Do you find that using your vintage Stanley or Record plane's adjusting knob is a bit difficult? Well we did and decided to fix that by creating our Plane AdjuSTAR adjusting knob to replace the original adjusting knob on most vintage Stanley and Record Planes (and most vintage copy cat planes).

Stanley and Record made tens of thousands of planes and the standards of production varies between planes depending on when and where they were manufactured.  In particular, the threads on the adjusting knob rods are quite coarse and sloppy have a lot of variability.  With the help of our customers we have tested our AdjuSTAR on hundreds of Stanley and Record they fit about 98% of the time.

Our Plane AdjuSTAR is larger and much easier to use than the original adjusting knob allowing you to make adjustments to your blade depth setting easily.  Our design makes it easier for you to reach and turn the adjuster with your fingers and easier for you to reach the frog adjustment screw with a screwdriver. We know you will love our Plane AdjuSTAR.

  • DESIGNED TO FIT vintage Stanley and Record bench planes numbers 4-1/2, 5, 5-1/2, 6, 7, and 8.  
  • WILL FIT BUT REQUIRES USER MODIFICATION on Stanley and Record bench plane numbers 3 and 4.  Users may need to grind down the length of the AdjuSTAR arms so as to turn freely without hitting the tote or the frog.  Also, after installing the AdjuSTAR on the #3 there is not much room for you to grip on the handle.
  • WILL NOT FIT the Stanley or Record bench planes numbers 1 or 5-1/4. 
    • DOES NOT FIT the new Stanley Sweetheart line of planes.
    • 1-7/8 inch outside diameter.

    Great piece of kit

    This replaces the brass adjustment knob on your plane. It offers positive control at the tip of your fingers, but with leverage! If you use hand planes it’s a great upgrade.

    A big improvement to a vintage tool

    The adjustar provided a big improvement in the ease and accuracy of blade adjustment on my old #7 and is accessible while still gripping the plane while in use. The effort to rotate was a bit high compared with the adjustar on my new WoodRiver 5 1/2 but I expect it is due to the condition of the threads on my plane. I also occasionally bump the star while using the plane on a shooting board but I feel in time I will learn to grip the plane in a way to prevent this from occurring. Overall a very nice accessory.

    Works as described

    They work as described, much easier to adjust the plane now. Easy to install, just like the instructions say.
