Did anyone ever say what kind of plane the c557 is? I have one much like this:
http://cgi.ebay.com/STANLEY-Woodworking-Plane-C557B-/250755475680?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3a6230e8e0

but in better condition.

Is it a scrub plane?

WayneC said it is a modern version of the #4 smoothing plane. The Jack plane is a #6.
