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.
Stanley 604 1/2 Bedrock Plane
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. 

The Stanley Rule and Level Company spent a lot of time and effort developing a market, and filling the needs and demands of early Stanley # 18 Excelsior Model Block Plane 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.
