Type 17      1942-1945    

You will find a lot of variations in type 17’s. Stanley was using whatever they could find. You will find steel, rubber and even the occasional brass adjusters, you’ll find tote bolts with and without the brass nuts, hardwood knobs and totes, and even some painted rosewood on one or the other (knob or tote). Some will have the frog adjustment screw, some will not.

All features of TYPE 16 except:
* Handles and knobs are of hardwood with dark rosewood stain.
* Wartime castings are noticeably heavier with thicker sides.
*Adj. nuts may be a small dia. of steel or large dia. of hard rubber.
(Sequence not known.)
* Some specimens of this period have been observed without frog adj. screw or kidney-shaped hole in lever cap.

** Heavier, thicker castings
**High front knob
** Raised ring cast in bed at toe
**Rubber or Steel cutter adjustment knob
   **Plane Size Cast in Toe in front of the knob
**”Bailey” Cast in Toe behind the knob
**”Made In USA” Cast behind frog
**Left handed depth adjuster nut
** Hardwood knob and tote instead of Rosewood
**Large depth adjuster nut (1 1/4”)
**Kidney shaped hole in lever cap
**Stanley logo on the lever cap
**Smaller sizes have rib at heel, #5 and larger will have a rib at toe and heel
**Frog adjustment screw on some (some were made without this feature in this type)
**Just “STANLEY” On Lateral Adjuster
**Ogee shaped frog
**Note “Made In USA” may be further back (behind tote) on longer sizes

**Check all listed, but telling signs of a type 17 is a steel or rubber depth adjuster and no frog
