So I just recently purchased two Stanley bench planes, a no. 4 and a no. 5. I thought when I bought them that they were original sweethearts, but turns out that they only have sweetheart irons. I would really like to be educated on what I own and know a little history about my “antique” (if you will) tools. So how can I tell what era they come from?
