I managed to get access to an estate prior to it being open to the public. While I have a few hand planes I have never really managed to build a large collection. However, today this changed.

See the pics, for $200 I snagged what you see as well as a woodworking bench vise, Diston saw, shears, some clamps, chisels and a few other items.

Doing a little research I believe I got a good deal. All of them need some TLC as they have been in the shed for 20+ year unused.

Here is the list of planes:
Bailey #7
Sargent #53
Union #413
Stanley #53
Stanley #181
Stanley #71
Stanley #98
Miller Falls #56
Stanley #70

Now to figure out which one to clean up first….

Looks like you are on your way to a large collection now. Congeats on the new toys, er…tools.

I am not seeing any pictures. Is it just me?

ETA: Pictures came up just as I posted.

Looks like you have quite a haul there, plus a lot of work to do. I have a marking gauge exactly like the one in the bottom photo.

Nice Find.

Looks like a ‘new’ or expanded tool cabinet may be in your future. :-)

Which comes first, the referb or the cabinet?

Killer score … looks like you got the tough ones out of the way. Especially tough to find in the wild. Evaporust is your friend.

Len,
Not sure which will be first…. figure it will take a while to rehab them all… so the cabinet will probably get finished first.
Either way it will be a lot of fun.
