Parts set of 8 skew irons blades cutters for Stanley 46 wood plane
September 30, 2021
Two of the irons have been modified, so please keep reading. The six smaller plow or dado irons are marked with their sizes — 3/16″, 5/16″, 3/8″, 1/2″, 5/8″, and 7/8″. The two largest irons are unmarked. One is a plough or dado iron that measures about 1-1/8″, and the other is a 1/4″ tongue iron. Length of each iron measured along one edge varies from about 2-15/16″ to 3-1/16″. The modification shown in the 7th and 8th pictures is to the 7/8″ iron, although it is still wider than 13/16″. The 1-1/8″ iron must have started out as a 1-1/4″ plough or 1-1/2 filletster iron, but you can’t tell that it has been modified by just looking at the edges, you have to measure it. Condition is otherwise generally good to very good, with some patina (color), some spots of very light rust, and a few spots of pitting. Some have seen some light flattening. A full set would have 10 to 12 irons. Missing are the 1/4″ plough, either the 1-1/4″ or 1-1/2″ iron, and in later sets, a slitter and a 13/16″ plough iron. The winner gets all 8 irons. I sell what I enjoy, and I collect antique woodworking tools and I enjoy photography! The queue is overflowing with tools right now, as they seem to be finding me faster than I can list them. So please keep watching my postings as I have LOTS more to list! Searching my listings: I have lots to see! That will lead you to my extensive system of categories. You might ask: How can I know when you start new listings? Descriptions, and auctions with pictures only of the left side because the right side was trashed. I come from the handshake school of doing business, and hopefully you are like me and understand what that means. What goes around, comes around. However, that doesn’t mean that I won’t make an occasional mistake. Please don’t ask, the answer is no. I package well, and have a great track record. I use the US Post Office for everything. Every year the US Postal Service raises rates in mid to late January, and this year is no exception. So I wont do that for you, or to you. PACKAGING: Please check my feedback — I package well. I hope someday I will meet some of you as we trudge the happy road of tool collecting!
