Stanley also sells plane kits, such as frog kits, handle kits, lever and screw kits, low angle kits and spur kits. Other kits are available as well, including depth gauge kits, fence kits, shoulder plane kits and spokeshave kits. The kits come with a variety of different components, depending on the usage of the particular kit, and range in price from $14 to $40, as of 2016.

Stanley Planes come in models made in the United States, as well as models made abroad, and the parts for each vary slightly, based on size and units of measure. It is important that users purchase parts specifically for the Stanley plane they own, to ensure proper fit and performance. Parts are available on the Stanley website or at a local hardware store. If the user does not know precisely which part his plane requires, he should ask a representative in a store or by calling the toll-free number on Stanley's website.
