Bedrock was Stanley’s top line…a slight step above the Baileys. You’re correct that a Bedrock 605 is the size equivalent of a Bailey #4. The Bedrocks tend to fetch a higher price. AFAIK, the biggest difference is with the adjustment mechanisms on the frog. There may also be other differences. As with any plane, it’s performance will boil down to good setup and sharpening.
