Topic tags/keywords: stanley bailey no 6

Got my first Stanley Bailey plane today, it is a #6 at an estate sale for $10. A bit rusty, sole is not nearly as bad as the sides, no great scratches in it. Blade needs proper sharping of course. I have no idea when it was made.

No 6 Bailey

-- That was not wormy wood when I started working on it.

Clean it up it should be good to use. $10.00 is a great price.
