A question of difference


Recommended Posts

Last week at a house-cleaning sale a man gave me a Stanley 605. Tote is cracked and brass adjustment knob was crushed from being turned by a channel lock or something similar. Blade needs a lot of work. But overall it's restorable.

I already have a plane in this size class. Is there any functional advantage to using this over using another? As a casual user, I can't see any. Of course there might be if I were a frequent or constant user of my planes. Your thoughts?
