Stanley bedrock plane dating
He doesn't do this full time, and he doesn't have a lot of the more scarce stuff that Pat has, though.As I mentioned in another post, Tom took good care of me when I needed a bunch of Handyman grade user jack and block planes for my high school shop.
Some were showered with attention by their former owners, others suffered the worst possible abuse.
If they send it and you don't like it, send it back, no problem. I may be now on the lookout for a Keen Kutter (single K) and Bedrock ...
It seems as they are both great hand planes but as I have stated, I plan to USE mine.
I don't mind buying a plane that has parts which have been replaced as long as I know what I am looking at.
I perfer the bedrock series but there is little difference between a standard bailey pattern plane.
