I just got an old BAILEY No.5 plane. It says “Pat”D and Mar-25-02 and Aug-19-02 on it. the blade says Stanley PATAP’L 19.92. It has all it’s parts and appears to be in general working order after I cleaned it up. The tote and knob are both broken and I would like to replace them as well as the blade. If anyone can tell me more about this plane I would really appreciate it. I would like to get it i to usable condition.

We can narrow yours down to between 1902 and 1909. In the typology which has arisen around the old Stanleys, this makes it either a type 9 or a type 10. Go here:
navigate to “Type Study”
The presence or absence of a frog adjusting screw, (behind the frog casting) along with the particular logo style stamped in blade (assumes original blade) will help you narrow it down.

Have your say...
