there are numerous type studies on the web, may be your best bet. If you have the actual plane it will make it easier to identify, than just using a picture. There are links on WayneC blogs that may help. Good luck.

This is, obviously, a block plane. When you say “type of this plane” are you looking for something other than “block plane”?

That is the type that sells on Ebay for $25 to $50 bucks. ;=)

That is the little one that you get cheap to get you hooked. Then they start in with the ones that make you go broke. :)

Seriously though. A nice little general purpose plane. You will want to the one of each, the regular higher angle version and the low angle version #60 or #60 1/2 or some such. I never remember. There are a few variations in length (very minor.) The modern ones have a different number but they are about the same. If you look at the Blood and Gore and such, the real differences between block planes are the bedding angle for the iron and there are a couple variations on the lever cap.
