I've been trying to identify and catalog my planes.  I have come across a real nice block plane from Stanley but, I'm not sure what it is.  At first I thought it was a 9 1/2 or maybe a 9 1/4 or even a 60 1/2.  But, none of the dimensions are coming up correct.  For one thing, it doesn't have "Stanley" on the front plate, secondly it measures 6 3/8" long.  It has all the other markings to be a Stanley and as far as I can figure, it is a circa 1936 product.  Can anyone help?

If I'm not mistaken, looks like a Stanley 9 1/2 type 16 or 17 Circa 1908-19.
The blade logo dates from there and they didn't start with the Stanley logo on the front until 1920 on. I don't know about the dimensions. But after a long run they sometimes vary.
Most likely a late type 17.

Thanks Tipups, i appreciate the info.  By the way, Where does the "type" information come from?  I'm aware of the type info on hand planes in the "hyperkitten" website but I haven't found type info for block planes.  Again Thanks.

John Walter publishes a very comprehensive price guide on Stanley tools.
There are several type studies  published by various authors included within.
Scarce and expensive book though.

He may be publishing a new one. I say "may" because the website is updated about 3 times a year with "just a few more weeks" that's been going on for a few years.

Thanks Don and Tipups, I appreciate all your information regarding my question(s).  It's more than I could have ever asked for.  It just cements my opinion about this web site.  I love it.  I'm sure I'll be back with more questions and will be reading more on here in the future.  Happy Holidays.
