I think there are some rock solid experts who know everything of Union manufacturing company’s planes. I have bought couple of block planes and I want to know in which period those are. Or is those Union planes at all.
Two at the left have Union Mfg Co Irons. That smallest does not. Propably Iron is not original, but body’s shape is identical to that in the middle.
First body shape and size is suitable with Union 1905 catalog’s block plane number 227, but cap iron is different. Google gives that shaped cap irons and mechanism, when searching Union 227. So I am pretty sure that this is Union. Body have not any marking of manufacturer or size number. This must be newer than that catalog. Perhaps post-Stanley? Any ideas?
Midmost plane suits with catalogs plane number 110. Body have no markings. This could be quite old one? Or something better ideas?
On of the right have identical structure and mechanism than middle. Body have marking 102. No manufacturer. Outher shape fits with catalogs 102. Or have some other manufacturer identical structure?
I have also one Circular Plane No 411. That have Union markings in body and Iron and that knob. I don’t have just now picture of it, but it can be arranged. That was my first plane. It was belong to my grandmother father. Union is quite rare plane in here Finland, so I try to find answer here.
