Topic tags/keywords: blade plane

Going through a few tools that were buried away and came across a hand plane that only has “Made in USA” on it. It looks alot like my old stanley #4 but narrower. Overall dimensions are 2 1/8” X 9 1/4” with the blade being 1 11/16”” wide. If any one can help id it I would really appreciate it.



See if this looks better

You might get in the habit of taking the pic with the object in the center and left side of the screen. My phone chops the right side off too.

Saltfly, I removed the frog and it looks different then yours but the bottom is stamped “c55” on it.
Fridge, don’t really know what happened, the pics are centered on my tablet but are not uploading correctly.
I’m sure this is just a cheap knock off of a Stanley, I would just like to know what it’s copied from.
Thanks for replying.

Stanley VICTOR 1104 Clone….

Instead of the red painted stuff for the Victor line, they used black paint.

The picture shift happens when you use an outside host, such as photobucket, and link to it instead of uploading to the LJ server. It’s a long term and ongoing inconvenience. The whole picture can be viewed by right clicking and selecting “Open image in new tab”

My best guess is that you have a lower-line Stanley #3—the “C55” stamping is definitely a Stanley marking. Maybe part of the Defiance line. While having some cost cutting parts versus the premium planes like the Bailey and Bedrock lines, most Defiance can be good users. If you are wanting to use that one, the first step is to get rid of the paint on all metal to metal contact surfaces—frog to bed, top of the frog where the iron rests, where the frog screws tighten down.

That’s what i was looking for. Thanks to all for replying. Also, I thought I had to go through Photobucket to upload pics. If i’m able to upload directly to Lumberjocks, that would more convient.

To upload directly, click the brown “img” button right above the reply box. That will open up a couple choices, click “Choose File” and then navigate to the picture you want to upload. Click “Open” in that box and then “Insert this image”. The picture has to be less than 5mb.

I love you. Never knew you could do that. That makes me happy. Now I don’t have to fight with photobucket.

Uh, Yoda, wouldn’t the width make it a 1203?

Salty, Read your short story, loved it and as a young 57, I completely agree with you.
Don, thanks for that info. I was under the assumption that if it didn’t say Stanley, Bailey, or any other of their names, it was just a knock off. Stanley or not, I use this and my Stanley #4 more then any other.
Just noticed that the 1204 has a wider blade then mine. Did they make different size 1204’s

Just noticed your post Jayt
Mine has the body size of a 1204 but a blade size of a 1203.
Maybe a 1203.5?

Nope, in your pics, that is definitely a #3 size body & 2-1/4 is about right for overall width. A #4 body is closer to 2-1/2 inches overall width.
