Now that is interesting!.
It looks pretty much right, there's no real signs of it being got at.
Being a type 5 the handle/tote would've rested on a cast seat.
But with the way the body of the plane has been made the seat and the handle would just hang out the back with no support.
I spend a lot of time looking at Siegley's and I've not seen that before.
Very interesting!!!

I'd suggest if you restore the plane take your time, do your research and put it back together as original as possible.
She's a little beaut!.

Let me know if there's anymore info I can help with.

That's pretty cool, never thought I'd run across something like this just out of the blue. Thanks for the info. I've never done a restore like this. I have 6 planes that I consider for normal use and my "restoration" of them just consisted of cleaning up, flattening the sole and sharpening the iron to use. I'm pretty new to woodworking so it might be beyond my skilll level right now. I think I might hold off until I get more experience under my belt.

Siegley No. 12 type 4

I need a bit of help from anyone that might own a Siegley No.12 . I own a type 4 but without the original blade. I have been searching high and low for a replacement and have decided that if I can not locate one that I would go ahead and machine one. If someone could post the dimensions (thickness, length) or even a sketch showing the dimensions and the slot locations I would be quick to machine one. Even a later type with the lateral would work for a drawing as the only difference as far as I know was the addition of the slot. Any help would be appreciated. An actual iron would be even more appreciated and $$$ will be gladly paid.

Hey Guy's, not sure if this thread is still active but if it is I thought you might be interested in this plane I just got.
