« Part 1: Stanley Bedrock 605C Jack Plane Part 2 of Estate Sale Finds series Part 3: - Delta Milwaukee 6" Jointer »

Went to an Estate Sale Thursday and found this Craftsman 22” long jointer hand plane. I did not have one of this type, so I got it and the one shown here . I can’t find any markings on the Craftsman other than “Made in the USA”. It is in good shape except for a small chip on the front that should not effect the performance.

Made my MF, is my guess. Very nice find, as I’ve seen quite a few 4s and 5s, that’s the first Craftsman 7. Sharpen itup and have some fun!

Well taking into the fact it is 22” that is less than $% for a smaller hand plane
