Stanley Small Trimming Plane – Hand Planes – out of 5 stars. Date First Available, February 7, See all customer images.

Let the games begin, starting with the bread and butter of Stanley, upon which they built an empire, the Bailey patent bench plane in its various configurations. Leonard Bailey designed what has become the standard plane configuration that’s still in use to this day. He was the undisputed champion of the plane slugfest that errupted in the decades after the Civil War.

If you’re at all fascinated with handplane design, follow this link to read all about the Better Moustraps. A general description of stuff to look for when examining a bench plane is listed under the 3 smoother. This stuff is applicable to all Stanley bench planes of the basic Bailey design as well as those that incorporate the Bailey patents such as the Bed Rocks , and comes from my observances of thousands of these planes.

All dimensions that follow each number indicate the length of the sole, the width of the cutter, and the weight of the tool.

Technical Details

Several factors contributed to the collapse but much of it was due to post Civil War inflation and over speculation in rapidly expanding railroads. Despite the tough economic times, Stanley kept most of its workers employed and the inventive minds working at Stanley continued to innovate, develop new tools, and worked to meet the needs of their customers and the expanding country.

I included only one of the drawings that accompanied that patent because it most clearly illustrated the adjustment mechanism I discussed in that post.

Hello, I recently acquired a Stanley-Bailey #5 and was hoping some of you fine I couldn’t find any images of planes where the sides of the bed/sole were blue.

Now you have to remember Stanley did not make or use a Flow Chart when they made planes, they used up all the old parts as they came up with new designs and plane made near the beginning of a new design style might have some of the older parts.. Example is Type 16 No. There is also what is called a Frankenplane.. That is a plane that someone took two or more planes and made one out of left over parts.. But there are also planes that some old timer might have replaced a part as it wore or broke or just wanted the new styled part for his old plane..

I will be adding a lot more images soon of the different type and hope to make a test page with some pictures so you can quiz your self and see if your at least close. The best user planes are said to me Type 10 to

Stanley planes, even the rarest of the rare, might still pop up at flea markets, garage sales, swap meets, General auctions or on a dusty shelf in a neglected corner of an antique shop.

And of course, there is eBay! Still the number one source of bargain buying for dealers and collectors alike. The more time you invest, the better the result. Prepare to get stung every now and then but more often than not the risk is well worth taking.

While comprehensive type studies exist for the no. Using existing reference material from the previous type studies, I poured over old catalogs, advertisements, the planes themselves, and anything else I could get my hands on. Rather than try to create a formal type study, I decided to focus more on the practical goal of simply establishing criteria for dating the planes within the narrowest possible time frame.

While there are still some gaps and inconsistencies across models some of which appear within the published type studies of the nos. I intend to eventually format the data into a more usable format, but for now I want to put it out for reference and feedback.
