Stanley Type 4 # 1 Smooth PlaneStanley Type 4 / 5 # 1 Smooth Plane   This early Stanley #1 smooth plane is in fine restored condition. It has been lapped and had a new japanned coating applied and looks great. The mating surface for the frog is flat across the entire width, the frog to body design used between 1874 & 1888 making this plane a type 4 or 5.  On type 1 & 2's it is a I shape.  On types 6 and later it is flat with 2 groove milled into it.  It has a nice full length Pat. 92 cutter. Note the beaded front knob, and the beautiful proper smaller profile, more curved than later examples, rosewood handle.  There is no rust or pitting on the body and sole.  The throat is good.  A nice example of an early Stanley #1, the most popular collectible plane out there.  It will be the highlight of any Stanley plane or antique tool collection.

Stanley # 1 Smooth PlaneStanley # 1 Sweetheart Era Smooth Plane   This Stanley #1 smooth plane is in fine overall condition. It is all original and has had nothing done to it beyond a lite clean.  The  Sweetheart Logo cutter is designated as AA, is full length and just lightly stained.  That AA Sweetheart logo dates this plane from 1923 - 1935.

The lever cap has no pitting or rust and is very nice.  The throat is perfect.  The rosewood handle and knob are nice noting one tiny flea bite I have shown in the pics.  A super nice example that will be the highlight of any Stanley plane or tool collection.

The Stanley marked lever cap is proper and has no pitting or rust and is very nice.  The throat is perfect.  The rosewood handle is nice.   A super nice example that will be the highlight of any Stanley plane or antique tool collection.

Stanley Gage G3 C Corrugated Bottom Smooth PlaneStanley Gage G 3 C Corrugated Bottom Smooth Plane Stanley introduced this line of metal bodied planes after buying out the Gage Tool Co of Vineland NJ in about 1919.  They were meant to compete with the line of planes known as Auto Sets that Sargent was putting onto the market.  Given the G3 Designation, and the patent info cast into the bed, this would be considered a ype 3 dating from the 1930's.  They were never a great success with the user crowd of the day given you could buy a Bedrock for about the same money.   Overall nice condition.

Stanley S4 Steel Smooth PlaneStanley S4 Steel Smooth Plane Stanley first started offering this model plane in 1926, and ended production with the beginning of WWII in 1941.  Meant for use in locals such as schools or manual training classes where damage was likely to occur if dropped as the steel sides would not crack or break.   As is typical there is not much paint left.  Front knob looks to be a replacement, and there is a bit of loss to the top of the rear handle.  The rest is OK.
