STANLEY No 5 1/2 Jack Plane - War Production *SOLD*
A tidy English STANLEY No.51/2 jack plane.
Dismantled, cleaned, checked, oiled and reassembled.
Fitted with a 23/8 inch English STANLEY flat top blade iron and matching cap iron, 7/8 inch remains below the slot.
Retains the majority of its original black finish throughout.
This example has very thick side walls and is believed to be a WW2 production plane.
Heavier than the standard 51/2 jack planes, this one weighs in at 6lb or 2728g.
The war finish planes did not have nickle plated parts and this can be clearly seen on the lever cap which has almost all of its original orange background to the STANLEY trade mark but no sign of nickle plating.
Patches of the original 'blued' finish remain on the screw and plate that fits over the frog adjusting screw.
Good hardwood handles with patches of their original dark lacquer finish.
A few very minor surface knocks, scratches, pitting and staining spots, please see images.
All parts move freely and tighten securely.
15 inches overall length.
