Planes made by Stanley 1907-1909

Distinguishing Features (changes from previous type in bold)

  • No patent date is found on the lateral lever.
  • A frog adjustment screw, first offered on the Bed Rock planes, is now added. This is located below the frog, and engages a fork that is screwed to the frog. A turn of this screw will move the frog forward or backward, depending on the direction it is turned.
  • A bizarre logo is now stamped on the iron. It reads (in four lines): “STANLEY” “RULE & LEVEL CO.” “NEW BRITAIN CONN.” “U.S.A.”.
  • Rosewood knob is shaped like a hot air balloon.
  • The back of the lever cap is recessed.
  • Flat head screws now hold the frog in place.
  • The number designation, cast into the toe (“No 4”, etc.)
  • The brass adjusting nut now has a left-hand thread.
  • “BAILEY” now cast into to toe, as homage to the inventor of Stanley’s cash cow. The number designation is now cast just behind the knob.
  • The rib (the one the frog rides over) is enlarged and arched.
  • The Patent dates “Mar.-25-02” “Aug.-19-02” are cast into the bed, immediately behind the frog.
  • The brass nuts used to secure the knob and tote to the rods have a waist to them whereas the earlier ones are cylindrical over their length.
  • All of the features of the previous, except:
  • The rib (the one the frog rides over) is enlarged and arched.
