What were the original lengths of Stanley Bailey plane irons? I haven’t been able to find any information online.

The problem is is that the total length varied though out production among other changes. If you are wondering what the length of a Sweet Hart or Block TM blade that is almost unused it is around 7 3/4” long. No. 2 and 1 blades are quite a bit shorter. When I sell blades I measure the usable life left in them. That way you can compare one blade to another.

Have your say...
