Stanley 112 Review By: I.Ball
Category: Old Cabinet Scrapers
Plane Type: Scraper Plane
Model No: 112
The Stanley scraper plane number 112 has a 9 inch long plane body with
an adjustable scraper blade holding mechanism which allows the user to
tilt the scraper blade to the required angle.
The angle of the scraper blade is set by turning the large brass adjuster nut found towards the rear of the plane.
The Stanley 112 scraper plane holds a scraper blade to 3 inch wide.
The scraper blade is locked in position by turning the brass lever cap nut.
The body is made from cast iron and is fitted with a shaped Rosewood rear handle and front knob. The handling of the scraper plane is virtually the same as a smoothing plane, giving it the familiar comfortable feel.
The surface of the body is finished with a black japanned finish as common with
nearly the whole Stanley range.
Similar versions of the Stanley 112 have been made since the original Stanley 112 plane, these include the Veritas scraping plane, Lie Nielsen scraping plane and the Kunz 112 scraper plane.
The Stanley 112 scraper plane is used to give a surface a super smooth finish.
