This past weekend was yard sale heaven in Castle Rock. The local HOAs sponsor an annual ‘Neighborhood Yard Sale Event’, so there were wares in abundance.
I managed to hit vintage tool pay-dirt at one of these sales, finding not one, but two #5 jack planes.
One is a Stanley with corrugated sole…
...and the other is a Lakeside, also with corrugated sole.
Sadly the Stanley bears a hefty crack on one side of the sole, so it is basically a door stop. I picked it up only for the tote.
This was necessary because the Lakeside has a broken tote, and the one from the Stanley is a perfect fit.
End result – out of the two planes, I will be able to put together a good user. I finally have a jack plane in my hand tool arsenal, all for the mere sum of $12 and a little fettling work.
I will post some pics of the finished Lakeside.
