So, I’m out of town traveling, and one of my favorite things to do is hit up Craigslist for planes and saws. This is throwing me for a loop because I’ve never seen a proper Stanley with raised ridges cast under the tote. I haven’t seen much, granted. If you look in the 1st and 3rd pictures you can see them. Any help smart folks?

The more I look at that single rib and read around, it seems entirely probably that it’s a Record plane with some Stanley parts on it…

Thanks,

Joe

That’s the first place I went, but I missed it. Thanks, I’ll look again.

It’s an 80’s model a type 20+. The study stops at 20. Not really worth 50. No 4 and 5 are the most common size. I would not pay more than 30 if the blade was free of rust.

I’d say an English version as well, with the cordovans being the last of the USA made planes and their easy to spot. And din’t have ribs. Lister wants to keep it too, by what he’s asking.

Definitely an English Stanley. I agree that the seller probably wants to keep it. Probably trying to placate his wife by making an attempt.
