Antique / Collectible & User Quality
Stanley / Bailey & Bed Rock Bench Planes

Stanley Bed Rock Bench Planes
Sizes 602 - 608

Stanley's Bed Rock planes were the top of the line bench planes that Stanley Rule & Level Co. offered.   Bedrock planes were first introduced around 1898 and production ceased in 1943 with the start of WWII.  Stanley Bedrock Planes are one of the most sought after and highly regarded bench planes ever produced due to their superior quality, top of the line design features, and the super usability traits that they exhibit.

Comparing a Bed Rock plane to the standard line of bench planes Stanley offered is like comparing a Cadillac or Corvette to a regular Chevy or Vega.  Both were made by Chevrolet and both are cars, but what a difference.  Stanley's Bedrock planes had a unique frog design that was milled flat to match the milled bed of the plane.   The standard  line of Stanley planes have cast recesses where wood 'chips were prone to gather with the real possibility of throwing the plane out of adjustment.

After a short period Stanley flattened the side rails of this line of planes to make them look more distinctive from their regular offerings.  First model Bedrocks were numbered 2 thru 8 and only the 3 line Bed Rock Cap and frog design distinguished them from the regular line of bench planes.   Stanley soon changed their numbers to the 600 series to set them apart form the standard line of bench planes.  A few years later they flattened the sides.  Over the years the Bed Rock name on the lever cap changed from a 3 line Bed Rock cap, to a single line Bed Rock, then to a short lived 2 line version.  Finally near the end of the production period Stanley simply went to the Stanley inscribed lever cap used on their regular line of planes.    Below you will find a nice cross section of these Stanley planes.  Enjoy.

Stanley Bed Rock Type 2 # 608 C Corrugated Bottom Jointer PlaneStanley Bed Rock Type 2 # 608 C Corrugated Bottom Jointer Plane This is a Stanley Rule & Level Co. Type 2  Bed Rock No. 8 C (# 608) Jointer Plane. This Stanley 608 C Bed Rock dates from 1898 - 1899. When Stanley first introduced the Bed Rock line of planes they numbered them 2 thru 8 like their typical line of planes. It was not until the type 3 offered in 1900 that they started using the 600 series to number the planes and differentiate them from the regular line of bench planes.

Type 1 & type 2 Bedrocks had the new machined & mated frog design but were numbered with just a single number 2 thru 8 as this one is. The other distinguishing feature of these early type Bed Rocks is that there is a milled out area where a patent date in the casting that was in conflict with a competitors patent was ground out. That date was removed after the plane had been japanned. This is a type 2 as it has just one patent date on the lateral. It has a proper and nice 3 line Bed Rock Cap.

This plane has a rich dark patina. There is no major rust or pitting to speak of. A previous owner scratched his SS # on the side with an electric pen. This would easily lap out if desired. There is at least 80% of the of the japanning. The knob and handle are the premium Rosewood of the era and very nice. The cutter is long, proper and OK. Good throat. Overall it is a very nice plane and good enough for the collection, or will be a fine user.
