In Detail

Designed to fit bench planes (No.4 and above), these large, comfortable hardwood handles will replace your broken or plastic handles. Supplied with a length of threaded studding (Sheffield plane thread), the only fettling you may need to do is to drill the toe screw hole if your plane requires it. A part drilled pilot hole has been provided on the underside as a guide.

Good, could be better

Beautiful rosewood looks and feels great but given the not inconsiderable price it would be nice if they could have included a screw for the toe-knob as well as the tote , and more importantly a couple of the brass nut screws. This would make it a complete kit for a renovation project which is probably what 90% of people buying this are looking to do.

Rosewood tote and nob

Just fitted a pair of these on my old Stanley 5.5 which I have just refurbed top to bottom and it finishes it off perfectly,
The Stanly is as good a plane as any of the top names so the tote and nob just puts the finishing touches to a great old plane, I think it's time my old no 8 and 6 got a set also but as said in a previous review remove the varnish and oil them much better on your hands after long sessions.

Not bad at all

I am restoring / upgrading a number of old Stanley and Record Bench Planes No4 up to No 8, new budget bench planes are simply rubbish and I can really only justify a couple of Cliftons in the sizes I use the most. Some of these old planes have broken / repaired handles so I cautiously purchased a single set of this replacement to try. Whilst you may get these to fit a No4 or No5, they are actually too big for those models (at least the ones I have). They are however perfect for Nos 4.5, 5.5, 6 - 8. You have to finish off drilling the hole in the toe, it is part drilled but you also have to counter bore down a little from the top so the standard screw will fit, this is a little tricky. I will now buy some more for the planes they fit and make my own for the No4 / No5 planes.
One tip though, scrub of the finish and oil them instead if you use planes for prolonged periods, much kinder to your hands!

A thing of beauty

My 1960s Stanley No 4,bought when I was 14,was looking a bit scruffy,and I wondered if swapping handles might cause loss of authenticity.This Crown set is exquisite,and combined with a new blade assembly and general clean up,has turned my Stanley into a looker and performer to match anything from the top three.

Much better than a plastic tote

These are a worthy replacement for those awful plastic handles you find on new planes these days, although the varnish is rather plasticky.
Axminster say they fit all planes, well they don't fit a record no3 - only nos 4 and upwards are a good match.
