I was at the flea market today, looking for a couple tings in mind, and I found one that I was looking for.

no 6
A Stanly Baily No.6 w/ Sweetheart Blade.

This joins the others that I currently have:

Front to back:
Stanly Block Plane
Unknow “Made in the USA” from my uncle
Corrugated Side Craftsman Plane
Stanly Baily No. 6

I’ve a couple projects in mind to put the new aquisition to work on, so stay tuned.

I had to run out and see what the plane I just bought at a garage sail was. Mine is a Stanley Baily #5 and the other Stanley is a handyman. I havent used one since High school in the 50s and probably wont but they are neet to have around for looks if nothing else. The tool maker

nice score! a #6 is a nice size to have jointer quality but still space conscience. I guess that trip was well worth it :)

Thanks all,

It needs to be cleaned up a little, but should be good.

wakez, Sweetheart is the mark on blade, a SW inside a heart below the Stanly name
