Starrett Dating Info Bill, I can’t make out the top rule, but the bottom rule is or more modern. And probably more likely a today rule. Starrett tool dating has been discussed in other threads. Despite what one might find about Starrett dating on other websites, I believe the Roger K Smith study of catalogs is the most correct. Roger Smith is well known for his studies of Stanley plane dates. The catalog dates are the only concrete dates I’ve found, because as discussed in other threads, the change over of logos was not instantaneous for all tools or even one tool in Starrett’s line.

Starrett manufacturing is ‘piece-work’ and old and new parts were intermixed, sometimes for years! Old dies for marking were used past logo change dates until they wore out. Even catalog cuts went unchanged for one or more catalogs. Roger sold me a bunch of early catalogs and they clearly show that Starrett added the “THE” in Indeed, it is not used in catalog 13 and is used in catalog My 13 and 14 catalogs are clear.

I suggest that no matter where else you read about Starrett dates, only the Smith study is accurate.

Most basic wooden planes are inexpensive. If they aren’t seriously cracked or warped and the irons are in good shape, they can usually be cleaned up and put to use.

Fancier ones start to be more expensive. Wooden plow planes originally came with sets of irons in different cutting widths, but most old ones are sold with only a single iron, the rest having gone missing in the mists of time. Good dealers will have sets of irons for sale, but you have to be careful about matching them to the width of the plane mouth.

Return to Hyperkitten Getting started 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 flowchart starts by asking questions about the cast iron bed of your plane. I’ve chosen the bed as a starting point because it has many easily identifiable markings, and it probably wasn’t replaced that often.

Unfortunately, many plane types share the same bed markings, so other features are also used in dating. Some plane parts were frequently replaced by their owners, or are easily separated from the plane, such as irons, cap irons, knobs and totes, and lever caps.

I was sent a message from the supplier before they were shipped and he said that they were made in china but very good product So, they turned up today and aside from a few things out of place, it is a very good caliper, not a geniuine mitutoyo, but a good fake. The plastic casing doesn’t fit the best and the gib adjuster screws are not central to the plastic casing holes.

All 3 had a broken tab on battery cover, apparently another tell tale sign. The certificates had matching serial numbers all 3 were different but the rest of the inspection certificate is a straight copy, from the issue number to the errors in readout at set lengths.

Also, they look uncleaned, as in not a trace of overcleaning which to me can look garish. Just a nice clear semi shiny surface finish similar to what they started out with, and completely readable. One aspect easy to neglect is a rounding over effect on the edges that really makes it harder to see the graduations as clearly.

The rubber erasers work okay sometimes, but leave a surface finish well short of what I’d prefer if there’s more than a spot or 2. I am careful to lay the rule on a flat surface and to hold the sanding block so it lays completely flat on the rule while rubbing.
