There are all sorts of planes ourt
there...but many were made by just a few companies. this is my
rule of thumb for determining company of manufacture:
Stanley is the ever familiar two piece
Sargent is the one piece tight "U"
Union is a one piece 90 degree bend
and the Millers falls is the one piece
bent tab at 90 degrees
many other styles but I think what
you'll see for the most part are these or slight variations. Stanley used the
Union lateral for some branded planes after they bought out Union. Sargent used
slight variations on their design for planes they made for others.
Good frogs look like these: all basically
the same design..
Stanley Frog..Union is the same design (except for the "X"
Millers Falls frog
you have to stay away from are these:
stamped frogs are the kiss of death
I'll be adding to this page, so please
