Router Plane

I scored this No.71 router plane from a friend downsizing his shop… used by his father or grandfather.

Had original box and instructions … perfect condition.

I was tempted to put this in the CNC Router category but I haven’t found out how to load G-code into this thing

Take it apart. I am sure you will find a USB port somewhere!

LMAO! :rofl:

Seriously though, an original Stanley router plane?!? WOW! I remember my dad telling me how Stanley was the gold standard for many tools. Take care of it and that thing will probably last forever. A true relic from the time when tools made in America were meant to last a lifetime!

YouTube has a few really interesting on the history or Stanley.
After watching them I started collecting old Stanley tools.

There’s something satisfying about using a really sharp hand plane…
