Looking for a local sell in the SF Bay area (specifically Santa Rosa, CA – 95409). I’ll consider shipping after a week or so if they’re still available.


Lie Nielsen No. 164 SOLD
Link to Photo Album

From Lie Nielsen:

This compact, low-angle plane is capable of fine smoothing cuts or rapid stock removal and copes easily with end grain and knotty wood. Based on the rare Stanley 164, it is essentially a low angle version of the No. 4 Bench Plane and a shorter version of the Low Angle Jack. The adjustable mouth and the unique, overhead, Bailey-type blade adjuster allow smooth adjustment of the cutting depth, even while planing.

- 9-1/2” long.
- Blade is 2” wide x .187” thick, bedded at 12°.
- Iron body, 3.75 lbs.

Lie Nielsen No 112 – SOLD
Links to Photo Album

From Lie Nielsen:

An excellent tool for putting the final finish on large surfaces, especially when using woods that are difficult to finish with a Smoothing Plane. Our Large Scraping Plane is based on the Stanley No. 112, which was in production from 1885 to 1944. The blade, beveled at 45°, can be precisely adjusted to take the finest of shavings. The sole is ground dead flat.
- 9-1/2” long x 3-1/4” wide
- Blade is 2-7/8” wide x .140” thick
- Iron body, 4 lbs.

164 smoothers are really nice. the adjustment knob takes a little getting used to but but found it convenient. kind of reminds me of a mini jack plane

They’re both sold, sorry. But ya, the 164 adjustment knob on the 164 is what sold me on it. One handed operation like a traditional bailey pattern plane using your middle finger for quick adjustments
