The Stanley 26 Transitional Plane is an old Stanley plane first made
in the late 1800's during Victorian times.
The Stanley 26 plane is a 15 inch long jack plane / fore plane fitted with a 2 inch wide plane cutter. It has a wooden body made from Beech and a cast iron top section which was finished with a black japanning.
The Stanley 26 has similar metal features and sizes of a Stanley 5 plane including being fitted with a Stanley 5 plane blade, cap iron, black lever cap, lateral adjuster and depth adjuster wheel.
The introduction of Stanley Transitional Planes were planes which were a cross between
the historically dominant wooden planes of the time and the historically new metal
I saw an old Laurel and Hardy video which shows a transitional plane of the time at the start of the clip:
1884 - 1934
