Topic tags/keywords: planer

My cousin stopped by this morning, gave me an old tool that he found thought I might like to have it. Its a Stanley bailey no. 6 type 19 best I can tell really good shape. Cant post pics until I figure out the camera thing, not much on computers and such. Its gonna be a damn good day! Any one know of a really good web sight for dating stanleys. Its black stanley stamped on lateral adjustment lever (two piece construction), paten on back side of lever cap, blade sharply angled not rounded on top. everything seems to type 19 but I thought the blades were rounded on top. doesn’t seem to be a frankin plane.

Type 16? Type 17 was the “war Production” planes. This is either right before the war, or just after.

thanks bandit, the reason I want to know is when my grand father taught me to use a tool (my father also) they made me understand why it was made that way who made it what it did and why so on and so forth then and only then was I allowed to use a tool. So I’m just interested in nailing down the approx. date because it makes it so much better using it when I know the history, plus grand dad wont roll over in his grave because I used a tool I didn’t research and EARN the right to use lmao. Why the war years I’m missing something please enlighten me planer. And thanks for the reply I was wondering

WWII era: Nickle plating left to line barrels of another kind….. Brass was needed for making bullet cases, Exotic woods were in short supply…..Japan had the supply almost cornered. IF something was needed for the war effort, that is where it went. Soooo, steel instead of brass, maybe with a hard rubber coating. Wood was domestic stuff.

Those fancy two piece bolts to hold knob and totes? Brass was…gone. Bolts became one piece, blued steel..bolts.
For some reason, Stanley made all the castings thicker….

The Type that was in use just before the war, Stanley went ahead and used up any and all leftover parts, went they ran out, other things were used on their place. After the war, things came back to almost normal…

So I got a plane that was made when grand dad fought the Nazis- maybe, that’s makes it so much sweeter whittle it off o1/32 or one 30.06 at a time. Thanks, need to do more research on plane terminology

I don’t think that’s a Type 17. The sites mentioned above are pretty good for pinning donw the Type and rexmill.com is another very good site.

I have a Type 16 No6 and that doesn’t look like one to me. My understanding is that the Type 16s and later will have a raised rib along the top of the curve of both the toe and the heel, which this one doesn’t.

Edit: at the same time, you have both the ogee frog and the kidney-shaped hole on the lever cap, both of which were Type 16 and later.
