nice feature, very easy to adjust the blade, and the cap cover holds it very securely in place. This block plane is in very nice shape with about 98% paint, the mahogany knob has about 95% original finish on it, and all the bare metal surfaces are clean, rust free, very little wear, no pitting, some minor staining if a few small areas. The plane measures 7" long, and has a 1.62" wide blade. Similar in size to a Stanley No. 220, but the blade is at a steeper angle, looks like 25 degrees on the Sargent, compared to 23 degrees on the Stanley 220. A very nicely made plane, in very good condition! Very rare model also!
