I have quite a few Millers Falls planes in my shop and find that they are certainly the equal of Staneys. In later years the quality fell off so I definitely stick with the older planes. It’s easy to tell by the model # stamped in the side. The number of a Millers Falls plane corresponds to the length of the plane in the older models. Hence – they are stamped #8, #9, #10, #14, #18, #22 etc. Later – the model numbers changed by adding zeros as in Model #140. SOME of these planes are still good quality but more often not.
