    So I was asked to look at some tools.

    So I when over to look a computer for my LOML's Father's lady friend. After I was finished she said "I hear your into woodworking I have some tool for you to look at...... This is what I came home with.. Besides clamps, waterstone,etc.. and too much else to list. Best of all they were Free! Short list Stanley #12 scraper plane,#7,#5,(2)#3's,401/2. and a block plane I assume is a 60 1/2? You guy's that are a little more savvy. Could give me more info on the block plane and the #40 1/2. It would be appreciated. Thanks for looking.

    Looks like a scrub plane from the photos. Desirable plane, wouldn't mind having one. Used to rough lumber down to size. Rounded corners on the blade so it is strictly roughing it down thinner. To be finished up with one of the others.

    I can see the block plane has an adjustable mouth and that is always a good thing. Looks like a nice little plane. I have thing for block planes, by far my most used planes are my two blocks.

    That is a definite YOU SUCK!

    Nice score, Russ!

    Patrick's site is great for planes made by Stanley:
    http://www.supertool.com/StanleyBG/stan0a.html
    Scroll to the bottom for the model numbers.

    The block plane is possibly a 65. I like the knuckle cap models as far as comfort in-hand goes.

    Again, nice score.

    Take care, Mike

    Russ, I suggest that you check some price guides. Maybe it was the #112 and not the #12, but I seem to recall that one of the Stanley scrapers was quite pricey and collectible.

    And yeah, Patrick's Blood and Gore is a great place to look up plane information.
