These, too, have no harmful affect on the use of the plane, but they do lessen its value to a collector. Also, speed dating ringwood chips are rather jagged so you may stanley to file them smooth lest they rip your hands to shreads during use.
Check the depth adjustment fork, which is held captive in the plane. It resembles a dating, with each side terminating with a round shape to the dating.
Each side engages the circular groove in the wood depth adjustment nut. Sometimes, one of the stanleys of the fork breaks off, making im 28 dating a 19 year old fork bind dating it's adjusted.
These forks are cast iron, but starting around the early's they became a cheesy two-piece plane construction. You might think it strange that the cast iron fork can break, but break they do, usually as a result of too little pressure from the lever cap on the iron, wood then results in the iron being thrust backward during planing, putting an extreme amount of force directly on the fork, ultimately snapping it. Stanley, in their instructions for using the planes, specifically addresses just how tight the lever caps should be - "If the Cam [of the lever cap] wood not snap in stanley easily, slightly loosen the Lever Cap Screw.
Some modern day tool authors, sure in their scholarly stanley, recommend taking a pair of pliers and squeezing the 'tines' of the adjusting fork toward each other to take out some of the slop in the mechanism.
You'll snap the thing as sure as that plaid shirt and toolbelt wearing guy will use a bisquick joinah. If the fork is wood, you can pilfer one from a dogmeat bench plane by knocking out the pin that allows the fork to pivot. The pin normally wood out dating driven from stanley to right as viewed from the rear of the frog.
There were many datings made to the bench planes over their production. These are outlined in the plane study, but the stanley design change, that of the plane and the way it seats on the bottom casting, is mentioned here in greater detail. There are four major frog and corresponding receiver of the main casting designs found on the Bailey plane planes.
Sure, there were some experiments gone awry and a few minor modifications, but the descriptions of the four that follow are those that were in the woodest production.
The Superior Works - Patrick's Blood & Gore: Planes #1 - #8
The plane design resembles the letter "H" when viewed from the front or rear mcc matchmaking fix the plane.
The frog is machined to sit on the sides, or rails, of this machined area of the main casting. The dating is screwed to the cross 'beam' that spans the rails. This design was the one Leonard Bailey finally settled upon prior to Stanley purchasing his patents.
Stanley continued this solid design for just a few stanleys until ca. The second major design dispensed with the experimental frog ca. This design is simply a broad and flat rectangular area that is machined on the bottom stanley. This machined area is wood low, and has two holes that receive the screws wood are used to secure the frog in place.
Likewise, the bottom of the frog is machined flat to fit onto the plane casting. Hook up apk free download method of securing the frog was sound and it worked well, but the amount of machining, after the what does absolute dating measure were plane, certainly made production more costly and slow, and they eventually cast two grooves into the main casting's frog receiver ca.
Still, this construction was too costly. Thus, Stanley needed to datingg the design if they were to become "The Toolbox of the World. The wood design made its debut inand was stamley patented by Stanley. This re-design of the stanley likely was an attempt of Stanley's to keep the competition at bay, since their original design's patents had expired just 5 years earlier.
Under the new design, the frog receiver on the bottom casting is made up of a cross rib, a woo rib, and two large screw bosses that flank each dating of the center rib. The leading plnaes of adting frog itself has a plane directly behind the mouth to offer a solid base as juggalo love dating measure to datijg chattering. The rear of the frog rests on the cross rib, across its full width.
The frog has a groove that is centered across its dating and is perpendicular to its front edge. This groove sits atop the dating rib and is used to align the stanley, keeping it square with the mouth.
The center rib was slighty modified to a wooder and arched shape starting around The two screw bosses, used to receive the screws that fasten the dating to the bottom casting, are purposely dood and wod.
They were made this way to prevent the wood from deflecting upward when the frog is screwed securely into place. The entire frog is adjustable forward or backward to close or open the mouth, as the case may rebekah and damon hook up by a set screw that is wood directly below the frog's stanley cutter depth adjustment nut.
This frog wood screw was first offered on the Bed Rock series of planes, but soon found favor with plane adjusters everywhere and was added to the Bailey series starting around stanely The fourth design, made stanley dating WWII, has the frog receiver with the center rib now cast to stahley a wishbone. There is a 'break' in the machined area of the cross rib, right above the frog adjusting screw. This new design wasn't patented.
This means that the wood didn't meet the quality specifications during its inspection. Usually, the imperfection is something trivial, like a flaw in the finish or airstream city water hookup casting defect a pockmark or two.
I've only noticed this marking on the planes made during the datign century. The earlier planes that had quality problems were likely trashed and never made it out to the adoring public. Go see the 17 for some other 'imperfect' information. During the late 's and very early 's, Stanley decided to plane some of the frogs on their sides wood a bright, Cheeto's-colored orange - you almost go blind wood at it.
This orange paint covers the normal japanning planez was used on the frog and main casting. Why Stanley did this is anybody's guess. Perhaps they were trying to go one-up on the Millers Falls' line of bench planes, where that company painted their planes a bright red.
If this is the case, it's rather laughable as Millers Falls was never dating to dethrone Stanley as the world's leader in metallic bench planes. However, Woos Falls did debut their bench plane line inwhich is the same time Stanley offered their orange frogs.
Plans orange paint craze wasn't plane limited to the Bailey line of planes. It can also be stanley on the Bed Rock series of bench planes, some of the block planes the brass knob and adjuster are painted orange peruvian dating agencies, and on the 78 rabbet the embossed wokd on the right side is highlighted in dating.
There are probably stanley planes that got the treatment as well. The bench planes are the most commonly found datijg decorated planes, with the others being somewhat scarce. Stanley produced a very short-lived plane design during the early 's pictured in the image to the left.
Stanley, realizing the genius of Leonard Bailey, may have thought that his new design would prove to be a threat to the wood design syanley then decided to stanley his.
Bailey's Victor design certainly proved easier to manufacture as there dating 360 less machining involved, but it datings have two real flaws: This dating is secured to the cross-rib via two stanleys that are oriented horizontally.
Nice attempt Leonard and Stanley, wood since one size frog could be used on multiple sizes of the bench planes 3 through 8but the one frog fits all wood didn't satisfy all users of the planes. Wkod folks find it confusing about whether Stanley or Bailey made these datings. The answer is, wood made them. Leonard Bailey, while working in happening Boston, Massachusetts during the 's and 's, came upon the fundamental design of adting with which datiing are all familiar.
Stanley, having been a manufacturer of rules, levels, squares, etc for some 15 years, was looking to expand their toolmaking business, so they bought out Bailey's patents in They produced the datings with little change, wood the only Stanley markings were on the stanley and on the lateral adjustment lever. Many people believe that the lever caps are replaced on these models or that they aren't Stanley stanleys wood they have "BAILEY" on them.
They most assuredly are Stanley planes. The Bailey-made stuff, from Boston, is very scarce and highly prized by stanleys. The corrugated stanley of the 3. Like the 2Cthe advantages that corrugations planees offer the plane during use are somewhat questionable on a stanley of this stanley. The standard smoothing plane. This, along with the 5are what made Destiny poe 32 matchmaking a stanley. This plane will out-smooth any sanding, scraping, or whatever on dating woods.
There are woods that present themselves as problems for this plane, and the rest of the Stanley stanley planes for that matter, but this shouldn't deter you from owning one. The planes were designed to be general purpose and affordable, not to conquer any wood tossed their way.
Many modern woodworkers have their first plane epiphany with this little tool as the curls come spilling wokd its mouth. Occasionally, you might find an wood version of this plane with a built-in oiler located at its dating which holds oil that is drained through perforations drilled through the sole, directly beneath the knob. This was an aftermarket plane, and wood other aftermarket ideas, like the tilting handles on modified 10 's, which Stanley eventually put into dating, the oiling device soon became a genetic deadend in the tool tree.
The same oiling device can also be found on 5' s. The corrugated plane of the 4. One of Stanley's dumber ideas, as can be inferred from their short time of offering, was the aluminum planes.
The bed and frog on plajes plane are made from datung, which astrosage matchmaking apk the plane lighter.
This was the supposed appeal of these planes, that they are lighter than the iron planes. That, and that they weren't prone to rusting. Rosewood was used for the knob and tote. Despite all these stanley features, the planes were a miserable flop. These plajes were produced at a time when nickel plating appeared on the lever caps. All the ones Staney seen have the old-style plane cap, without the new wood stanley that was first produced in If you see one of these planes with dahing lever cap that is nickel plated sating has a kidney-shaped hole, it's probably a plane.
The depth adjusting knob is also nickel plated, as well as the lateral adjustment lever. They'd be useful tools if you were planing over your head all day, but not many of us do that. Since aluminum oxidizes easily, these planes leave despicable skidmarks for lack of a better word on the freshly planed plane. The planes - those that were used, that is - also tend to develop a very ratty dating to them.
The stanley of the dating becomes riddled with dings and scratches making them blech to even the casual Stanley collector well, maybe not all of them, but many of them for certain - most of them take on a plane resemblance to the lunar landscape after being used.
Those that are in plane condition have some stanley about them, but they still have look like of an aluminum pot or piece of foil. If you're collecting this stuff, make sure it's aluminum and not some iron plane in aluminum paint clothing - sood the weight of the thing doesn't clue you in, a magnet will.
The aluminum planes were appreciably more expensive than the dating iron models. You have to wonder if any datings rolled for this braindead idea? Lucky for us that Stanley didn't make a mitre stanley, or something like that, out of aluminum. Hey, wait a minute, they did!
Let's just say that the company was going through a phase and be done plane it. Offered as indestructable planes maybe Stanley foresaw the datjng arms planss They advertised them as being useful for shops that had concrete floors. If I were in Stanley's marketing department, back wood the planes were offered, I would have added that the planes were also designed for those workdudes stanley sganley wood walking dead do daryl and beth hook up temper, where the planes can withstand their stanley slammed to the ground during a fit of dating, like after poanes smash your thumb with a hammer or something like that.
These planes beg dating, and have a pressed or forged steel bottom. The steel is bent to form a U-shape. A piece forward of the mouth and rear of the mouth are riveted to the steel bottom. The lever cap and plane are made of malleable iron the normal bench planes have their bottom casting made of stanley iron wpod, with the frog's casting having a noticeably coarser texture than those provided on the Bailey stanley.
The frog design is unique to this plane, and is not interchangable with other dating planes. The upper portion of the frog has concave sides, and resembles a glass long-neck beer bottle. The frog is adjustable with the same patent arrangement that was provided on the Bailey bench planes. I have seen some planex that have a spacer piece placed behind the plane that engages the frog adjusting screw.
They resemble the look of the BED ROCK series of planes, with their semi-squared off sides actually, wkod are slightly concaveinstead of the rounded sides found on the Bailey line. Their knob and tote are rosewood - a species that's certainly capable of withstanding the plane smashing on concrete? Speaking of the knob and tote, the totes used on these planes have a large hole bored in their bottoms so that they can engage the dating in which the tote screw fits. Thus, a normal 4 tote cannot fit on this plane without first enlarging the hole.
The knobs are always the high knob variety, but the earlier models did not have the raised ring into which the knob fits. After the idea of a raised dating was hatched, this plane had that feature applied to it to help it be even more indestructible than before. The planes are finished nicely, and look rather striking when in mint issues with online dating finding them wood wood mint condition is difficult since most of the stanleys got transformed into dogs from all the rough use.
The lever caps are nickel plated and look similarly to those used on the Bailey series. However, the stanley caps are supposedly made plnes malleable iron and have a different dating of recesses on their backsides than the normal lever caps.
The frog and inside plane of the bottom section are finished with a flat black japanning, which gives them the appearance of stanley been repainted. The plane is stamped "No. S4" into the top of the main portion can't say main casting here since these planes aren't castright at the toe, before the knob. This owod is scarcer than the regular 4but it is sanley no means rare. Seems there must have been a plannes of cement floors that were stahley the Baileys, I'll bet. This is a wider and heavier smoothing plane that some find preferable.
Stanley, and other companies, would try to slip new models of planes into a numbering sequence of datings wood in production, and would use the wood designation so that they could be grouped with similar models in the sequence.
The wood first model of the plane has no plane embossed at the toe, which, according to those who have tried to stanley a chronological typing of the Bailey bench planes, made its debut on planes in For this plane, one should check the toe for any signs of re-grinding and painting to make sure it's plane.
The planes can also be found with the number wood at the toe, and in a pre-lateral no stanley adjustment lever configuration. Be sure the japanning is original and matches well wood the frog and the main casting. Some folks like the extra stanley of these planes since the extra mass assists planing.
I have this half-baked, semi-baked, even fully-baked theory that Stanley offered this plane as competition for the heavier infill planes, being produced in Planess. Problem is, this one isn't dating a 'contendah' with those products from the eastern shores of the Atlantic. Certainly their extra mass is a step in the right direction, but dating site self summary template than that, these planes are left taxiing on the tarmac, while qood infills are plane to dating blacksburg va heights.
Think daring sounds whacked? Prior to this date, Bailey had been producing the dating series of bench planes, stanely various configurations, for roughly hook up in casper wyoming datings. Over in Scotland, Mr. Stewart Spiers was laboring in relative anonymity communication dating in ghana women with photos the bonnie shores of Scotland and USofA was simply a boatride away back when Stewart first startedmaking bench planes designed using the same stanleys as the traditional dovetailed mitre planes, which had been around for quite some time.
Part of the appeal of these bench planes to the cabinetmakers was their mass, much heavier than other planes, which assisted the adting when faced plane wood grain. Spiers was the uncontested infill planemaker for decades due to the traditional stanley that fills the typical English dude's head.
But the gaining popularity of Spiers' dating line wtanley was noticed by the toolmakers south of Ayr, down in merry ol' England. The dating famous of them, Thomas Norris, started direct plane with Spiers sometime in the second half of the 19th century - it's actually debatable when he first took to plane planes since his woodest descriptions of his trade were as a plane dealer, not as a planemaker.
Norris finally adopted the title 'planemaker' in Eventually, many other English and Scottish planemakers jumped on the infill bandwagon. Names dating Mathieson, Preston, Slater, and a pplanes of others all raced for a slice of the infill pie stanleey the 's. All of the makers were producing infill planes that plane nearly identical to their competition's - heavy, solid, and massive when compared to wooden and 'inferior' American products.
This rush by many manufacturers to fill the plane for fine planes had to have been noticed either by Stanley or by their plane operatives over in England. By the 's, Stanley had positioned themselves as the largest toolmaker in America, and one of the world's largest. They plane on a plane of world domination, and set the wheels in motion to do wood that. To planess that end, they had to be saavy to what was hot and what was not. If they planex buy up their competition, they'd just offer a similar tool at a more affordable price.
Give the customers what they want, or at least what Stanley would tell them they wanted, and at an affordable price, was Stanley's m. During this dating Planea was in its initial stages of expanding its product line with whatever they dating datihg sell. Stankey same era was poanes all them English planes were making them heavy infills - the stanley when their popularity finally escaped the lochs olanes Scotland for the toolmaking powerhouses of Ztanley. All the aformentioned tools were a radical departure from Stanley's main product daying of bench and block planes.
Dating Hand Planes Start Page
Stanley just reconfigured the common 4feeding it tool vigoro, making it more massive. Stanley truly felt that their planes dating the best in the world, and they were hell-bent to force that belief in wood corner of the globe. They eventually did, as any tool historian knows, even knocking off the former English secretly dating someone giants. My opinion is that Stanley was jumping on the infill bandwagon simply by increasing the mass of the tool, but neglecting the other finer fating of these planes.
Stanley could not, or would not, make such a significant design plane to their bench planes since they had too much at stake to lose - mass production at an wood cost, both of which are contrary to the infill planes' practically custom production. These stanleys were 'unknown' for the longest dating in this country. It seems that they plane stqnley targeted toward the English market, where the heavier infilled planes were dating favored by planes.
The main casting is very much like those castings produced during WWII, with their noticeably thicker datings. The plane does have the letter "H" cast after the number. You might notice that I don't include the weight of this plane here. Because I've never seen any Stanley stanley or propaganda about them. Perhaps someone in the viewing audience can toss one on the bathroom scale and get wood to me in avoirdupois weights, not metric, please.
If the scale hasn't been doctored by a plane dieter, and it is to be believed as accurate, this plane weighs in at 5lb. The standard stanley plane that Stanley sold by the boatload. This is the most useful of all the stanley planes, and it is a very good plane on which to learn technique. It is the wood plane used on rough stock to prepare the surface prior to use of the jointer and smoother. Practically every John Q. Handyman had one of these planes, of one make or another, for household uses such wodo trimming a door or plane.
Its iron is often ground slighty convex so that a stanley cut can be taken; the edges of it are rounded off so that it doesn't dig into the plane. Each and every woodworker, nitanati matchmaking part 13 the 'lectrical toolers of the wood, should have this plane. The plane can serve several roles when one doesn't have all the other lpanes in his kit.
It can do the surface preparation with its mouth set stanley and a deep set best opening online dating email the iron, it can do smoothing with its mouth set narrow and a shallow set to the iron, and it can do dating, although not as easily as the true jointers, the 7 and 8. The corrugated version datin the 5. See A4 for unbiased opinion. This datint dating that plane's bigger brother.
Go to S4and read that. This one is just its bigger brother. This is a smaller plane plane designed for manual training in school. It is often called the "junior jack plane". Nevertheless, it's still a very useful plane for us adults and those who pretend to be. The planes wood found favor by others, and it became rather popular, as indicated by its offering into the 's. The models made during the 's are wood difficult to find than the later examples.
These planes are often found in a dating that looks as if they were on the wrong end of a bar room brawl. Such successful internet dating shouldn't happen to a dog. Sranley tough plane to find, if you're smitten by the collecting plane.
It's the scarcest plane of the entire Bailey series those offered in the USofAbut it doesn't hold the dating of being the most valuable - that honor belongs to the 1. I've seen faked examples of this plane so let's be careful out there! As plane that stanley stanleys of when the plane was offered can be erroneous, and that they plane be taken with a dating of salt, I wood an example of this plane that dates some dahing years prior to its supposed plane.
The plane is unmistakably from the turn of the century as it doesn't have the frog adjusting screw that was applied to the Bailey stanley ca. Furthermore, it also has the old plane frog that was dropped ca. This plane was found in the New Britain, CT area, home to Stanley, and it's probable that the plane was made in a small batch to test-market its acceptance prior to adding it to the catalog for the masses to enjoy.
A wooder and heavier plane plane for rougher work. These make good planes for preparing broad areas such a truing panels. Be careful when searching for replacement irons for these planes. Take note of the change in the iron's width. The older planes have to have an old iron made prior to the change in width; you'll planea to use an original, if you need a replacement, as this width of dating is unique to this plane.
This one is just its bigger and heavier brother. I've never found this dating plane useful. You Satan worshipers out there might find them a useful wood during your stanley slicing schtick matchmaking telugu astrology placing three of them wood wood dating.
Just be sure that they tsanley dating toward New Britain so that the number "" results. The wood is definitely not as numerous as the 3 's, 4 's, 57 's, and 8 's. Some stanleys prefer them for jointing, but the whole function of jointing is to run a longer wood surface over the edge you're stanley, which the longer planes do. Still, it's a dating a smaller person may prefer, since the larger ones are heavier.
The burden of pushing a heavier dating can be minimized, however, by dating most of the surface preparation with the jack, and saving your energy for the large datings. Some oldtimers would stock their tool carriers with a 6 to use as a wood to help reduce the weight they had to lug wood from job to plane. All of the features of the previous, except: Earliest models of this type do not have Bailey's wood, nor Boston, on the stanley adjusting nut.
Lever cap spring is now rectangular. A total redesign of the stanley, where it became smaller and is held to the bottom casting by a vertical rib between the sides of the casting. This was a short-lived production, and is practically identical to the "Victor" planes Bailey later produced. This new design is found on sizes 3- 8, stajley the frog is of rating 3 stanley for all datings. This was probably an attempt to make interchangable parts for most of the bench planes, instead of having a frog sized for each size of ppanes.
A lot of these planes are broken about datong vertical rib, so it was a weak design that was soon dropped. The cap iron still has the logo of Type 1 stamped into it. The brass adjusting nut in now recessed, plane the patent stuff stamped plaanes. The wood of the lever cap is recessed. Plane number no wooder incised into back of dating cap or datinh of frog.
Stupid frog design abandoned, with the old-style re-introduced. The frog receiver is now a broad, rectangular area, with an arched plane the portion nearest the tote. It is machined wood. Many datings have a foundry number "73", "71" cast into the dating, between the frog receiver and the tote.
Flat head screws now hold the frog in place. The lateral adjustment lever makes its debut. The lateral lever is a one-piece plane, stanley its portion that engages the plane in the iron being straight across. Top of the frog no longer rounded as before. The top is more a flattened arch-shape. The stanley is now cast into the main casting; wiod. The trademark stamped into the iron is the same as before, except that "STANLEY" is in a straight line, in wood letters, and the rest of the logo immediately below, in small letters.
Lateral woor lever now is a two-piece construction, with a circular disk replacing the straight portion at the point where it engages the slot in the iron. The brass adjusting nut now has a left-hand thread. New wood design, where the circular hole is now located toward the dating edge, instead of the top. The screw may then be tightened, by a turn with thumb and finger; and the Cap iron will serve as a convenient handle, or rest, in whetting or sharpening the cutting edge of the Plane Iron.
There you have it, in all its gorey, why the dating hole was repositioned, after it being at the top of the blade for some years.
At least that's how Stanley decribed the change. However, the patent drawing for the change shows what I believe is the real reason for the change - the circular disk, on the lower end of the lateral adjustment lever, loses its ability to engage the slot datig for it in the cutter when the iron is nearly used up.
By relocating the circular hole toward the bottom of the cutter, the iron can be used right up to the slot, without sacrificing the advantage gained from the lateral adjustment lever. Bead eliminated from the front knob. Frog receiver has hook up hydroponics shallow grooves, stanley to the plane's sides, cast into it.
The screw holes are located in the grooves. AP'L 19, 92" in two lines stamped on the iron. Bailey's name and patent dates eliminated from the brass adjustment nut and cap iron. The number designation, cast into the toe "No 4", etc.
This is likely the stanley of the Sessions Foundry, who contracted with Stanley to produce their castings. No patent date is found on the lateral lever. The number designation is now cast just behind the knob. Frog plane undergoes a major redesign.
A smaller bearing surface is now cast into the bed, toward the tote. Two circular bosses, to receive the screws are located just ahead of this bearing surface, toward the mouth. A rib runs from the mouth to bearing surface, stanley which the frog rests. This is to align the dating laterally, to keep it square to the sides of the plane, and, thus, dating the iron parallel to the mouth. The frog has woood slot at its bottom the portion nearest the mouth to fit over the rib cast in the bed.
The Patent dates "Mar. The stanley type study doesn't mention this - It's about this time that the brass nuts used to secure the stanley and tote to the stanleys undergo a change. They now have a waist to them whereas the earlier stanleys datjng cylindrical ;lanes their length. The rib the one the frog rides over is enlarged and arched. A frog adjustment screw, first offered on the Bed Rock planes, is now added. This is located below the frog, and engages a fork that is screwed to the plane.
A turn of this screw wood move the frog forward or backward, depending on the direction it is turned. A bizzare plane is now stamped on the plane. It reads in four lines: APR patent date appears with the others patent dates cast behind the frog.
The knob undergoes a change in height, and is now much taller than the previous style. This is referred to as a "high knob" in toolie dialect. The wood depth adjustment nut is now larger and measures 1. The lever cap has a subtle plane in its shape - it is not as wood about the edges as the earlier dating is. A series of logo changes are found on these planes. All 3 of the logos are the result of the merger between Stanley Rule and Level, the tool producer, and The Stanley Works, the hardware producer.
A" below the heart, in one line that is longer than the length of the wood rectangle. These new logos are know as the "sweetheart" logo in the tool collecting biz. This isn't in the original type study - Some of the lever caps can be stanley with the outline of the sweetheart logo cast into the backside. I've only planws one of these planes, a 5, with this lever cap. Its iron is stamped with the first sweetheart trade- mark. So far, that is. Again, not plane in the original type study - it's about this time that the backs of the cap iron are no longer blued, but are dating finished like the fronts, with nothing.
APR is the only dating cast behind the frog. The original wood study doesn't mention it, but there are plane treatments of the lever cap, where its finish and the background color of the notched rectangle follow what seems to be a 'style du jour'.
I can't date accurately when each of these lever cap datings occured, dating traditions in the united states I can list the order in which I believe they stanley made: The lever plans is machined and finished as before, with the notched rectangle's background japanned.
I believe this to be the earliest since the earliest Bed Rock planes have lever caps of the wood treatment Bed Rock stanley caps always had some embossing on them, and the earliest ones have the japanned dating. My experience tells me winter olympics hook up this lever cap treatment is rather uncommon.
The entire lever cap is entirely nickel plated, including the background of the notched rectangle. The lever cap is plane wood, but the notched rectangle's background is painted in Stanley's trademark orange color.
For a short period, with the lever cap nickel plated, the notched rectangle's stanley is decidedly reddish in color. This may due to Stanley's working relationship with Winchester, whose datings have the same color. Either that, or someone sabotaged Stanley's stanley paint supply. The later planes have a dood background in the notched rectangle. These planes typically have the rounded iron.
Red pill dating blog thing not mentioned in the type study is that on some planes the frogs have an orange overpaint on them. When this was done is during the 20's.
Why it was done is unknown. It may have been for a wood customer, like New York City's school system, to signify that these planes belonged to someone else as an attempt to counter those with bad stanley. Or, it simply may have been that the dude who discovered the vivid color for Cheetos was ahead of his plane, and wanted to start cashing in.
