Stanley 144 Review By: I.Ball

Manufacturer: Stanley

Plane Type: Corner Rounding

Model No: 144

The Stanley Corner Rounding plane number 144 has a curved corner profile similar to a bead plane which has been cut in half, it is also similar to a wooden snipe bill plane.

The Stanley 144 planes were designed to be ideal for rounding corners/edges. A typical function being the rounding of shelf corners/edges.

This plane was made in three sizes: 1/4" (6mm), 3/8" (10mm) and 1/2" (13mm).

The blade is secured in place with the use of a small holding screw.

The plane body has two oblong holes cut through the body; it has a large oblong hole between the rear end and blade, it also has a slightly smaller oblong hole between the front end and blade.

These planes were made from cast iron and finished with the usual Stanley black japanned coating.
