Craigslist Find for Sept Part 1 - Bedrock 605

This is one of 2 planes found off of Craigslist.

The first one is a Stanley Bedrock 605.

The sole measures 13 15/16 inches at the longest point and had a width of 2 7/16 inches. The blade is 2 inches wide. It has a stainless cap iron.

The feature that I found interesting is how the frog is attached to the sole. Most of the Stanley planes that I have seen have a pair of screws on top of the frog to attach it to the sole. This one has a pair of studs in place of those screws and screws on the back side of the frog that screw into the studs.

The second plane purchased is a complete unknown.

I measures 9 3/8 inches long by 2 9/16 wide. It has a 2 inch wide blade and the brass adjustment screw is 3/4 inches in diameter.

These are both before pictures. I will be cleaning and tuning them up.
