Hi all

I just replaced the (plasticine) blade in my Stanley #6 with the lovely A2 blade from my LN #5.5./ A perfect fit!!!

The mouth is plenty wide enough although I had to wind the frog back on it's screws, the chip breakers fits with the standard screw without any problem and the plane is transformed.
I am using this on the shooting board at the moment as it's high mass (and so inertia) help when shooting Oak. The standard blade lasted seconds on Oak end grain :cry: but the A2 just keeps on shooting and shooting :D

Now awaiting a delivery of new blade for my #5.5 from Axminster :wink:
