None at all.
A lot of people still think the planes made by the Siegley Tool Company were made by him, when in fact they were made by Stanley.
Siegley sold the business name and the rights to his patents to Stanley in 1901.
Those were made by Stanley between 1902 and 1928(?) I believe. "STS" stands for "Stanley-Thick-Siegley". The planes that were made by Siegley in Wilkes Barre used a much different frog, iron, and lateral adj mechanism that were covered by Siegley's patents. Stanley copied these on their first run of Siegley planes (after they bought the patent rights in 1901), then switched over to normal Stanley parts.houblon said:I have two transitional Siegleys (26'' and 15'') with STS iron, but otherwise look just like Stanley No. 32 and 26 without any markings.
Did Stanley also make the STS irons for the transitional planes?
Or could that be pre-Stanley planes?
