What’s a rough price of a no.7 stanley sweetheart plane. Condition is fair I’d say. I don’t need an exact price just something in the neighborhood. Sole is flat and sides are sq. Blade, tote and knobs are m in very good shape. About all I know. 50, 75, 100.00? I have no idea, I just need a joiner plane and don’t want to spend 350.00 For a woodriver or more for a L.N. thank in advance.

Are you making an offer on the plane or just checking to see that it’s not priced too high?

For as-is planes, you can certainly find them in the $50 region (or even lower) if you look long enough or if you’re lucky, but nearer to $100 would probably be more typical. If the plane has been pretty well fettled, I’d say that the odds of sub-$100 price tag are pretty much slim-to-none.

You can always check completed/sold listings on ebay, too, as a reference.

Two of the #7c stanley I have ( both Type 9) One was a total wreck for $30, counting shipping. the other looked a lot better, was listed @ $65 wound up doing some trading to get it.

The one you describe…..offer $75, try to stay below that $100 mark.

I just bought an old Bailey no 7 the other day. It took me about 2 hours to clean up the sole and other bits but is in pretty good shape otherwise cost me 80 bucks including shipping.

This plane looks to be in pretty good shape. I’m hoping to get it for maybe 75.00. It will be better than paying 3 or 4 hundred for a new one, which is what I was going to do. Funny thing is, up until a few weeks ago I didn’t even want a plane. Now in the last few weeks ive bought all 4 of the new Stanley sweetheart planes but still need a good joiner. I built a new work bench and need to flatten the top which is 30 in. Wide and about 72 in long. I figure this no. 7 will be large enough to do the job. Thanks for the info. On this, I’m new to using planes and I’ve got a long way to go, but it will be fun learning.

Careful….this be a very slippery slope you be standing on..

Left to right: Stanley N0. 7c,T-9, a Stanley No. 6c, T-10, a Stanley No. 5-1/2, T-17, a Stanley No.5c,T-7….then a bunch of Millers falls planes. There is a Stanley No.4, T-13 and a Stanley made #3 wards in there …somewhere….

Ohio Tools is a No. 07 (with a zero in front). MF always uses length of the sole for numbering. So a 7 equivalent would be a 22. Ohio tools have big, thick irons and are great users. Usually can be had much cheaper than the stanleys too.

I just sold 2, fully vetted, one for $75, and a very nice KK for $110. I’ve got one for sale as-found for $65 and one in the queue to be vetted.
