Topic tags/keywords: stanley plane type rosewood jack plane corrugated

Here is another plane ready for sale. It’s a beautiful Stanley #5C jack plane. Approximately a type 8/9. Has a single date on the lateral adjuster, and two dates on the bed behind the frog. Please see the pictures for the features that lead me to believe it’s approx this type. Regardless of type, this is a terrific collector and user plane. Blade sharpened with a slight camber for material removal but a fine setting will still give you a very nice surface.
The blade has a very small amount of pitting to the back. And the happening is only about 50%. Other than that the plane is very nice. Has nicks and dings as normal with this age. The rosewood tote is as nice as I’ve ever seen. Asking $90 for this fully restored beauty.

Do you have a date of when it was manufactured?

Look up Stanley bench plane dating. Somewhere around 1900+ probably.

Fine wire wheels clean up brass and adjusting wheels nicely. Just got a 6” from lee valley and it works like a champ.

Hi WadeHolloway,
This plane has features of both a type 8 and9 according to the commonly accepted type studies. That puts it between approximately 1899 and 1907.
Hope that helps.
Are you looking for a specific age / timeline for some tools?

TheFridge, I am extremely cautious with wire wheels. Especially on brass. I do use them for really tough grime. The brass on this plane has been cleaned up with a wax lubricated pad of 0000 steel wool. I leave further polishing up to the new owner if desired.

Can you please stop showing planes flat on their sole plates?!

As an apprentice I had it beaten into me that planes are NEVER EVER to be placed flat, only on their sides or in a box with a ridge.

Just me! Lol

I hope as a restorer you’ld treat the tool with more respect than you show people. It’s a public forum, get a grip. Or is this a sample of the after sale support if you deliver a seriously unsharp tool? (Response to PM)

I’m never really sure why some people feel the need to try to attempt to sabotage someone’s “for sale” post with unhelpful comments like MadMark. Regardless of your “training”.

Let me assure everyone this:
Touching the sole of my planes to wood, including maple and walnut (as is the surface of my bench) WILL NOT harm them. In fact I encourage it. That’s what planes are for. I guarantee my blades will arrive to you sharp and capable of taking fine shavings. Setting the plane down on a wood bench when the blade is extended by a couple thousandths of an inch will do no more harm then resting the plane on the wood which you are working in between strokes.
If however, your workbench is made of stone, concrete, or steel, then please do follow MadMark’s advice and rest the plane on its side.

I’m interested in the plane, but too new to send a message. Can you let me know what you think the shipping would be to 14227?
