    Stanley Transition Plane

    I found this Stanley #24 in Souix Falls this weekend. Another plane I didn't need but I can't resist Transitions at the right price.

    I bought a transitional 21" plane last year. It's just about ready to start using again. Nice catch!

    It's stamped
    "Bailey"
    "Stanley Rule and Level Co"
    "No 24"

    Measures 8" long x 2 7/16" wide and the wood is 1 7/16" thick. It is early enough to use wood screws to fasten the frog. No brass inserts.

    I had to lay down $30 for it. It was too pretty to leave behind.

    Pretty nice plane. Nearly a full length blade, too.

    I like that style, but using one for very long generally abrades the web of my hand (thumb/forefinger) to the point of blistering or blood. For that reason, I like the razee style transitionals, like the 35. I get a lot of argument, but I really do think the transitionals got the best of both worlds (wood or iron) wrapped up into one package.

    Stanley bought Mr. Bailey's patents in the mid 19th century. I think he worked as a foreman or designer for them afterwards. Most of the planes we use today are based on the Bailey design.

    Dennis, what's the iron stamped? Does it appear to be period correct to the plane?

    The iron is stamped:

    STANLEY in a Roman Serif font

    Below that:

    PAT APL 19.92
