Stanley 75 Plane Review By: I.Ball

Manufacturer: Stanley

Plane Type: Bullnose

Model No: 75


           

The Stanley 75 bullnose plane is a basic, useful, little budget plane for users who need a bullnose plane now-and-then.

The Stanley number 75 is a small two-piece bullnose rebate plane consisting of an upper black coloured piece and a lower steel piece.

The bottom half of the lower section is exposed natural steel, the top half of the lower section has the black Stanley finish.

The plane is designed with it's blade positioned very close to the end of the plane with only a short sole in front of the blade's cutting edge. This allows the plane to be used almost all of the way into a corner.

The mouth's opening can be adjusted by loosening the large screw at the top of the plane, located just behind the top part of the blade. This screw is also used to adjust the depth of the cut by hand. The setting of the mouth and the blade is done manually without the use of fine adjustment mechanism's.

Record made an identical model no. 075 bullnose plane which we find is more popular / collectable and is a little harder to find than the Stanley model. The blade on the Record model is also slightly thicker than the Stanley blade. Edward Preston also briefly made an almost identical model of this plane.

The Stanley 75 bull-nose plane is almost identical to the Edward Preston 75 plane and the Record 075 plane, the only real difference being the colour and the markings.
