Antique & Vintage Collectible
Stanley Rule & Level Co. Woodworking Planes

A Brief History

The Stanley Rule and Level company was formed in the late 1850's and began their business producing a line of folding rules and general Stanley # 18 Excelsior Model Block Plane hardware in New Britain Conn. Levels came next, and a few years later they got into the woodworking plane  business producing a line of metal bodied planes utilizing Leonard Baileys Patents and designs for metal bodied bench planes and scrapers.

Stanley's association with Leonard Bailey had a rocky history and that story is detailed in Roger Smiths books on the history and development of Patented Transitional and Metallic Planes in America Vol. 1 & 2. They are worthwhile reads and must have reference books for plane and tool collectors.

After Stanley's initial success with Leonard Bailey's patents and the acceptance of metal bodied planes by America's working craftsmen Stanley added new designs and innovative models to their line of metal bodied woodworking planes. Many different rabbet planes, dado planes, compass planes and other specialty woodworking planes, in addition to their line of standard bench planes, were introduced and produced. These designs have famous names like the Miller's Patent, or the Schrade name associated with them, as well as other lesser known inventors patents and ideas that Stanley bought and utilized in their plane and tool designs. Stanley 604 1/2 Bedrock Plane

The Stanley Rule and Level Company spent a lot of time and effort developing a market, and filling the need or demand of early craftspeople wanting top quality tools. Stanley woodworking planes were designed for use in a wide range of applications in many different trades besides those typically associated with woodworking or cabinetry. They produced specialty planes aimed at cabinet makers, patternmakers, butchers, electricians, and more to fill these differing needs.

Antique woodworking planes, including some rare and unusual patented planes by other makers, can be found my other tool pages. Please visit those pages by clicking the links found in the left hand column. I attempt to grade my tools conservatively, and will tell you about defects or major alterations such as replaced parts or repaints which in general I try not to carry. If you have any questions about individual pieces that I have for sale feel free to ask.

John Walters Antique & Collectible Stanley Tools Guide to Identity and Value

Here is a very nice condition hardbound copy Of John Walters legendary work on Stanley Tools & Planes. It was last published in 1996 and is long out of print. It is still the go to guide for type studies & info as well as price guidance. While some of the prices are a bit out of date there is a wealth of information including many type studies that are invaluable. This copy is numbered and signed by the author. The dust jacket is a bit sun faded from the shelf it sat on. It saw very little use.

John Walters - 1990 Edition
Antique & Collectible Stanley Tools
Guide to Identity and Value

John Walter Stanley Tool Guide

Here is the 1990 first edition of John Walters' work in softcover. It contains most of the same important info and type studies as the 1996 edition. In general the prices assigned are approx. 25 - 50 % less than the 1996 edition values. Some are relevant, some not. It is the general info and relative values that is important even today. Binding is OK, but fragile. These early editions tend to come apart at the spline when used a lot.
