Okay Jim, I’ll get it out and get it scanned.  It might take a few days, but I’ll get it to you.

Sorry Stanley62 you willhave to come back here to feel it.
Clever way of getting your son to stop back for a visit, although, if my parents lived in Illinois or much of anywhere in the Midwest, I think I'd wait for the summer humidity to pass before visiting.

Jim C thanks for the offer. My email is Jim Stanley 80 @ Gmail.com
 I'm guessing its a type 2 and knowing for sure won't change things.

Got a Stanley 50 at same auction Looks like a type 5. Has no cutters and missing a lot of plating. Stuck a 45 cutter in it for fun.

Okay Jim, the Stanley #72 Type Study is on its way to you via email.

 Got type study from Jim C (thanks)
Not a clear cut type.Body is type 4 but without (s) casting mark. Lever cap no(s) mark.Star wheel is brass which is type 3. cutter is RKS TM-J which is type 3
Thinking it is a type 4 with star wheel and cutter from type 3.
Anybody got a better classification?
Please don't tell me its Frankenstein concoction of different plane parts.

Keep in mind that no one provided the type studies to the production departments at Stanley; in many cases, they may have used up inventory of a given part before starting to install the new part, in a way that's not consistent with the type studies.  Poor production managers, using the Wrong Parts in their planes...

Hey Jim,

I honestly don’t think you have anything to worry about.  I’m with Bill on this one.  Stanley was in business to make money.  They didn’t waste inventory.  Parts were interchangeable, although little changes and/or improvements were made to various models throughout their production.  I’ve seen MANY planes that were 100% factory original with a mix of parts typically consisting of two back-to-back “types.”
