Topic tags/keywords: bedrock stanley plane smoothing smoother

Another plane for sale today. This is a beautiful Bedrock 604 smoother. Plane has been fully restored and sharpened to 8000 grit. As you can see it takes terrific shavings and leaves a glass smooth surface on this cherry. The way a smoother should work!!
The sole has been lapped flat on my granite surface.
This is a sweetheart era plane with a “Made in Canada” blade but made in USA body. In my experience this was not uncommon for the Canadian Stanley factory to do and is not an indicator that the plane is not all original.
Please note the very slight putting and strange circle indents on the sides, neither of which affect the precision use of this fine tool.
The rosewood tall knob and tote are in great condition.

Asking $225 USD. Plus postage.
Thanks for looking!!

Very nice restoration.

For one just looking to obtain a usable plane and not a collector or loyal to the mystique of vintage Stanleys, one of these can be had for 1/2 the price and will perform equally as well.

Why would you glom on to someone else’s ‘For Sale’ thread in the Trade and Swap? Is that not considered to be rude here? ‘Cause I think it’s pretty tacky.

It sure is both rude and tacky Bill, sometimes I just shake my head.
But guess what, one of the things I love about this forum is that people can choose to buy, or not buy, whatever they want!
Rwe2156, if this plane is not for you, no problem. Thank you for pointing that out and that there are cheaper planes out there. We sure appreciate the info. If I’ve somehow offended you personally by offering this Bedrock plane for sale, I sure do apologize!

For anyone who is actually interested in buying this finely restored vintage tool, it is still available!

You hit that nail on the head didn’t you. I think we all know you could buy a cheaper plane, even a cheaper bedrock but I can’t fault a guy for wanting to make a few bucks on the side by saving some of us the trouble of restoring a good vintage plane. That’s a darn good looking plane and I hope you find a buyer quickly.
