9 3/4 Type 1 Tailed Block Plane (PARTS) The cap is nice. The tail is nice, the cutter is a
later replacement that is nice. The front moveable throat looks nice, but
not sure if the threads are going to be right w/ that brass screw in there.
The main body has suffered a near fatal fall at some point and now has a caved in side.
Check the pics of the back side. The tail, cutter and cap are worth the money
as parts, or it can be used as is.

Stanley #9 3/4 Type 1 Tailed Block Plane This type 1 9 3/4
looks pretty nice. The 9 1/2 was first offered in 1872
and changes in the design brought forth the type 2 in 1874. I
believe the front plate is an old replacement. It does not have
the full range of movement one would expect. Tiny flea bites in the throat, the rest is good.
Hard to find.

Stanley # 9 3/4 Block Plane Stanley
introduced the 9 1/2 block plane in 1872 and made the Type 1 for just 2 years
before making major changes to the design. Over the years they made a
number of modifications to the design, and there is a well done and very
detailed type study that has been done on these planes.
distinguishing features are the solid cap, style of the adjustable front and
The rear handle / tail bracket is also a unique design used only on these early models.
While the 9 1/ is one of the most common of all block planes, the first
model or type 1 is one of the rarest planes Stanley made. Very few
appear on the market.

#15 1/2 Tailed Block Plane The collector identified this as a Stanley #15 1/2 but I
am not sure if that is right given the way the throat adjuster is set up in
reverse of Stanley's idea. I would bet it was made by a competitor who
used this set-up as a way around the Stanley patent. That would make it
far rarer than a typical Stanley, which is a pretty hard to find plane in its
own right. There are a couple small chips in the throat area.

9 3/4 Excelsior Style Tailed Block Plane The collector identified this as a type 4. I have
been told it is more likely a type 9 with some swapped parts. I did not
carefully check that, but it sounds right. A prior owner did carve his initials into the side rail as seen
in the pics. A nice early example of Stanley's favorite block plane with the
hard to find tail that i have been told is for a later model.

the verge of being stripped. It gets tight, and then skips a thread

Stanley # 61 Block Plane The type 1 # 61 Low Angle Stanley block plane is just under 6 "
long and does not have a moveable front. The knob looks oversize in this
pic, but i believe it is proper. They date from 1902 or earlier.
The throat is nice. It is typically in demand more as a collector
piece than a user given the non adjustable throat and is a hard to find
little block plane.

Nickel Plated Block Plane (201) It looks like a Stanley 201, but I do not think it
is. The nickel is original, and the plane is old, but the cutter is
unmarked and there is just one cast blade support behind / under the cutter. Probably
offered by Union or Ohio, or some other more obscure maker to compete with the
nickeled Stanley 201 version. Different!! Look at all of
the pics to get a sense of just what we have here.
