Why is this Stanley Plane worth so much? Is there any significant difference between that one and a Vintage Sweet Heart? I just can’t figure out why so expensive??

No.2 bedrock planes are sought after by collectors. This one is in really good shape. I wouldn’t mind having it, but not at that price.

The 602’s are rare, and this one is in great shape and it’s corrugated. I wouldn’t pay that but for collectors, it might be worth it.

Is there any significant difference between a corrugated and a non-corrugated?

Corrugated models of this plane are rare compared to smooth bottomed versions… or are you asking about corrugation in general Alonso?

This is a small plane as well. (7”L, 1 5/8”W)

Yes in general, what’s the advantage or disadvantage of having a corrugated vs a non-corrugated?

corrugated is a lot easier to push if your are planing a lot of wood all day long.

Be careful for counterfeit corrugations on this one. It’s one of Stanley’s scarcer planes, especially in the round top configuration, which opens it up for the crafty tool artisans to apply their handiwork.

I think I may start making planes and selling them on ebay….

Look upwhat you can get a Lie-Neilsen #2 for brand new.

That gives you an idea what the collectors are doing to pricing.

I am not a tool collector, I am a tool user! I never pay top dollar for old planes, I just patiently watch craigslist for a deal then strike first. I’m sorry, but tools are meant to be used not hung on a wall.

Woowww final bid was $1250…. for a tool that is going to be hung on the wall like Julian said, I would rather buy a G0586, + G0505, and a G7946 for about the same price and put them to use instead of staring at a little hanging tool and make something nice out of them.
