    Good information. Are parts available for Stanley planes? Frog for larger ones as in Jack. Not sure of mdl. #

    At first I thought the wrong date. I was like I’m not in love with one plane, I have many and love them all. Lol.

    Where can I go to get my planes identified? I have one that has no name on it whatsoever and no numbers on it. It was my father-in-laws or perhaps his grandfathers. I also have a Sargent model 414, but they have a few with that number with value from $30 to maybe $1000. I am not sure where to get these appraised.

    I haven’t begun the video yet. I just bought a No4 Stanley Bailey and a No 5 1/2 at Goodwill weigh and pay. I paid $10 for the pair and no broken wood or damage. I hope I can get my money back out of these.

    what’s a kidney shaped hole? LOL

  13. Dee Dee on August 3, 2022 at 11:07 pm

    Should I refinish the plane to increase its value? On ebay I saw planes go for $300+ when refinished. It is a #6, kidney shaped hole , black turning knob. No patent dates. There are only flecks of black paint left on the body . High knob. Just need to know whether refinishing is worth it or will it destroy value.

    A patient of mine gave me a bunch of old tools recently and one of them was a Stanley no 3 smoothing plane and it’s a type 1. Sharp as a razor. Only problem is that the side of the sole (the bulge where the frog attaches) on one side is broken off. Obviously this happened a long time ago. The tote is made up of three different pieces of wood and the middle piece is a different species of wood, so I’m leaving that as it is. Thought others would be interested to know that there are old ones out there, and sometimes they just fall into your lap.

    Here’s a link to the flowchart: http://www.woodcentral.com/bparticles/pdatechart.pdf
    (this would be a good thing to add to the description, wrenchwiki)

    You maybe one day could do a video about type study about Stanley plane carriage makers. Thanks pura vida

  17. Leo Schot on August 3, 2022 at 11:17 pm

    Nice video

  18. Gordon Endersby on August 3, 2022 at 11:19 pm

    Does the flowchart work for British made planes as well or just the from the US?

    Thank you, Mr. Wrench Wiki, for that great pubic service video. Your willingness to educate the masses is a blessing to the next generation of tool collecting enthusiasts.

    Thank you for the information. You have answered a butt load of questions, even more-so with the flow chart. What a useful tool!

    A plane falling onto a floor from bench height will break in half on both sides at the mouth position, often vertically, which is why these need to be brazed to reconnect the two parts together". The damage shown to the mouth is less likely.

    Thanks and I’m checking my inventory as I text.
