STANLEY SCRUB PLANE NO. 40 1/2. RARER ONE OF THE SWEETHEART MARKS (1921-22). VVG

STANLEY SCRUB PLANE NO. 40 1/2. RARER ONE OF THE SWEETHEART MARKS (only 1921 & 1922).
The No. 40 1/2 is 10 1/2" long (including the tote overhang) and has a 1 1/2" wide convexed ended blade. This gutsier size makes it more desirable to the woodworker, who is hogging off wood. However, as it had a much shorter production-time life span than its more common cousin, the No. 40, it is considerably rarer.
Excellent condition: No rust. Sharp blade. Good japanning coverage. No checks or chips in the handle or knob. All parts original.
