Boston Bailey No.5 Jack Plane
c.1867Type 1 ~ EXTREMELY RARE & VG+  ~ $379.95
wpe1.jpg (1025 bytes)   Leonard Bailey invented and manufactured the first models of what has become, through evolution, the hallmark of the Stanley's primary product line of carpenter planes through the years. Bailey sold his plane business in 1869 to Stanley Rule & Level Co.and the name BAILEY first appeared on the front of the bed casting in 1902, Type 9. This earliest No.5 Plane shows that except for mechanical improvements, the Bailey bench plane has stayed true to its form over a period of 100+ years. This plane as pictured, is missing the banjo spring lever and double iron. Otherwise it is complete with original parts, including the handle (minor early repair to to top), knob (minor chipping at base & dents on top), frog marked (BOSTON- BAILEY.....& CO..PATENTED..AUG.31.1858 ..AUG.6.1867) brass adjustment nut, knurling perfect.  Bed & frog have 98%+ original japanning, throat not cracked, chipped or enlarged and some very minor speckling/pitting and scratches on the sides and bottom. Incised "5" on handle receiver casting.
