This is a rosewood stained and clear finished solid walnut handle/tote and front knob, that is designed to fit vintage Stanley Bailey type planes No. 4-1/2, 5, 6, 7, 8, and the Bed Rock series No. 606 to 608, and some others as well. Each is in fine condition with no damage or cracks, formed and sanded before finishing, with some very minor finish issues, but has never been used. Although this type of handle is a copy or duplicated shape and made to fit any of the Stanley number planes listed above during the period in the 1940's when there was a shortage of Rosewood, this handle will fit the same type or number planes dating back to 1907, although the older planes originally had Rosewood handles and knobs, where this set is walnut, and walnut has a very similar appearance to the vintage rosewood with the rosewood stain finish. This handle is .99" thick x 4.6" high x 3.3" long at the base. The knob is 2.5" long x 1.7" diameter at the widest point. Price is per one tote handle and knob. As you can see the clearance holes and counterbore are in each handle, ready to bolt onto your plane using the original hardware/screws. This type of knob is made to fit into the raised boss in the castings of the 1940's and later planes, but will also fit the earlier models with no raised boss in the casting.
This is a black painted hardwood (usually walnut) handle and knob that is designed to fit vintage Stanley planes No. 5, 6, 7, 8, and some others as well, like the Bedrock 605, 6, 7, 8 etc. The handle and knob are in very good condition with no damage or cracks, some very minor finish issues, but have never been used. Although this type of handle and knob were made to fit any of the Stanley model number 5-8 planes listed above, from during the period from 1942-1947 when there was a shortage of Rosewood, this handle will fit the same number type planes listed above, dating back to 1907, although the older planes originally had Rosewood handles, where this set is hardwood with a black painted finish on it. The handle is 1.0" thick x 4.5" tall, and the knob is called the tall knob type, and is 2.7" tall x 1.65" diameter at the widest point. The knob is also tapered at the bottom to fit into the raised round boss that is cast on the 1942-1947 period planes, but also has the clearence inside diameter hole to fit the older style plane as well. A number of these are available, there are minor finish and grain variations, but all are basically the same sizes and condition.
