I have a Stanley Bailey No. 8 Type 4 plane (which was made before the lateral adjustment lever). Is this plane considered collectible, or is it better as a user?

Short answer? Every plane is collectible, though the individual reasons for its collectibility may vary!

More collectible than useable, because users want that lateral adjuster on their bench planes.

Oops. I posted an almost identical post four months ago. Sorry about the duplication.
