Topic tags/keywords: bench planes for sale

Hey Folks,

Before I start I, want to clarify that I have full authorization from Martin to publish this post, with that being said…

I’ve currently been collecting/buying several dozens of Bench planes, if you been reading my blog you will be fully aware of that.
With all the expenses that restoring tools is bringing to me (materials & tools) I have the necessity to sell some of my restored planes.

I want to give ALL the Lumberjock’s the opportunity to get one of these before I end up selling them on eBay, also I will feel better if they end up on a workshop of one of my fellas Lj’s

I tried to keep the planes as original as possible (most of the cases) but in some other situations if there’s something not original I will fully explain the reasons why and what was the process/accessory replaced with.

The restoration was only to bring up those details that make the Stanley/Bailey planes to stand up from the rest, ( Polished brass, Polish Tote and knob sharpen blade etc)

Note: I will like to state that these tools may not have any collector value since they are restored, but they are in a great working condition so I’m selling tools meant to be use not for collectors

Anyone interested send me a PM with your PayPal email address I will reply ASAP

If you buy 2 or more I will combine shipping whenever possible to help you save on shipping.

Priority Mail Flat rate box only!!

Small box ships for $5
Medium Box for $11
Large Box for $15

If one individual gets the entire lot, shipping will be based on weight and final destination as there’s no way I can fit everything in a large flat rate box.

Will start shipping towards the end of this week. (As soon as I get the boxes from the USPS)

These are offered on a first come first served basis.

Price for the whole lot of 6 Bench planes $200 + shipping

Stanley No 220 $25+ shipping ~~~~SOLD~~~~

• The Japanning was almost gone when I got it (20-15% left) so I apply 3 coats of Rustoleum and bake it to 275f for 25 min.
• There’s some pitting present all around the tool.
• Its missing the front knob.
• The blade was sharpened with the scary sharp method.

Stanley/Bailey No 4 nice $40+ shipping ~~~SOLD~~~

• Original Japanning (about 90%) left
• Not marks on the blade
• No cracks on Tote or knob
• Polished brass and wood handles
• The blade was sharpened with the scary sharp method.

• Blade marked “FULTON WARRANTED”
• Small missing piece of wood on the knob and the horn on the Tote as well (very common)
• Polished brass and wood handle

• Brass depth adjuster but stainless steel screws on Tote and knob
• “Low” knob, nice grain pattern
• No Cracks knob, but there’s a fix on the base area of the Tote which blends nicely with the tote.
• Blade marked “Ohio”
• No pitting
• The blade was sharpened with the scary sharp method.
• Has a Stanley Lever cap, which obviously does not belong to this plane, but again that is the same condition as I got it.

Stanley/Bailey No 6 $50+ shipping ~~~SOLD~~~

• The Japanning was almost gone when I got it (20-15% left) so I apply 3 coats of Rustoleum and bake it to 275f for 25 min.
• No cracks on the knob but there is a fixed crack on the tote that also is missing a piece of the horn (common issue)
• Tall knob
• Polished Brass hardware and wood handles
• Some light pitting on the sole most noticeable towards the back of the sole
• Very nice tool overall
• The blade was sharpened with the scary sharp method.

I have 1 more No6 and a few hand drills that I will be selling soon too for anyone interested.

I’m interested in how u polish the brass?, and what grits were used to sharpen the blades? I have stones and a grinder but can’t seem to get a solid sharpening system down to get the same results everytime. I want to go back a step and see if i can do it with the sandpaper i also have the veritas jig and a cheap one, the one everyone has to guide their blades across stones or sandpaper etc. I already have enough hand planes as u can see in my avitar most are new but i also have a few others i want to get rid of myself. I want to get planes with the flat frog adj. though your #6 might have the frog i’m talkin about.

I do the polish with an electrical buffer and some buffing wheels, I use 2 different buffing compounds that HF sales, one is a black color the other one is green. I use the black to remove most of the stains from the brass, as soon as you are done with the black compound move to the other wheel and now with the green compound you will be able to get a high polish. I finish the little details (like the screwdriver slot ) with some “Brasso” and a little pieces of a clean rag to remove any residue of compound or Brasso and done deal.

For the blades I used 320,400,800,1000 & 1200 not joking but if you could see my finger tips now, you will understand how sharp those blades are now. :) I also have one of the cheap honing guides from woodcraft.

Just wanted to add that I purchased the #4 Bailey and the #6 Bailey and they arrived on Thurs, 1/28/10. They were in great shape and Alonso’s restoration work was top notch. These planes filled a hole I had with regards to the sizes of bench planes….I have a couple to restore myself (a #4 and some smaller ones) but have not had the time to get them done.

I am using Alono’s planes this weekend for some repair work and the edges are cutting like champs. Sounds like a commercial here, but that was not my intent…I just wanted to let folks, and Alonso, know how happy I am with my purchase.

Your planes look great. Since you restore planes, you might be able to help with something that I need. I have a Stanley Bailey #5 that I am restoring that has a broken frog. Would you happen to have a frog that you could spare that might fit it.
