:?: Does anyone have, or know where I can get, a depth stop for a Record 2506 side rebate? Failing that, one from a 78 rebate plane will work reasonably if it's cheap. I can make one, but the correct one would be good. When I got it from eBay without a stop I thought it was just a nice to have, but the way the blades stick out the sides it is impossible to widen a groove without digging a trench in the corner - deeper and deeper! ...Jarviser
Welcome to the forum, Jarviser. Can't help I fear; I've got a #78 skulling about depth-stop-less as it is. :( Does Stanley still sell them as spare parts I wonder? Record are a dead loss as far as a proper replacement goes, of course. The only alternative would be to try all the old tool dealers (list of quite a few in the UK on my website) but I doubt it would be the cheap route somehow, if you could find one at all. :(

Shhhhh, Mike. :-$ 8-[ How can I justify the Marples with the depth stop, but without the nicker; and the Woden with the nicker but without the usable fence if I end up with a complete Stanley that does everything? :roll: #-o :lol:

Thanks for the suggestion though. I always forget them 'cos I never buy outside the UK. But I still have hopes of finding a depth stop "in the wild"; after all that's how I found the fence for it...

Cheers, Alf
