It’s fairly common knowledge the relationship between Stanley Rule And level Company and Leonard Bailey was a bit rocky throughout their time. There was numerous litigations throughout Bailey’s career. And with the Victor line of planes, just like the Defiance line, there were the early Leonard Bailey made planes and the much later line by Stanley. Leonard Bailey made a line of Victor Planes from 1876 through1888. The Stanley Victory line was made from 1936ish to 1942 and again in 1952 and 1953. Keep in mind the two Stanley offerings were in fact two completely different plane designs, and these were certainly different than the real Bailey design. Read more.......

Hey Don, I think this is a Bailey Victor or Defiance but I’m not sure. There are so many missing parts it’s hard to say. The cutter says Stanley on it and the iron cap is painfully incorrect but it looks interesting. The main reason I thought it was a Victor or Defiance is because of the offset depth adjustment knob. What do you think?

Its definitely not a Victor. I don’t think it’s a defiance either. A Goodel maybe?
