Stanley Plane Handle/Tote & Short Knob No. 5, 6, 7, 8 Walnut Replacement
This is a unfinished (no stain or clear varnish), solid walnut hardwood handle/tote and the (the OLD TYPE SHORT front knob that is designed to fit vintage Stanley Bailey type planes No. 4-1/2, 5, 6, 7, 8, and the Bed Rock series No. 606 to 608, from the 1902 patent date until around 1910 The short knobs will not fit the newer planes with the raised boss cast at the base of the front knob mounting area. (We have the newer type tall knobs in other listings at this store). Each is in very good condition with no damage or cracks, formed and all needed holes drilled to use as is, or finish yourself. Although this type of handle and knob is a copy or duplicated shape (from planes that have the 1092 patent date cast on them just behind the frog, and made to fit any of the Stanley number planes listed above during the period from 1902 until 1918 there may be some variations due to a handle design change in/or around 1907. So I suggest comparing your original tote handle to the pictures in this description. These older planes originally had Rosewood handles, where these replacement are black walnut. Although walnut is not the original type wood used on Stanley planes it is similar appearance to the vintage rosewood when stained and finished. This handle is 98." thick x 4.8" high x 3.37" long at the base. The knob is 2.03" long x 1.8" diameter at the widest point. This handle is about the same thickness as original as they were .96" thick on average. Price is per one tote/handle and knob. As you can see in the pictures clearance holes and counter bore are in each handle, ready to bolt onto your plane using the original hardware/screws. If you intend to apply a stain or varnish type finish, some finish sanding we be required. The rounded areas of the handle will sanded, in the normal sanding process if you wish to varnish or otherwise apply a finish, or use the handle as is. The grain pattern on each is similar, but not exactly the same, each is unique. It takes me about 15 minutes per handle to sand the handles I have for sale that are finish. If you would rather have a finished tote and/or knob, you can purchase one or more at this website, but in a separate offering that you can find by using this website s internal search feature. We also have plane knobs, and other types of handles for planes and antique hand drills available for purchase at this store.
