Stanley #93 Shoulder Plane Recast in Bronze
This Stanley #93 was made in the U.S. from 1902 to 1964 and was nickel plated cast iron. This plane is identical to the original but cast in bronze with all the Stanley identification marks removed. Recasting is not always an improvement but here it definitely is.
The #93 is a rabbet plane with a lower bedded blade angle making it ideal for cutting rabbets in woods with difficult grain and trimming the cheeks and shoulders (hence its name) of tenons. When the top section is removed the remaining section functions as a chisel plane (see the photo). The shoulder plane is an indispensable tool in any serious wood shop.
The sole of the #93 is 6 1/4" long and 1" wide. This bronze version weighs in at a substantial 1 pound 14 ounces, which makes it a joy to use.
The condition of this plane is excellent. It doesn't appear to have seen much action. There is a substantial amount of steel left in the blade.
I am a huge fan of the shoulder plane and this bronze version adds both weight and eye appeal to the original.
