I hope i am posting this in the right place. I am in search of the following tools.
1. Jointer Plane
2. Smoothing Plane #4 or #41/2
3.Jack Plane
4. Low-Angle Block Plane
I am not an old tool scholar but would buy some old tools if the person saleing them has made them functional. the reason I am posteing this here is that I could buy some things off ebay but I want to know what I am getting and ebay has to much fluff, many sellars on ebay sale things for other people and dont know anything about what they are saleing. To be honest maybe tool restoration is in my future but for right now I want to build with the tools and not spend all my time restoreing, so for those of you who like to restore let me know what you have that you would liikke to part with

What kind of budget do you have? I keep my eyes on local auctions particularly estate sales as they often have tools. Do you have a particular project in mind or is this just a list of tools that you feel you should have? The reason I ask is that perhaps you could buy say the # 4 to start and then as projects require it you could seek out additional tools. I wish you success on your journey to find these tools.
