I bought this #5 figuring it was a parts plane. It didn’t have a lever cap (the one in the before is one I added) and the rust was pretty bad, so I figured it was toast.

But with a lot of TLC, I think its back in true form. A type 9 I believe. The blade is pitted bad enough that I can’t see what the logo was, but the pitting stops at the cap.

Sargent #415

Next is the Sargent #415. The Sargent# 415 is like the Stanley# 5 1/2 size. This one I have before pictures of.

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

 

I put a modest camber on the blade, so no full width shavings, but a nice jack style plane for my collection.

 

And the two together

Thanks for looking and may all your irons stay sharp and your shaving stay crisp.

Sargent Hand Planes by the number–with pictures.

I’ve never found a good source for Sargent planes with pictures. Much information can be found at http://www.sargent-planes.com. This should help supplement that and other sites. I’ll continue to add information as I find it.

I don’t sell a lot of Sargent planes, but its possible I have a few. If I do, they will be found on my Tools For Sale Page.

I want to thank all those who have helped by sending me pictures and information.
