About Stanley 4 1/2 Plane
Whether collecting, or working with hand tools, a Stanley 4 1/2 plane gets the job done well as it is lightweight enough to be easy to handle, but the 4 1/2 blade is wide enough to handle most smoothing situations. A Stanley block plane can be purchased on eBay where sellers offer a huge range of sizes from the Stanley No. 1 plane to No 6., and everything in between. New or used Stanley 4 1/2 plane blades can be found, with some vintage options dating back to the 1800s. Because the Stanley has been in production for so long, there are hundreds of slightly different styles and models that might be available including solid body or those with replaceable blades or rubber comfort grips on the ball. Because every seller on eBay is rated, you can choose to buy from Top-rated sellers, many of whom offering free shipping.
