Can you get a pic of the adjuster, the square blade top (although it very likely has been replaced) and the red stained tote and what appears to be steel screw heads make me think a type 17, but without the adjusting knob I can’t tell. Don is more than likely right but just throwing my speculations out there.

The cool thing about this one is the “STANLEY” is written vertical on the lateral adjust (which makes me think its a type 19) but its upside down.

Very cool.

I saw that also and was wondering if that was in the type 17 if they did it upside down on that one but can’t find anything and it has a brass adjuster so as usual Don is correct lol

Did I miss something? I see Bailey and Stanley on the tool. I’ll admit, I don’t know much about them. I do have a bunch of hand planes, a couple draw knives, spoke shaves, a bow saw but since the invention of electricity and power tools, I pay no attention to any of the powerless tools. ............

It’s a Stanley Bailey 5-1/4. I was just trying to get the type. I think everyone agreed that is a 19

Jerry if you ever want to get rid of those useless old tools, keep me in mind, would you. :)

Here’s a site that is excellent for determining plane types for Stanley. www.rexmill.com

And Jerry, please put me in line if you decide to throw out those old hand tools :)
