BTW - he had a copy of the "purple Stanley book" (this is a reprint of various catalogues) and the prices ARE nutty!Actually, I would love to pay 'full retail'. In 1952, Stanley sold the No. 2 for $7.45.

Don't have dimensions but have a number of #2 planes with short front knobs !I will likely need to turn a front knob and wanted to ask the "hive mind" if anyone has dimensions for me.
Also, come to think of it - I don't know if it is supposed to be a "short" knob or the "balloon" style?
Great find, especially for that price!!!That is a 6" rule, for proportion...
Yea, yea, yea, I need a knob... but that shouldn't be too hard... (famous last words! LOL)
Ah, yea, that is a $6 ticket on it.. (but I made up for it, I bought a bunch of other junk from him for total of $100...)

So, for the curious, I checked the knob from a #1 and the #2 is a slight "up-scale" from that knobHere you go.
