I have always liked the size and weight of the #3 Stanley Bailey plane. It just seems to fit my hand. I picked this plane up at a flea market for $5.00 with intentions of making a user out of it. It isn’t a show piece by any means, but it cuts great and leaves a very smooth finish. I wish I had taken a before photo so you could see how it looked before I started. I am very happy with the way that it turned out and this one will get a lot of use in my shop. The best part is that other than some elbow grease and some cleaning and finishing supplies, I have $5.00 invested in this plane.
