Type 5 cap
**Its got a type 5 cutter (1942-1950)
New Haven CT. USA
**One piece yoke
**A mahogany knob and tote.
**Brass knob and tote nuts
**Brass Adjuster knob
**Made in USA cast in base
**And here is what seems a little different. Its got a brass cutter adjuster knob, and brass nuts on the knob and tote. Typical for this time frame? Lets take a poll.
** Right handed depth adjuster nut reappears
Note the difference in the base between the 5 and the type 6.
Here is the type 5 and type 6 #408 side by side. The type 6 is on the left.
Note the type 6 is 1/2” longer.
And yet another example. The frog and lever cap put this #418 in the same era, but as you can see, its a different base.
