Our House Brand Rosewood Handles for Stanley Bailey Style Planes

It seems like every old Stanley plane we see has a broken tote. The horn of the tote was always vulnerable to damage and many of these planes today need new totes. These totes come in two styles. For Stanley planes that did not use a front screw, like a 3 or 4, for example, we recommend our single-hole tote. For larger Stanley planes like the 5, 6, 7, or 8, you will need our two-hole totes. Our single hole totes can be adapted to work on larger Stanley planes by drilling the front hole, which is already started from the bottom, but they will not be as good a fit as the purpose made two-hole totes.

Due to our supplier of these products retiring and closing his business, we will not be getting any more of these. All we have left are the Beech handles.
