    They are multiplying...

    Another plane has found my shop - a #7c Stanley. It was a user, but not sure which one it is? Perhaps it has mixed parts. Seems to have attributes from type 14 -19. Seems in pretty good shape - no cracks, pretty flat and smooth corrugated sole.

    Here are the details I have:

    No patent dates cast into the bed (there are some numbers under the tote - U2 0462.
    "Bailey" is cast on the toe - in front of the knob (close to the front edge)
    "Made in USA" is cast on the toe - between knob and mouth.
    "#7" is cast on the heel
    There is a raised ring for the knob.
    No raised flat rib around heel or toe.
    STANLEY is printed vertically on lateral adj. lever. (no patent dates)
    1.25" Depth adjustment nut has diagonal knurling.
    Kidney shaped lever cap hole.


    My family of planes - they just keep multiplying

    Looks like maybe a Type 19, Rick. 1948~1958.

    Doe the letters in the lateral adjuster read vertically?

    Kidney shaped hole in lever cap, large knurled adjuster, and (excessively) heavily varnished Rosewood tote & knob are all characteristics of Type 19, along with the lateral's lettering.

    It seems to perform well on Atlantic White Cedar.


    I just cleaned up a few rust spots and sharpened the blade.

    Jim - "Do the letters in the lateral adjuster read vertically?"

    "Stanley" is on the lateral adjustment lever, but it is printed normally - so if you hold the lever horizontal, you would read STANLEY from left to right like this sentence.

    The tote and knob are painted black - not rosewood.
    It also has a Non Curved Blade Top.

    I am guessing Type 18.

    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you donít know what tool to buy next, then you probably donít need it yet.
