Al, Bill. Stop by here, red wine always available!!! The label on the item I have here looks like the label on the cheese package. I am going to bring this into the local import store, see what they think. I could see this being used to cut the rope/twine sometimes seen on large rounds/blocks  of imported cheeses. Thanks guys for all of your input!!! Regards, Lou

I was millwrighting  at Canfor then.  I walked in and applied as a carpenter/millwright. They hired me as a millwright, that was my start pulling wrenches.

Thanks Jim. The stamp is what is what I found so odd, very light, the Craftsman face side has no lines , like your #8. It could be a Canadian export model ? I do have a fleamarket find #9A, it has lines and the shorter Craftsman. I also have another fleamarket find, a #12.

 I once had fun trying to date a American Stanley #4 hand plane, a 1949 . Because it was a transitional type, some of one, some of another, I was able to get a year fix. Canadian pre-war were much easier, they had the month and year stamped on them.

Great study, finding the differences is always interesting. Of course, I didn't find mine. I think it's a type 8. I would have bought it around that time frame. Here is the kicker, it doesn't have any patient dates, or even patient pending. I bought it at Simpson-Sears in Richmond,  B.C. Canada. It has just FORGED IN USA -V- 43785. rather lightly stamped I might add.

Sounds like it could be a Type 9A or Type 10A depending on whether or not your ratchet has an oil port/hole or not.  Type 9A has the oil hole.  The Type 10A does not.

I'm guessing Chetwynd or maybe Dawson Creek. I spent close to a year in Chetwynd back in 1980, I was one of the crew building West Fraser sawmill.
