Stanley 212 Review By: I.Ball

Manufacturer: Stanley

Plane Type: Scraper Plane

Model No: 212

This review is on the Stanley small scraper plane number 212 also referred to as the Stanley 212 single handle scraper plane.

The handy Stanley 212 scraper plane is 137mm (5 1/2 inch) long with a forward tilted rosewood front knob and finger/thumb indent grips on the outer side of the plane walls, all set-up to make it easy to use one handed.

The Stanley 212 has a blade angle fine adjustment mechanism for accurately setting the angle at which the blade is set.

The blade angle fine adjustment mechanism is controlled by turning the centrally positioned brass nut.

The plane accepts scraper blades up to 35mm (1 3/8 inch) wide.

The blade is held in place / released by turning the knurled edged brass nut on the lever cap.

The 212 has the usual Stanley black japanned finish.

The Stanley 212 is effectively a compact version of the Stanley 112 scraper plane.

The Stanley 212 has since been revived and modernised in the form of the Veritas small scraper plane.
