Note: The value of Stanley Bedrock planes has remained pretty stable over the years.  Prices rose when Walters price guides first came out, demand and interest were high, and then fell somewhat about the time of 9 - 1 -11, the following recession, and leveled off after that. That happened with a lot of antique tools & other collectibles. Condition is really the most critical aspect in relation to value.  Most Stanley #602's sell in a range from 500 - 1200 depending on condition and whether or not corrugated.

Stanley Bedrock # 605 1/4  Junior Jack PlaneStanley Bedrock # 605 1/4  Junior Jack Plane The 605 1/4 Junior Jack Plane is one of the hardest to find of all the different size Bedrock planes.  They were only made for 18 years beginning in 1925.  So, this is proper with the straight slot Stanley cap as by that time Stanley had dropped the bedrock marked caps on these planes.   Bedrocks were the Cadillac series of the Stanley line of bench planes and there is no finer or more popular woodworking plane made.

The japanning is approx. 90%.  A fine example.  Nice enough for inclusion in the collection.

Good +  . . . . . $395.00     HOLD!!





Stanley Bed Rock # 605 1/4 Junior Jack PlaneStanley Bed Rock # 605 1/4 Junior Jack Plane    This is one of the hardest Stanley Bedrock planes to find.  It ranks right up there with the 602 & 604 1/2 and is probably even scarcer given its shorter production period. Stanley bedrocks were first introduced in the late 1890's and had round sides but a very unique frog design that the standard Stanley line of planes did not have.  After a short period they flattened the side rails as this one has.  Over the years the name on the cap changed from a 3 line cap, to a single line Bedrock, then to a 2 line one and finally near the end of the production period simply went to the Stanley inscribed cap as this one has.  Stanley stopped making Bedrocks with the beginning or WWII and this dates from right around that time. 

This example is in collector condition and still retains nearly all of its original shiny black japanned finish.  The wood is nice and much nicer than the glare in the pictures shows.  The Stanley in a single line on the cap is proper as they only offered this plane after they had dropped the Bed Rock marked cap.  A super piece in super condition.  .

Stanley # 605 1/4 Junior Jack PlaneStanley # 605 1/4 Junior Jack Plane   The 605 1/4 bedrock plane is one of the hardest to find Stanley Bedrock planes. It ranks right up there with the 602 & 604 1/2 and is probably even scarcer given its shorter production period from 1925 to 1943.  This example is in collector condition and still retains nearly all of its original shiny black japanned finish. The sides and sole are rust and pit free and look good.  The Rosewood handle is nice with remains of a decal.  All 605 1/4's carry the Stanley cap as none were made during the period that the caps were marked Bedrock.  Stanley stopped making Bedrocks altogether with the beginning of WWII and this dates from right around that time. A super piece in super condition.

Stanley # 605 1/2 Extra Large Jack PlaneStanley # 605 1/2 Extra Large Jack Plane   This is a nice 605 1/2 Type 5 / 6 Bedrock smooth plane.  Bob Kaune's type study of Bedrock Planes indicates this type was made for just one year in 1911, but this has a later type 6 cutter in it.   It has the proper 2 line Bedrock cap, flat sides, and tall front knob of a type 5.

This plane has approx 80% of its original japanning.  The sides and sole are rust and pit free and look good.  The Rosewood handle & knob are proper and very nice.  A workhorse ready to go back to work.

Stanley # 6 (606) Type 1 Bedrock Fore PlaneStanley # 6 (606) Type 1 Bedrock Fore Plane Stanley introduced the Bedrock line of planes in 1898.  The outward appearance of the first ones was near identical to the standard looking line of Stanley bench planes.  The cap was different, and marked with the new, distinctive 3 line Bedrock info. There was a single frog adjusting screw behind the frog that standard issue Stanley Bench planes did not have at this time, and that was about it for differences.  Later they flattened the sides, and added pins and 2 additional screws to the frog design to change the look and action.

The earliest type Bedrock planes was marked #6 and not 606.  This was the same for all sizes 2 thru 8. . Also at the tail, there is a ground out area where Stanley removed a patent date that was in conflict with somebody else's patent.  This type 1 Bedrock plane was only offered for a couple of years, and is quite scarce.  In order to fully understand and appreciate the above info one must see and study the type study put out by Bob Kaune. 

The condition is very nice noting that the top of the rear tote has chipped away.  A very hard to find plane, and the beginning of an era!!

Stanley # 607 Bed Rock Jointer PlaneStanley # 607 Bed Rock Jointer Plane   This Stanley Berdock 7 (607)is a Type 1/ 2 dating from 1998 - 1899 only.   The japanning has been enhanced, and the Rosewood handle is a later replacement from a slightly later era.  Other than that this is a very nice plane. 

A little note here about the collector and Bed Rocks.  When he first started buying Stanley and Bedrocks, neither Walters book or Kaune's type study were available.  He was winging it.  He made himself notes documenting the differences and similarities to other Bedrocks he was buying.  He knew it was a bedrock just marked 7, but the rest was a mystery to him.  After a while, and after type studies, he tried to buy one of every type.  He would have done it, but simply ran out of time.

Side Note: I remember the first type 1 Bedrock I ran into 35 or so years ago, also before the type studies. I needed a Bedrock cap and was trying to buy the cap for $5.00 instead of buying the whole plane for $10.00.  Dumb and dumber.  The good old days.
