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

 

Thank You,

Schean




 

 

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.
