Stanley No.7 restored.

stanley No. 7 restored

 

I purchased this Stanley No. 7 a few months ago and just got around to restoring it yesterday. When I picked it up it was in a bit of a state. The lever cap was broken and both handles split. Fortunately I purchased a No. 4 1/2 Stanley Eng at the same time and used it as a donor plane. Although the No. 7 is a USA made plane it is of no consequence as these planes are users only. At present I have approximately 50 Stanley type planes, I find them hard to turn down when given the opportunity to buy while on the hunt for infill planes. Stanley planes hold a place at the top table in plane making history and I have had the pleasure in restoring hundreds in the last 20 years of collecting.
