    I used to have a vintage Stanley #71 that I used infrequently. I sold it in the great tool purge of 2019. Part of the reason is it was fussy to get set just right. As luck would have it, my next...

    I'm pretty sure the 102 and the now discontinued 103 used the same blade. The only difference between the two planes was the bedding angle. LN customer service should be able to confirm.

    A #46 as I recall?




    It will be primarily used as a "scrub-ish" plane, but will see some dual use. That being the case I'd like to find something in reasonable shape. I kind of wish I had kept...
