    Picked up a Sargent 1080. Looking for cutters.

    Picked up this Sargent 1080 combination plane recently. It is in excellent condition and appears to have seen very little use. Unfortunately, it only came with a single cutter, which was/is installed in the plane. So, the hunt for a set of cutters has started. If anyone has a lead on a set, please let me know.



    This will be my second attempt at learning to use a combination plane. I bought a Stanley 45 from a member here a while back but could never really figure out how to make it work. I traded it to another member for a plane that I knew I could use and really needed at the time. This time I am determined to figure out how to makes this thing work.

    Mark,
    Will Stanley 45 cutters work in the Sargent?

    Unfortunately, no. The Sargent cutters have different adjustment notches.

    You could file an addition notch in the Stanley to make it work in either plane. Much easier to find the Stanley blades.

    Filing a notch (or two) might work, but I am not in a big rush. I can wait until I find a Sargent set.

    Did you find some? I'll be near one of my hot spots for vintage tools later this week if you want me to check.

    I was going to post an eBay link for a set of Sargent cutters, but I believe your cutter set picture above is from that eBay sale and you are already aware of it.

    Yes. That set just doesn't loo right to me.

    No problem. PM me your contact information and if I find a set I'll give you a call. If I get the chance I'll run north next week and see if I can find some at a few spots I know.
