Defiance #205 Block Plane by Stanley

Description from

offered 1927-1934

6 1/4″  long with  a 1 1/2″ cutter

Pressed/folded steel construction. Originally part of the Stanley tool chest for boys, later integrated into the “economy” Defiance line as No 1245. I don’t think many woodworkers would be game enough to call this a tool. It looks and feels like one of those horrible cheap Chinese imports you find at flea markets. Body is not marked, cutters are usually marked Defiance. I don’t know if the earlier examples from the boy’s tool chests had any markings on the blade.

Here is my write up on Defiance
