Stanley or Bailey wood plane?

by Grizzley
(Chaumont, NY)

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.

Bailey /Stanley
by: Anonymous

Seems to me that this is no accident. The must be a merged company or something. I have a Beautiful 8" plane with the same attributes you mention. It is superior in quality to newer ons on the market. Mongroul or not it's worth every penny I paid, which was not much but would never sell it for any price! Well maybe if it were the right price LOL I love it and it is one of my favorites. Ken

Stanley #3 Plane ?
by: Jackson

I picked up a small wood plane at a sale the other day for $3.00. It had Stanley engraved in the cap with red. As I cleaned the rust off around the knob I discovered Stanley #3. Everything fits as well. So wut is this critter?
