Topic tags/keywords: question plane

An associate across the pond claimed that this is a Stanley 150. It looks like a 110 with a depth adjuster on it.
I don’t seem to see 150 in Stanley’s numbering system. So far, I have not ran across it on Ebay. No luck in googling. Surly, it is a common plan. So, what is it?

Hum.. It kinda looks like a 220 or a 203 with a different cap. I dont think it is a stanley.

I completely agree with Deycart, that it looks like a 203 or 220, and I don’t think Stanley made any with that style depth adjustment and lever cap combo…..but I’m certainly no expert.

If you do think it’s a Stanley check out this,

Good luck!

Doesn’t appear to be a US-type Stanley block. The 203 / 220 varieties had a toggle-type cap vs. the rod shown above. Weird.

I’ll ask for better photos. Looks like there are some marking at the rear bed of the plane.

I ran across this auction on E-Bay. The seller identified it as a Stanley C-241. It looks like a match to me. My associate’s plane is probably from England.

I agree with Smitty. HHHOPKS, if you look at the knurling on the ebay posting and your original posting they are different. Same style, but I’d say different manufacturer. I’d say its a Stanley copy.

Wooden knob, tall cap, and a large diameter screws. I think the depth adjuster may be foreign to the plane.
