Chestnut Posted June 23, 2022 Report Share Posted June 23, 2022 My Stanley block plane recently had another gravity lesson. It took a tumble from work bench height onto my garages concrete floor and the adjustment screw/lever got bent. I've tried to find the replacement parts from multiple places but it appears that Stanley has discontinued the parts. Maybe I'm clumsy and need to change or maybe this plane is unlucky but this is the 3rd time that I've had to replace this part. Does any one know of Stanley parts replacement? I need part 12-160 hardware kit. I've searched extensively on the internet and ebay and had no luck. Should i bother trying to get replacement parts for a tool that has probably been discontinued? If any thing else breaks would I be able to fix that? Are there other resources for replacement parts for Stanley tools? Or should i just self it and buy a LV or LN block plane? If this is the case what the heck do i buy? I currently have a LN no. 101 and I love it. I also have a LN no. 140 skew left, which is a great plane. I typically use my block planes for more utility type work, like flushing dove tails or box joints. I don't use them that often for finishing tasks. I've had my eye on a scraper plane for a while. Part of me is wondering if I should just lean on the plans i have and send the block plan to pasture and get the scraper plane I want.
