Stanley or Bailey wood plane?
I just aquired a 14" hand plane. It has "BAILEY" across the toe of the frame. It also has patent dates of "MAR-25-02, AUG-19-02, APR-19-10" on the frame. The lever cap has "STANLEY R.&L. CO. BED ROCK" on it. Is this plane a mungrel? All parts seem to fit together properly. Any idea of its age?
I have it appart now for cleaning and inspection. I will make it useable again.
Sorry, no pic. I don't have a digital camera yet.
