There is a stanley #4 hand plane I am looking at buying but I can't determine its type. I checked the Plane Dating Flowchart and it does not help.
- it has not patent dates
- there is a raised ring cast for the receiver knob
- it is not painted blue
- only the heel has a raised, broad, flat rib casting and not the toe
If there is someone who really knows the old Stanley hand planes and who could determine what type it is I would really appreciate it ... thanks!
