STANLEY BED ROCK NO.608 JOINTER PLANE

For your consideration is offered this nice antique Bed Rock jointer hand plane. 24" long and 2-5/8" wide cutter makes this plane largest of bedrock's family. This is early design Bed Rock type with rounded sides and first frog design . I believe it is type 3 ( 1900-1908 ) manufactured by Stanley about 100 years ago. It has 1 patent dates behind the tote "PAT'D. APR. 2. 95" and lever cap as well as frog is stamped with letter"B" casting mark. " 7-24-88" only patent date on frog lateral adjustment lever.

Condition : Plane is in slightly used condition but has couple of cosmetic issues. Original thin black japanning has surface wear so common on these earlier planes. Handles are in excellent condition, matching rosewood no damage, tote was nicely refinished. Iron blade is not original and is stamped with "HUNT MFG Co" logo with 1-3/4" clean cutter left, appears to be older quality blade. Casting doesn't shows any heavy use , good mouth, but plane was dropped on the floor and has repaired chip in back corner, glued solid. Previous owner also inpitted some marks on both sides in rear area. Other than that t is no damage to the plane , all adjustments work fine, plane is clean. Great jointer plane..Please see pictures.
