Behind getting the preliminary pictures posted. During the Covered Bridge Festival I managed to rescue these treasures from the scrap heap. Last thing I needed was another block plane or pieces parts BUT... Top is a Stanley Defiance pattern/model-maker block plane; almost a clone of the Stanley 102. I suspect this is one of the last ones made which was mid 1952. Lower left, remnants of a Stanley 220; middle, remnants of another Stanley similar to the 220 but a tad shorter. Far right, Craftsman 619.3704, adjustable throat. Soles need some work...In-process on the Defiance & Craftsman to at least remove the rust and preserve until spring and warmer weather. Defiance was marked $12; paid $6...other than the color, it's nearly identical to the Stanley 102 I have. One big difference is the iron; the edges along the sides have a radius versus square edge; The (3) on the right were in a bag marked $10; paid $5...I really only wanted the Craftsman and it was complete; other two...well...the adjustment knobs just spoke to me... You can see the two Stanley's have been dropped; The top one is missing the iron, the knob and the cap lever; The middle one is complete except the big chunk missing; It has a pretty decent iron; I'll stash all back as parts donors for now; The Craftsman is complete; The iron will need some TLC to bring back but does not appear to have ever been sharpened. It has a riveted lateral adjustment lever and the cap was originally nickel plated as was the throat lock knob and blade adjustment knob. It'll take some work, but I think it will clean up pretty decent. Thanks for looking...
