What are the sizes of the Stanely Bench planes?


The standard sizes of the Stanely bench planes are listed in the table below. When creating the list I found it interesting how the length of the planes are measured. On planes No. 4 and smaller, the length does not include the small metal bump created by the tote hanging off the back of the plane. On the No. 5 and larger planes the tote is well within the length of the plane so this is not a concern so the length is the full length of the plane.
