I have a Stanley #40 Sweetheart scrub plane that I plan to put on eBay, but
it is missing the front knob and Screw/nut attachment that screws into the
top of the knob. Is there a place where I can purchase these parts. I
would prefer finding original replacments, otherwise will turn a knob
myself, but feel this would take away from the planes value.
Believe it or not but the answer is Stanley.
I can't remember the name of the girl/woman who answers the
phone and takes orders but I've never heard a discouraging
word about her from those who've called.
Sell it the way it is. If all of the parts are not original the collectors
won't buy it. Let the new owner fix it the way he/she wants to.

Many different styles of plane used common toats, so try to find a scrap
Stanley plane which uses the same toat. Tool dealers commonly "rob" a
handle from a waster plane in order to complete a good one. As far as
anyone can tell it is original.
Unfortunately, replacement totes (and knobs) now are made of plastic..I
wouldn't put a plastic anything on an old plane, or any other woodworking
tool. I have quite a few planes myself, leave it to the buyer to replace.We
tool "collectors" are a strange lot.
