    All,

    Recently a hand plane was given to me. It is the exact size and shape as my early stanley #4. However, there is no raised rib at the front, no patent dates, lateral adjustment is the fishtail (bent metal) and a corrugated bottom.

    If I date it using the site it is made before 1898 when corrugated soles where first made by Stanley. Also, the totes are not rosewood and look more like mahogany. The blade is “Stanley Rule &Co.”, the frog and cap iron look to be Stanley as well. The only marking is  a “4” under the tote.

    Any ideas?

      Look up the aspect of turning in which you are most interested, such as bowl turning, spindle turning, using the skew, sharpening wood lathe tools, etc. There is a tremendous amount of content and regular craftsmen with regular videos.
