So I posted about this #4 siegley a bit ago.I got john f. rumpf's book and found the plane is a type 5.The handles were painted black.The books type study didnt say anything about painted beech handles.So I sanded them down(to repair cracks) and found a faded checkerd pattern on the tote you can barelly make it out.It seems someone has painted the tote and knob to hide the wood putty.For some reason I took a magnet to the tote and of course it had a pull so a nail or somehting is in the tote.I want to bring this plane back to the shape it desrves to be in.It has 5% jappening left.So I am blasting it and putting engine enamal on it,it looks alot like the OE jappening.Iam leaving the cheeks alone with a light cleaning to keep the age look.Someone also cleaned parts of the cheeks to clean metal.So I would like to get a tote or tote and knob.That is checkerd.I have a 605 bedrock and #5 look at pics no cracks on them.I would like to trade for them for the knob and tote.if you only have the tote thats fine pick one plane.the bedrock doesnt come with the pins and screws I dont have them or the tote or knob for anyof them.thanks for looking I really hope someone has soemthing

You should try making your own tote.

Adding the checkered pattern will be a challenge. This was likely a single metal stamp.

If you send me the old knob I will turn one in walnut for you.

Take the stanley version on offer, their almost dead ringers for the Siegley's, and you can't get a Hahn earlier than 1901.
So the stanley is just as good.

Now you've got the book you can really get going at the flea markets.

Living in Australia and collecting Siegley's can be problematic the real Siegley planes were never sold down here, so I'm a bit envious
that you have the chance to find them at weekend markets.

Still if you pay the postage you can build up a fair collection.

These are my #2 Adjustables.

Have fun mate.

The stanley tote and knob should fit your Siegley, but if you wont to check, get jjboozel to measure the base of the stanley tote and the position of the screw holes.

With the #2 Adjustable's one of my planes you already know, the type 4 Adjustable sitting on the chestnut box to the left in the photo. Is the actual plane from the front cover of John's book.

But the plane sitting on the draw of the chest, which is a second version of the type 4 is not listed in the book.

Another version the the #2 is the one below, it's tote is secured to the frame in a way that is not listed in any type studies.

John's book is very very good, but like all type studies thay become out dated as more planes are found.

Which is great for you, there is very little known about Jacob Siegley and his planes in real terms. So when your out at the flea markets there is a real chance of finding something unknown.

It's the exact plane, I got it from John a little while ago.
It's had a clean and looks a treat!
The Siegley #2's arn't to bad price wise, you can get some of the later ones on Ebay for under $100, so at a market who nows!
As for the one from the cover of the book, "it cost".

No problem mate glad to help, I'm thinking I might do a tread on the #2. It probably wont interst that many, but it would be nice to get more info on the net!
I like Stanley planes I've a ton of them, but the Siegley is far less known and not so run of the mill.

Thats why i like them they are differnt,but still a well made plane I allways wanted to get into differnt patented plane designs like these.most other plane makers just took leornard baileys patents.I allways liked things that are not common.Thats why I like the bedrocks to.I would be interested in a thread about the #2's and plus you might turn some people on to them.I reed your thread about the screw theory, I just dont have knowledge on the history of these plane makers.But I think you would school a few people, man.
