Topic tags/keywords: plane 4 bailey stanley

I bought a set of planes on eBay and I don’t have a use for this #4 because I already have a couple. I dated this and believe it falls under a WWII plane and it is in great shape. I didn’t do anything to tune it up just cleaned it up a little to show the potential for someone. Everything is in tact and the only problem I’ve discovered is that someone threaded the iron/chip breaker nut the wrong way so it’s a little tough but still works fine. Email me if you have any questions, want additional pictures or your interested.

I’d like to get $50 for the plane plus the shipping costs. I live in Illinois so that’s where it would be shipping from.

Hi Dave,
Sorry to say, your plane is more in the $20 – $40 range; at least, according to recent eBay selling prices….
Perhaps, you can restore it for more value_added. I just posted a completely restored nickel plated (#4 Stanley) Vintage Tool – Plane that commands 10X the price. Good Luck!!!
