Topic tags/keywords: plane milling joining question

Curiosity got the best of me. I purchased this scrub plane off of eBay. It brought less than a stanley #40. It didn’t have any makers marks on it other than the “B” in two diamonds. I did take the tote off and there is a 83 cast under there. Does anyone know who the maker is? The Plane looks to be in good condition and older. Thanks…

I don’t know in this particular case but they used to do a lot of what we call “OEM” now. Companies sold planes and other tools without a brand which the hardware stores sold as a house brand. Lakeside, Sears, Montgomery Wards and many others. Sometimes they had them customized with extra labeling or maybe a different stamp on the plane iron. Some just left them plain.

Looks like a nice scrub. Enjoy it.
