Instead of indicating changes in plane features from type to type, the timeline profiles the history of a each plane feature. That actually makes it a type line not a timeline, but that's a minor point. As an example consider a segment of the timeline given below which covers tote and knob composition:. Variations on each feature are given in the Plane Feature column. The Plane Type column shows which types include which feature.
Please note that all type studies are approximate as production variations throughout the manufacturing years were quite common. Understand that neither Stanley nor any other manufacturer followed type studies. In fact, it is only in the last 30 years or so that type studies have been assembled through historical research and the physical inspection of hundreds or thousands of tools made over the years.
