Stanley Gage G7 Review By: I.Ball

Manufacturer: Stanley

Plane Type: Jointer

Model No: G7


           

The Stanley Gage G7 plane is a specially designed jointer plane from the Stanley bench plane range.

The Stanley Gage Self-Setting number G7 is made with an iron body, frog, lever cap, cap iron, cutter, blade adjuster, rear wooden handle and front knob.

The body is constructed from grey cast iron with machined and ground sides and sole. The machining and grounding ensured the plane body was originally flat and true (or virtually flat and true).

The top-side of the plane body is finished with the black finish which is synonymous with the Stanley plane range.

The Stanley G7 is equivalent to a Stanley 7 jointer plane with a few aesthetic and functional differences.

The main differences are the frog, blade adjuster, plane blade and lever cap.

The plane sides are also styled differently with the highest sections of the plane sides having a bit of a swept back wave design.

The Stanley Gage G7's special feature is the blade can be removed and sharpened and then put back in exactly the same position as it was when it was removed.

The G7 was fitted with a rosewood rear handle and front knob.

The Stanley Gage G7 was part of a range of Stanley gage planes, these included the G4, G5 and G6 bench planes along with the Stanley transitional gage plane range such as the number 22.
