On the Bedrock planes, the castings (particularly the ones with the square side wings), are heavier than the other Stanley’s. A Bedrock 604 would be roughly similar to a Bailey No. 4. I’ve never heard of a true Bedrock that would have been number 4 instead of 604. I would be suspicious that perhaps this is a bailey plane with a bedrock lever cap, unless of course bedrock is also indicated on the base casting. That said, the best source that I know of for information about all things relating to Stanley planes is this website.
