I was recently going through some of my fathers old wood working tools and I found. Stanley bedrock 24” 605 jack plane. I was wonder whAt the value of something like this is? I’m not wanting to sell it, but just curious. Its is a complete unit no missing parts everything is there and I have used it and it Works fine. By the wAy its not a “605C”. The condition is fair to moderate the top 3/8” of the handLe is broke. That’s it and a lil rust on the sides and heel.

Something seems not right here, 605 24”........ if its a 605 it should be around 14” or if its a 24” it should be a 608….. can you verify this information. Here's a very nice website that could help you determine the Type of plane that you have , but usually a bedrock 605 will sell for $125 plus, if its a 608 add another $75~100 to that. Can you provide pictures?

Is it the kind with the flat cheeks like this one
Bedrock 605 flat

Or rounded cheeks like this one
Bedrock 605 rounded

This is the 608, as you can see, much bigger than 605
Bedrock 608

Ok after some major research and some detail cleaning it is a 24” 608 stanley it has “whs” stamped on the side of it and the pat date is apr 98-apr 10. That’s all I have to go off of. Ne how I have taken many pics of it and am tring to figure out how to upload them to this site but I am having some problems. And btw it looks similar to the 608 pictured above but much bigger way way bigger!!!!!!!

I suspect the “whs” are initials? Any decent Stanley #8 could be worth a fair amount…a Bedrock in good condition will be worth even more. Condition and type influence value. “mvflaim’s” estimates sounds about right. As a comparison, I sold a Bedrock 605 for $85 that was restored and had a repaired tote…it was a good user but had little collector value. A 608 in original condition would fetch quite a bit more IMO.

To upload pics, you first need to put them on a photo hosting site…Photobucket.com works fine and is free. Once you’ve uploaded the pics to the hosting site, the pic will have a URL address as a “direct link”....it’ll start with “http:” and end with ”.jpg”. (ie:http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y203/hewood/Planes/Bedrock/Bedrock2002.jpg). You need to copy that URL on the photo hosting site, then come back to LJs and click on the “insert image” icon in the upper left corner of the reply dialogue box and paste the URL there.

Isn’t that workbench kind of narrow and close to the roof?

What do you mean , I guess you are talking about the missing part of your picture, if that’s the case, since you are using photobucket, you need to resize your picture to 640×480 pixels, that should fix the issue and give you the full image. This is also worth reading
