Stanley # 605 Bedrock Plane Early / Late or ??? The tag on this indicates I sold this to the collector in 1991. I remember finding this plane in a junk shop back then for 10.00 and recognizing it as something out of the ordinary. It has round sides and a 3 screw frog. It shouldn't exist according to the type study and expert opinion.
Experts believe it was a flat top model that was rounded by the previous owner. I am not sure, but guess that is right given the sides are lower than a typical early model round side 605, and just right next to a flat top. Grinding the flat sides round seems like a lot of work for just wanting that look though. Like I said before, the fellow who rounded them did not try to capitalize on it, I paid $10.00 for it and sold it to the collector. He was impressed, and intrigued.
What you see is what you get. It is a round side 605 Bedrock w/ the 3 screw frog feature.. It has not been welded or repaired and will make for a great user and conversation piece for all your friends who are into discussing Stanley type studies and features of Stanley Bed Rock Planes. Different.
