Stanley 6C Plane Review By: I.Ball

Category: Old Fore Planes

Manufacturer: Stanley

Plane Type: Fore

Model No: 6C


           

The Stanley fore plane number 6C is basically identical to the Stanley number 6 with the exception of the sole. The sole of the number 6C has a series of parallel grooves running the length of the sole.

This type of sole is referred to as a corrugated sole. The 'C' in the model number '6C' stands for 'corrugated'.

The idea behind the corrugated plane is the sole has less friction when planing, particularly as the board becomes true. The smoothness of the planing can be improved further by lubricating the sole with oil/wax etc.
