How can I fix or replace a broken wingnut on my Stanley No220 Block Plane?


Hi Steve. A cursory check on ebay shows you can buy one for as little as 7.00. I suggest buying one used or one being sold for parts. I had this same part broken on mine. They are cast metal and tend to break. From one wood worker to another, I'd highly recommend bumping up your game to a plane with an adjustable throat like the Stanley 9 1/2 adjustable throat plane. You'll thank me for the rest of your life! :)

How do i assemble a stanley block plainer


1, Lay pencil on the table top, place body of plane with the front (toe) resting on the pencil, so the light passes beneath the front and middle of the plnes body.
2, lay blade, bevel side up, in to body of plane, ideally sharp end is sticking out of the mouth ever so slightly., 1/2-1mm.

3, Release the knob or lever cam on the lever cap and place on top of blade.

4, tighten knob/turn leaver till it tightens on the blade. and your ready.

5, If the blade isn't protruding the mouth correctly then:

6, Loosen a knob/lever a little to allow the blade to just move, adjust the blade forwards/sidways, lock it in place by re tighten the knob/lever.

Plane a thin piece of wood, re adjust as necessary till wafer thin shavings collect in the mouth ontop of the bevel.

How to adjust


Those are funny little planes - they're wicked handy when you need one. I like mine a LOT.

They ARE coarsely built, not a "fine" tool, but they do a fine job.

Loosen the little screw SLIGHTLY, then either bump the rear of the iron (to extend it more) or the rear of the plane (to extend the iron less) against a piece of softwood (bench, sawhorse, 2x4, hammer handle). When it's where you want it, tighten the little screw again.

Adjust the plane's mouth (assuming that you're using it as a bullnose plane, not as a chisel plane) by loosening the big screw, then just sliding the bullnose front & rear.

Remember - planes are meant to SHAVE wood. The iron should NOT take off a thick shaving, it should take off a shaving no thicker than one sheet of toilet paper. The iron should BARELY peek out from under the plane.

I need a owners manual for a stanley 12-920 plane


I can't locate the instructions for your plane, but the instructions for the current models should answer most of your questions. See this link.
If that doesn't work for you, do a google search on "tuning a hand plane" and you'll find a wealth of information that should help you sort it out. There are also excellent books and articles available on the subject, with many views on how to properly set up your plane. I suggest you start with Taunton Press or Fine Woodworking magazine, and go from there. Your local library may have access to older article which will help you to set up and properly use this excellent tool.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

How rare is a 120 block plane made by stanley USA NO STARS ON IT


these planes were made by stanley from 1876 till 1947, it is about 7 1/2" long and cutter is 1 5/8" wide, it is virtualy exactly same as stanley 110, but it has blade raiser installed.

most popular are models without star and these are valued at anything between $20 to $80, depending on the condition, if with original box, labels, they are about double the price.

6 star model, second most popular, is not exactly rare but value can be between about $50 to $250

5 star model, it is rare, if complete, its value is between $300 up to $800, it differs in that that it have raised front end knob receiver

original price was $1. and for another $1 you will receive dozen blades...

i hope this help you?
