    It’s worth to mention that these online identifying charts/tools are mostly based on type studies done specifically on the no.4 size Bailey plane. Other sizes will often have variations that would make these charts/tools just plain wrong. And they are based on the Stanley Bailey planes "Made in USA" – The Bailey style planes "Made in England/Canada/Australia", even though have several similarities, cannot be correctly "typed" using these charts/tools.

    You’ll need to keep in mind that Stanley built a LOT of parts over the years and you may actually find that a particular plane is not actually the type you think it is, based on the charts. There’s a lot of examples where they used mixed parts from different types

    It’s called a hand plane.
