First of all, I am a woodworking nob. It is a hobby that I’ve found very relaxing. Over the weekend I’ve ran into a number of hand planes and could not resist. I got a Stanley Bailey no 8c, Miller Falls no 18B, Stanley Bailey no 6, Craftsman no 5 size, unknown no 5 size, new Stanley no 4, Stanley no 110 block plane, and a set of Stanley no 60 butt chisels. All of this for the price of $123. A couple plane needs work but most are producing nice shavings. I don’t need all of them so I am thinking of letting the Bailey 8C and 6 go.
I have a couple questions:
1. What is the value of the Bailey no 8c?
2. The unknown no 5 have a “DHP” iron and “5 VS 0?” stamped in the body. Does anyone know what this could be?
Sorry for the lack of pictures. I didn’t know about the 5MB rule.
