    By no means am I an expert on this, but I think at least the tote may be rosewood. Nice work.

    Sargent VBM (very best made)

    Hi! I also have a couple of Sargent planes that need to be restored. Some handles and their fasteners are missing. I live in Russia and do not use inch thread here. Can you tell me what type of thread is being used on tote and knob nuts and cap screw?

    I would presume the back handle (tote) is the original one. Most likely a kind of rosewood, maybe brazilian rosewood. The knob I think you are right when guessing beech. I think that knob is a replacement and not the original as a manufacturer would not use different wood on the handles. Beech is a very affordable hardwood for replacement handles as it is durable and stains well.

    Just finished restoring a 409 that I found while we were clearing out my late great grandpa’s wood shop. Nothing makes me happier than giving new life to old tools. Cant find anything else that gives me such a feeling. I’ve been picking up lots of hand saws from local goodwills to get my restoration fix haha. Cheers mate

    what paint did you use?

  10. Gavin Trousdale on April 24, 2022 at 7:01 pm

    I just took the same model out of a vinegar bath about an hour ago that I gave $5.00 for. having trouble getting the frog out,
    . are there any suggestions on dealing with the stuck screws?

  11. James Smith on April 24, 2022 at 7:02 pm

    Not to ment to dig on you, ok.
    A, the tote and knob should be indian teak, but with a 100 year old used plane ? .
    B. The "paint " on the body is not paint but a type of wood pitch called japaning. Look up tool rescue on yt. He shows how to make it and how to bake it on.
    On the web look up sargent planes by the numbers, a good sorce for inpho.
    Nice score and nice restore.

    The rear tote looks to be rosewood. Most of my Stanleys have rear totes that look like that after I cleaned them up.

    Once again, nicely done! 👍

    Nice save, looks great. About the iron, the rounded corners aren’t necessarily a defect of grinding, although in this case they might be! Rounding off the corners can be done deliberately to help prevent plane tracks; the other method to help reduce or prevent these is to camber the cutting edge. On a jack plane a cambered edge was generally used traditionally as they were intended for stock removal, not as heavy as with a true scrub but could be used similarly. The camber would have varied from owner to owner depending on how they used the jack in their planing sequence, whether they had a scrub or fore plane for the really heavy hogging-off work or not.

    VBM = Very Best Made in case you haven’t discovered that since the vid went up.

    _And_ if you’re interested in the grits on your Norton combo stone, they are 180 on the grey side (this is a medium Crystolon) and the orange side (fine-grit India) is approximately 340, although it’s usually quoted as 320.
