Confusing, I think we may be looking at two different planes.

You are looking at two very different planes, and the ”#10” is a Frankenplane, too boot. Lever cap is off of a “Four Square plane, or a trans plane.

I would try for BOTH planes, as the second one looks a bit like a #2!

Wow! That is interesting. The lever cap looks to be a Four Square cap. Other than that, I got nothing.

The handle on te side view is the furthest protruding part, But, on the top view that is not the case.

Looks like a Stanley No 10 to me.

Whatever it is, he should put a pillow case on that thing or stop dipping in his sleep. Ewww.

Looks like two different planes to me. The #10 should have open sides.

I agree, definitely two different planes, look at the difference in shine of the finish on the front knobs.

You aren’t seeing the handle on the top pic, it’s the blade iron you are looking at.

2 diff planes based on the broken body (front right side) on the side photo, but does not show on the top photo.

I would contact the seller, sometimes sellers just throw some pictures that they have on their camera not knowing when it was taken or to which plane it relates to as long as it looks a bit similar (not everyone selling woodworking stuff are woodworkers)

The shadow one the first pic indicates an open side. The second plane may be a 3 or 4, but not a 10. Stef is correct on the pillow case however.

I agree with ShaneA , alternate planes ? , but I disagree on the pillow case, it is lovely and maybe even of the same vintage as #1.

I say they are the same plane. Although what Shane says about the light is compelling, the handle could have reflected the light to produce the open side look. Remember that simply because a plane has a base that says Stanley No 10, doesn’t mean it’s not been taken apart and had other parts from other planes installed. I do that myself with irons and caps.

He could have just uploaded the wrong pic, after all, to many people a plane is just a plane.

Russell, I believe the shadows in the first photo are a dead giveaway that these are two different planes. You can clearly see the outline of the cutout on the background, exactly as one would expect on a #10. I enlarged the second photo to make sure I wasn’t missing something, and there are definitely no cutouts. And as Lukie pointed out, very different sheen level on the front knobs.

my thought was not even about the plane(s) itself. The background is different in each pic. I know when I take a pic of a tool or the like, I don’t swap out backgrounds. Rather I just set up my spot for pics and click away.

Not to mention the first picture doesn’t have the same backdrop as the second one either.

Russel, I also have to disagree that the pictures are the same plane, unless it’s not a Stanley base. The second picture is quite clearly not a Stanley #10, no matter what frog, blade, chipbreaker, lever cap, tote, or knob is on it. Unless the guy found the first ever Stanley #10 closed sided rabbet plane…

Edit: Oops, got interrupted while typing this response, I see Chris already mentioned the backgrounds

Now it gets really interesting: I sent a question to the seller, and he replied that both photos are of the plane that is for sale!

I’m almost willing to spend the money just to satisfy my curiosity.

I think he is confused. Bid, hopefully win for a low price. Then send him message making sure he gets the #10 in the box to you. I would like one of those, for no other reason, than I don’t have one…yet.

maybe it’s a camo plane? changes it’s appearance and functionality based on the background on top of which it is put on?

I have an old #3 Stanley plane that would present the same photo as the first picture. One of the previous owners drilled a small hole in the upright, presumably for hanging the plane. That could be what is giving rise to that spot of light. You should ask him to post a picture of the other side of the plane.

He has added to the listing stating that the top photo is a different plane and to ignore it.

At starting bid of $60 i would have thought he was selling a #10 not a #4.

Look under the discription now.
“On Feb-21-13 at 11:16:50 PST, seller added the following information:
This plane is a No. 4. Ignore the top view picture that shows a #10 plane. That was accidentally entered for this plane”

What do i win???

Oh well, it is settled now. After first responding that both photos were of the same plane, I just checked the listing again and found the following information added by the seller:

This plane is a No. 4. Ignore the top view picture that shows a #10 plane. That was accidentally entered for this plane
