Help identify a Stanley plane, possibly a Type 6
This was an emailed question.
I came across your site and was hoping you could help me identify the Type of Stanley plane I have? Note: it didn't have a lateral adjuster when I purchased it.
Thanks for your help
Answer. A type 6 stanley would not haver steel nuts holding the knob and tote on.
Here is a look at some stanley bases https://www.timetestedtools.net/2016/01/27/stanley-bases/
The tote could be a replacement.
It might be a Union? Which is still likely a replacement tote.
What do the nuts/tote screws look like?
Also are the threads the same as stanley?
Thanks for the feedback. The threads are right hand on all screws and definitely steel (magnetic). I sanded the tote and knob as I'm in the process of refurbishing them. Original color was the same as the other plane in the background.
