How far is too much to take apart

I dissembled my No 605 to start cleaning and I donít think Iíll need to soak it because itís cleaning up pretty good with just WD40. All I have left is the frog but Iím hesitant to remove the drift pins because way back in my automotive days they made us replace them if we removed them.

Looks good. WD-40 does a good job at cleaning.

I only remove the pin for the Y adjustment lever if I am repainting. I do not try and remove the rivet for the lateral adjustment lever.

I have had a couple of lateral adjustment levers where the rivet was loose and I had to peen over.

Sleeper,
Here is a link of various images of different planes and makers

Some real nice planes and tool images.

I don't have any "part planes" I keep restoring them.

Thanks those are really cool photos. I wish there were some photos of mine because then I would print them to past on my future plane rack.

I wanted to buy a Stanley No 378 Rabbet Plane on eBay and was searching for information on it to see if it had all the parts and discovered a brand new one at Home Depot in the box for $55. I had no idea they were still making them.

I did make one big mistake while looking at Stanley Rabbit planes and I accidently mistook a Sargent #49 Rabbet Plane for a Stanley. A Sargent popped up and the price was right. I didnít notice it at the time and I bid on it. And then I was hoping that I would be outbid after realizing it which didnít happen so I ended up with it.

Now that I know a little about rabbit planes I also know that it is missing the depth gauge and I donít know what else. Maybe I can prefab a depth gauge.

I also saw a shiny new No 5 Bailey Bench Plane for $61 at Home Depot and Iíve seen them on eBay used and rusty for well over that. What the hell! Well I just paid $25 plus shipping, but it needs cleaning and hopefully no missing parts so I guess Iím still OK.

the vintage is a far better plane than the new one at home depot. I'd recommend you avoid the new Stanleys.

And the Sargents are well made as well. You won't be unhappy with it.

I believe a Stanley depth gauge will work and almost be a exact duplicate of the Sargent.

the depth gauge may work, but the Stanley will probably have different threads for the retainer screw.

I wish I would have watched this video before I started buying planes. The guy makes a lot of sense to me for just haveing a working collection of planes.

Talking Well I was not expecting this

I don't know anything about this Stanley No. 4, but it looks brand new and made in England.
I don't know if that's good or bad, but the price was definitely right after my last purchase and its all there.

That's a sharp looking plane! I don't ever think I've seen a iron, chip breaker and lever cap so new looking on a used plane.

I think its brand new and never been used so for $27, Iím very happy with it because I came close to just buying a new one from Home Depot anyway.
