Anyone know what the B stands for? It looks brand new. Any idea what it’s worth?

thanks

mbs, Check out this article/ site. http://oldtoolheaven.com/bench/benchtable.htm It will talk about the B, as well as other Miller Falls info.

I had opened that article and searched for 140B and didn’t find it so I closed the article. The B isn’t a very substantial change, is it?

thanks for the quick reply.

The 140 was an intermediate level jack plane. They were made for about 10 yrs or so ending in 1968 I believe. The B really wasn’t a change in the plane, just in the labeling.
