I came across an old craftsman plane at a flea market, and grabbed it for $5, in the process of fixing it up right now. I’m kind of curious about when these planes were made. It says 409 on the back of the frog but nothing else to go on.

It looks just like this one:

Except my handles appear to be made from a brown plastic.

Does anyone know what time frame these guys were made in?

Hey, I am not sure how old it is but I do have the same plane or one much like it. I also got for around 5 dollars at a sale… After cleaning it up and giving a good tune up I find it to work well for what I use it for.
