Fulton 107


Another American Boy

and an American Boy family picture

Does anybody have information on the American Boy? Who made it? When?

Sargent #207 Block. Needed a new knob, so it got some cherry.

#4. Every one should have a painted black and white. Even the nuts, bolts, frog and everything else was painted. I think it was house paint to.


Sargent #15 more here


Stanley #130

And after. I had to turn a knob. I had a piece of wenge just about the right size, so wenge it was.

Type 17 Stanley #4




Sargent #415

. The Sargent# 415 is like the Stanley# 5 1/2 size. (blog here and here

Note the condition of the knob and tote. They obviously needed replacement, and I wanted something other than rosewood. I decided on bloodwood. A lot of Sargent’s came with Mahogany, but I didn’t have any available. I thought this was a suitable replacement. And Of course I never make one at a time.

The japanning was shot as well, so it needed to be stripped and repainted. As with the #708 and all my repainting, I used Dupli-Color Engine Enamel DUPDE1635 Ford Semi Gloss Black spray paint

Sargent 307 type 2

And here is what it look like now;

Sargent 306




Sargent Knuckle





I had some time in the shop yesterday. Here are 2 Handyman planes I picked up. A #4 and a #5. The #4 was repainted, the #5 is original. I don’t repaint the knob and tote very often, but I did on these.





An Orange handled #5. I think it may be a Defiance.







S4 before



Stanley Type 11 #4c







Was bought on ebay as a handyman #3

As I started stripping it and as it unfolded I became a bit confused. Having never had a Handyman before, it took a while to sink it. I have what appears to be a type 5 – #3 with a handyman cap and a type 10 or 11 v shaped logo iron. SWEET.

Just find a cap of the right vintage, and now it looks better.



Millers falls #14b

So basically what I’ve done to this is glued a piece of bloodwood to fix the tote, sand and refinish the knob and tote, stuck it in evapo-rust over night and sharpened it.
