Any of you gents know a possible maker and date for this No5. I also have a No4 with a corrugated sole. They must be fairly old as they were my grandfather and he retired as a shipwright / boat builder in the late 60's.



Hope this picture inserting lark works.

It seems a Stanley G5 Gage plane. They offered this line for about 20 years before WWII.

Ciao

Thanks
The dates seem right, as he was born in 1901 and would have finished his apprenticeship in about 1920. So he could have bought then or it was bought by my greatgrandfather also a shipwright. And he inherited just like myself.
