Sargent Type 6 Bench Plane – 400 series

Types: Type 1, Type 2 and 3, The 540x Series,  Type 4, Type 5, Type 6, Type 7, Type 8.

Keep in mind, Sargent type study is a confusing work in progress. Please email me your example and expect things to change from time to time.  All dates are from Dave Heckel’s book unless otherwise stated.

  • Its got a type 5 cutter  (1942-1950)
  • A type 4 cap.                ((1919-1942)
  • One piece yoke
  • A mahogany knob and tote.
  • Plane number behind frog
  • Brass knob and tote nuts
  • Brass Adjuster knob
  • Sargent stamped behind knob

And here is what seems a little different. Its got a brass cutter adjuster knob, and brass nuts on the knob and tote.
Typical for this time frame? Lets take a poll.

Here is a Sargent #411 I’m also going to classify as a type 6. Note the dif

differences however, so one of these may be wrong.

  • Its got a type 5 cutter  (1942-1950)
  • A type 4 cap.                ((1919-1942)
  • One piece yoke
  • A mahogany knob and tote.
  • Plane number in front
  • Brass knob and tote nuts
  • Brass Adjuster knob
  • Sargent stamped behind knob

  1. She surely is BEAUTIFUL! But, would you call her a mutant? The shimmery curls really advance from the frog nicely. The blade apparently honed to your satisfaction?
