Question Stanley Bailey "Made in England" since when??

Hi. I was surfing the net trying to find out how long Stanley has been making planes in England. Does anyone know?

I recently saw a nice Bailey 5-1/2 with the ribs or cross pieces on the tail that was made in England and was wondering how old it might be. Any ideas??

Thank you!

Stanley got into the English market in 1937 when they bought out JA Chapman (Sheffield). But the ribs are a more modern "improvement". I thought there was a type study on the net somewhere that said when they were introduced.

Insert witty signature line here.

I just picked up a #5 that was made in England. Very nice and hefty. Sure as heck can't beat that price either.
