I recently found this old beat-up Stanley #29 in an "antique" shop recently. It's missing the iron and chip breaker and front knob, and the body has been broken and repaired with a 1/4" steel plate (it’s heavy!) -- but it had what I needed. I already have a couple of #29s in my shop, one of which some years ago I restored and put to use. It was already in very good condition, no checking in the body, all the pieces present, and I was pleasantly surprised to find that it had a Sweetheart iron(!); however, somewhere along the way the lateral adjustment lever broke off and was lost. This find gave me another frog complete with lever which just needed cleaning and paint (a real bargain for the $1 price I paid).
