Okay cool! Thank you! Still don’t see any markings so maybe time to get my eyes checked. :) I got a Bailey 5, 3, 220 and this today at a yard sale for 30$ so I think I did alright. I was hoping this one was really old.

Are there no maker’s marks on the blade itself?

I’m going to disagree. A better picture of the cap may help, but I think its a Union, not a Sargent.

I’m reading this on my phone so I could be wrong, but the Union had a thicker front part of the knuckle cap. Yours looks thicker.

I’m with doc. Almost always markings on the iron.

this gave me a good idea on an addition to my site. I’ll add more, but this should help with this particular plane,

Here’s some more pics. I haven’t been able to get to the inside yet because the screw is stuck. I’m going to soak it some today.

Definitely union. I have the #9 1/2(?) version.
Yours would have had an adjuster like this.

Ok. That’s the tip-off. The cap looks the same to me
as mine but mine has a throat adjuster that turns
instead of slides. Actually there’s a part that slides
because that’s how they work, but it’s hidden
inside.

I have to agree with Don. The cap is thicker and it lacks the little notch for the lever at the end of the slot. Plus the Union is the only company that I know that had a side to side adjustment like that. Most Sargent knobs have a hole in the middle of them so the can screw onto a rod attached to the plate on the bottom. With every other maker the plate has a small hole and the knob has a bit of a screw on the end.

Boardcop, you mentioned the screw was stuck and I was wondering if you knew the cap lifts up or I should say tilts forward. Once you flip the cap, the screw will probably be loose.

Lol no I didn’t know that! So everything is apart now and the only markings are on the blade Stanley with a heart. Thank you Disorder!
