The first pic shows all of them.
2 of them are craftsman, don’t know how old but they do have casted on the made in USA.
1 is a dunlop. The spake plane is a stanley #15.
1 is a stanley but it has Defiance stamped on the handle.
The otherone has no markings except for casted made n the USA.

I posted them here because I couldn’t figure out, how to post pics anywhere else.

Anyway they only cost me $7.00 each..
1 of the craftsman has grooves running down the foot of the plane or bottom I forget what you call it. Old moment there lol. Does anyone know the age of it possibly?

the dunlap is made by millers falls. those grooves are called a corregated sole. craftsman some of them were made by stanley after the war thought they would have gotten rid of the corregated sole before then though. I have a few planes and have learned some about them since getting them. you can generally tell who made a plane by the frog

The price was right & perhaps now you’ve taken the first step that leads you to the “slippery slope” of plane collecting. Oh sure, you’ll call yourself a “user”, but after you get 20 or 30 or…100, you might begin to wonder about that as you slide headlong down into the deep precipice weighed down by a plane in each hand.

If you haven’t yet found these sites, they’re worth a look.

Have fun…enjoy -SST

The Dunlop plan was sold by Sears an Roebuck. My father bought one after WWII when he worked in the local Sears hardware department. He let me use and abuse it as a kid. As an adult I’ve used i on every project. Recently I gave Grandpa’s plane to my son. I expect it will get many more years of satisfying use.

Hey, nice planes. You have a good buy. I believe that I purchased nearly all of my planes on Ebay except for the ones that I bought when I bought my first tools back in 1971. I assume that you bought these nearby since you didn’t say Ebay. A local estate auction is a good place to buy tools because you get to see them before you buy. Great Buy!

WOW you legally stole those tools! From the pictures they look to be in really good shape. They should last for many years. Enjoy.
