Looks like you have three complete bench planes in all that metal. That’s a lot of plane parts for the price. Are they mostly Stanley parts? It looks like lever caps say “Stanley” on them. You did well to rescue them.

Don W should be along shortly to drool :)

Looks like a good deal on that load of irons.

Four each Bailey #4 cast in the bodies. One bench plane is in fairly good shape – a Stanley “C556” cast in body (#3??) a little narrower than the #4s anyway. 24 extra blades/chip breakers. there was a brand new blade for my low angle block plane and there was enough parts to put another low angle plane together. anyway way more stuff than I will ever use…

I need a number 5 Bailey sole, a plane 2inch lever cap (but one that says Stanley would work) and a couple of block parts an eccentric toe adjustment lever for a Stanley 65 SW and a lever knob for a Stanley 220. But your parts all look to knew for my old planes.

That’s a lot of good iron.

Sometime next year I’ll probably start looking at starting my collection.

I hope some time to find a glut such as yours to gloat about. ;-)
