    Thanks for providing the chart. Don’t forget that the 5 1/2 switched to a 2 3/8″ iron in 1938.

    I have a Stanley plane – 9.25 in long body and a plane iron 1.75 in wide. I don,t see it referenced in your chart. Is that possible?

    I just bought Stanley rule company Baily plane which is 22″ long. There is some data on the wood block but I can’t decipher it. Is it early model No 7?

      If by wood block you mean the body of the plane, then no, it’s not a No. 7. It’s a transitional plane.

        Thank you for the answer. Just one more question:
        Is there any way to figure the model N0? I can see there words “Stanley rule and level co” and “No …” Something is there but I unable to say what exactly.
        Plane is 22″ long, 3″ wide, iron is 2-11/16″ wide.
        p.s. Yes, by wood block I meant body of the plane.

      I’m not at all familiar with the transitional planes or their model numbers. This site should help you, though. http://www.supertool.com/StanleyBG
