Any photos? With out any photo there would be lots of questions….
General condition? High front knob or low front Knob? Any patent dates? Is it complete? Rust? How much Japanning? lol…. You get the idea.

I bought mine at a yard sale, also. Paid $15.00.One like new (mine isn’t) is selling for around $120 on ebay.Yours looks to be in about the same condition as mine. I’d guess it would bring $70 or $80.

It is a nice little plane. I was thinking about $65 after looking at the photos… Perhaps a bit more to collectors if you listed it on eBay. What is the patent date in front of the tote? It is not readable in the photo. Also this is a 3C for the corrigated bottom. Also the condition is very good. If your going to sell it or use it for that matter, I would not “restore” it.

I bought mine at an antique shop and paid $25.00 for mine. Looks like you grabbed yourself a beauty. What did you pay for it?

It is a nice one. I suggest you use it. I agree that it will get you a few bucks on ebay but in mho you would have more by keeping it than by pocketing a 50.

good news then. I paid about $30 for this and it seems that by most of your comments that I got a decent deal. The guy I bought it from had about 15-20 different planers, all for sale. Are there any particular attributes that make them more valuable or not? He had a few Keen’s and a few wooden Stanley’s as well. I know he had a No 8, 7, a couple 5s, a 4, a couple more 3s, and a few others.
Wayne – I do not see a patent date on it at all, but will have to check again when I get home. Any idea just by the features (high front knob, with the insert ring on the bottom and the corrugation) on the year of this piece?
Superdav – I checked that site out. Very very informative.
Thanks again for your comments.
