Stanley 5025 Sliding Bevel Review By: I.Ball
Category: Old Sliding Bevels
Tool Type: Sliding Bevel
Model No: 5025
The Stanley sliding bevel number 5025 is made with a tough plastic stock,
and a tempered and blued steel blade.
The earlier versions of the Stanley 5025 sliding bevels had a brown plastic stock with wood grain effect. The brown 5025 versions were made <1974 - 1986>, there is also a brown stock Stanley 5025 sliding bevel made today, it is therefore likely the 5025 has been made in some form from 1974 (and possibly earlier) through to today - I will confirm this once I have the relevant literature.
The stock is shaped with a finger / thumb grip groove on either face, offering the user extra grip and giving the tool a more elaborate design over other similar makes.
The Stanley 5025 bevel is equipped with a quick
release wing nut which allows the blade to easily be locked in position
by swivelling the wing nut until tight.
The blade which swivels to any required angle was hardened, tempered, ground and blued.
The blade on these 5025 sliding bevels are set slightly offset from the stock allowing a line to be drawn along the full length of the blade when the blade is housed in the stock.
The Stanley 5025 sliding bevel was made in three sizes:
- 7 1/2 inch
- 9 inch
- 10 1/2 inch
The Stanley 5025 sliding bevel took over from the wooden Stanley 25 sliding bevel.
