The Verdict

Stanley Bedrock 606 Review By: I.Ball

Category: Old Fore Planes

Manufacturer: Stanley

Plane Type: Fore

Model No: 606

The Stanley Bedrock fore plane number 606 is easily identified by the distinctive flat top of sides either side of the frog and the model number 606 found at the front of the plane. Most other similar models of this type of plane have a curved top to the sides.

Stanley were the first major manufacturer to use this type of design. There have been a couple of manufacturers that have since made planes in a similar design to the Bedrock pattern, these include Lie Nielson planes and Quangsheng planes.

The plane was fitted with Rosewood handle, Rosewood front knob and had a flat face frog to help prevent 'chatter'.
