The vendor had a sticker on it mentioning the date of 1907 A cursory look over, the frog surface, the dates of patents on it, no frog screw adj, low knob etc, all pointed toward the same vintage, so I did not questioned it, I just quickly look up where 1907 falls in the Type study: Type 9 1902-07 and proclaimed it earlier in a previous post.Now lets see if the seller and I still agree when looking closer.

The frog has a slot at its bottom (the portion nearest the mouth) to fit over the rib cast in the bed.I've converted some of the plane dating information found in Patrick Leach's Plane Type Study into an easy-to-use hypertext flowchart.Hopefully by answering a few questions about your plane you can determine which type it is.The vast majority of Type category pretty well all start with a sentence like: All the features of the previous, except: That means we have to look back in order to see what else to look for.I first quickly look for a major feature changes like the Frog screw adjustment (Type 10), First lateral lever (Type 5), Height of front knob, Frog receiver changes etc.
