Stanley No 72 chamfer plane
« on: August 02, 2019, 07:28:03 PM »
 Got this plane at auction tonight. Don't know how old it is but Stanley Rule and Level marking on cutter tells me it is fairly old. Don''t find a type study for this plane. Any info appreciated.

Nice score Jim, for what it’s worth, it is pre 1920, but you probably know that.

You can find more information at Pat Leach's site below.

Stanley62, looks like it is almost broke in two, I think he should send it out to you so you can fix it.

Well, that was a score!  They're uncommon tools.

As long as you have the plane, keep an eye out for the 'bull nose' attachment and the 'beading' attachment. Beading attachment also comes with 6 or 7 beading tools, which are usually mia. They are quite rare.

Patrick Leach, in his long essay on Stanley planes, says the cutters on the beading/molding attachment to the No. 72 are identical to those sold for the Nos. 66 and 69 beading tools, and Lie-Nielsen sells sets for their version of the No. 66.

I agree with Lewill!!!  It should probably move to California where I could nurse it back to health!...  Lol,  just kidding Dad (Jimwrench).  Again, nice find.

Based on your earlier comment, that’s what I was thinking.   It’s nice that you share an interest in old tools.  Son or not, I don’t think he’s giving up that recently acquired #72.

Jim,

Believe it or not, there is a Stanley #72 Type Study.  I have it, but like the 60 series block plane Study that coolford was looking for a while back, it’s too big to post on the site.  I’ll dig it out, have someone scan it onto the computer and then attach it to an email if you’re interested.  Let me know.

While these aren't common tools, I do wonder about their application: most planes are best on work that runs through, and a lot of chamfers on traditional work are not through chamfers, but stop as they approach joints.  The Stanley 65 spokeshave seems to have been designed for such chamfers, but I'm wondering if the cabinetmaker used the spokeshave to start the work, then transitioned to the 72 for the bulk of the run - ?

I ask partly because I bought myself a Stanley 65 spokeshave some time back (another tool that's languished as I try to get the refurbishing of the house done - which will take forever at this rate!).

 Jim C thanks for the offer. My email is Jim Stanley 80 @ Gmail.com
 I'm guessing its a type 2 and knowing for sure won't change things.
Sorry Stanley62 you willhave to come back here to feel it.
Got a Stanley 50 at same auction Looks like a type 5. Has no cutters and missing a lot of plating. Stuck a 45 cutter in it for fun.
