Stanley chute plane

Recommended Posts

The 52 is particularly good for endgrain and miters. Of course, it makes jointing a long-grain seam really easy. That said, I ran out of arm power trying to square up four end cuts in 2" x 11" solid walnut!

Mine is just the plane, no chute board portion yet so I had to fabricate my own board for it. At the last tool meet I attended (Nashua, NH), opinion seemed to be that the collector value of the original Stanley 52 had fallen in recent years due to reissued versions (Veritas and Lie Nielsen).

"Japanned" is the name used for the black ashphaltum finish typical on older handplanes like Stanley. It's not a drying paint, but more of a thermoset finish. It was a very tough, durable finish that "imitated" Japanese lacquer thus "Japanning" or "Japanned".
