Reply To: Stanley side rebate plane No. 79 blades sharpening

I agree the blade looks salvageable with some careful reshaping,

But if you determine you need a new blade, the first place I’d try is Lie Nielsen. The side rabbet plane is the first tool that started the company, and reproductions were first made by sand casting one of the originals, so the blades should fit just fine. But just to be sure, I’d talk to the sales team to make sure before I plunked down my $40 for one.
