Topic tags/keywords: plane question shaping

Just picked up this No. 5 Jack Plane from a flea market for $15. Any idea what brand it is? Been looking for 2 hours on the internet and can’t figure it out. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Made by Stanley…sometime between WW2 and 1962.

Clean it up, sharpened the iron, put it to work.

Then check out DonW’s site…...timetestedtools

I believe you have a Stanley “Defiance” plane

The giveaways—reddish-stained hardwood tote and knob; splayed ended lateral adjuster. The iron, if not a replacement may say only “MADE IN USA”. The lever caps are often not original, and yours may or may not be a replacement.

A Defiance jack plane would be a No. 1205. And marked as such on the iron.

Might be a Frankenplane, using Stanley parts…...

On the few Defiance planes I have had, the red goes all the way through, OP’s handles was simply painted red. Lever cap is a bit too old for that frog.

Does the red oval(ish) logo with gold inlay help at all? Not sure what this logo may have been before it started to wear off. The cast base is also painted blue.

post some picture of the lateral adjuster, the frog and the frog seats.

I don’t see a red oval(ish) logo with gold inlay, is the a picture I’m not seeing?
