[Stanley Bailey No. 28 transitional fore plane]

Description: Stanley Bailey No. 28 transitional fore plane. Has a beech wood stock with what looks similar to an iron plane screwed to the top. The front of the iron setting starts 5.2 cm from the face/sole and ends 6.2 cm before the heel. Between the iron and wood is a thin wooden board that has been cut into the shape of the iron piece. At the front of the iron is a mushroom shaped knob which is screwed on. The iron is not very wide here but gets wider towards the center where it takes on a rectangular shape. There is now a hole in the wood stock that is lined with iron. The front is straight but the back slopes upward so that the hole at the bottom is .7 cm X 6 cm and the top is 7.5 cm X 6 cm. Within this hole, from the back forward, is the frog, cutter, basic iron and lever cap. The lever cap has a diamond texture on the front. The frog has an adjustment screw. At this point the iron piece once again gets thinner but longer than the front. ON top of the iron is a cross between an L and 2-shaped handle with part of the very top broken off and two nails sticking out. There is a screw in the top of the handle. There is another screw in the very back of the entire iron piece.

Bench Plane.

Description: Patent for a new and improved bench plane. This design "consists in a stirrup pivoted to the sides of the plane in such a manner that the traverse piece of the stirrup passes through a transverse groove in the under surface of the plane, this groove increasing in height toward the rear of the plane, so that when the plane is drawn backward it will be slightly raised by this stirrup, so that the cutting-edge of the plane-iron cannot slide on the board being planed" (lines 10-19).
