Hello, was wondering does anyone know of any on line sites for buying old hand tools besides ebay? I’ve been looking for a Stanley number 8 hand plane and I’m not seeing anything worth what they are asking on ebay. Any help would be appreciated, Clarkie.

Patrick Leach puts out a list every month (July’s came out today). Good guy, and easy to work with:

I’ve had great success ordering from The Best Things:

I’ve never ordered from Ed Lebetkin, but I’ve visited his store and purchased in person. He doesn’t maintain an online storefront, but I’m pretty sure if you e-mail him and tell him what you’re looking for, he’ll ship it to you. Definitely a very knowledgeable guy, and will answer any question you have:

Hello Adam and thanks, they turned out to be good sites. They don’t have a number 8, but thanks for the leads.

LJ Don W. has a fantastic site packed full of information as well as tools he sells. Some are vintage and some he makes himself. Here's a link to the planes he has for sale right now. Keep an eye on it and contact him and let him know you’re looking for a #8.

Hello Ken, thanks for your help, fortunately I just purchased the number 8 this morning and this I believe is the final plane. Thanks for all the help, Clarkie.
