Stanley #65 type 1 restoration

See my other block plane post

This is a recent restoration of a type 1 Stanley #65. According to Virginia Tool Works this would have been manufactured in 1898 through 1900.

Most folks are more familiar with the later type #65 with a knuckle cap and adjustable mouth.

The knuckle cap actually didn’t start until 1913.

The adjustable mouth came about in 1905.
