Correct, never did.  The marketed. Depending on the vintage, many of the woodworking hand tools were excellent; fell off in the early 60's when they spec'd for price points and not so much quality, at least in bench planes.  That being said, their block planes remained good through the 70's.

Stanley has a long history of legal challenges to & from competitors.  One would think they would know what they are doing, buy now.  It will be interesting to see where this leads.
If you are going down a river at 2 mph and your canoe loses a wheel, how much pancake mix would you need to shingle your roof?
