Sargent 507

After keeping it in a drawer for several months, I finally decided to restore an old Sargent 507, a model really exclusive that Stanley never put into production. It's the block version of the most famous Stanley 10. The 507 is a plane designated for cutting rabbets, very handy and suitable for using it with one hand. Very well finished, it mount the blade in bevel up position, thicker if compared to that of classical Stanley block planes. Needless to say, not limited to finishing rabbets and tenons, it proves to be reliable and capable of fine shavings also in finishing whit the grain.
