Not sure what I can do with this crack in the threads.  The rest of the plane is in ok shape, is my first of this type, so I am trying to restore to user shape, just to learn.  I am not a machinist at all.  Any ideas?

thanks

Does the stud hold itself in and upright? if so I would clean up the threads and epoxy it in, adding extra on the side where the metal is missing.

Fairly common plane so you could wait for a good body to show up on the auction site.

I agree with Tim. Use something like JB Weld to hold it it. Nothing ventured nothing gained!

I think I can help you out with a body for that. Just give me a few days if you want.

thanks Angie, but I'm going to try fixing this one first. The rest of the plane is only ok, and Don and Tim got me motivated to fix the threads.

Maybe try metal hand moldable multi purpose epoxy putty stick? http://www.amazon.com/PC-Products-PC-Metal-Moldable-Epoxy/dp/B008H4QX5M
