Founded in a time where there weren’t many companies dedicated to the innovation and progression of hand tools, Stanley Works’ early beginnings in the bolt and door hardware industry ushered in their dominance in the manufacturing of hand tools to this very day.

Stanley Works has always been in-tune with the needs of wood workers and tradesmen alike, through their extensive 175-years of service the company has developed not just a knowledge base but an understanding of exactly what the professional user needs. In the late 19th century, Stanley, together with Leonard Bailey invented a system for their range of hand planes. This system, known as the Bailey System, set the precedent for much of the thought processes found in woodwork today. The Bailey System emphasized the importance of working from “rough” to “fine” by providing numbers to signify to the user exactly which plane to use at which stage of surface planing. Stanley’s system for these hand planes has since been adopted by all reputable hand plane manufacturers of today. A very popular iteration which came from this series of hand planes is the Stanley Adjustable Block Plane. Equipped with a razor-sharp cutting edge, fully adjustable mouth as well as the perfect dimensions to fit the palm of your hand – this hand plane has become a favourite solution for planing smaller stock.

This ever-evolving hand tool company has since ventured into portable power tools, bringing its decades of knowledge and expertise to the modern world. Their coveted FatMax range of power tools extends from 18-volt cordless impact drills like the handyman’s Stanley FatMax FMC600 Cordless Impact Drill/Driver to the incredibly powerful and robust Stanley FatMax FME720 254mm Compound Sliding Mitre Saw made to accommodate some of the most productive workshops.

In its 175-years, Stanley has transformed from a small hardware manufacturer into becoming one of the biggest and most formidable tool manufacturers in the world.
