STANLEY #25 Transitional Type 14 (MY #25-081017-6)

STANLEY  #25 Block plane 9 1/2″L, 1 3/4″W, 2 1/2lbs, 1870-1923.

Note the charred section of the sole, and the piece that engages the adjustment yoke (similar to the chip breaker on a normal plane) is fabricated.

Here is a note from supertool.com on this plane “It is a block plane technically, since its cutter is bevel side up. Its cutter is bedded at 35 degrees, which is very steep for a plane of its function. So why is it so steep? To allow the plane to use the Bailey cutter depth adjustment feature on a wood bottom plane – there simply isn’t enough room for these features if the cutter were put at a lower pitch.”

I have not tuned this plane for use. When it works as well as this one seems to, I typically just use it.
