I have been thinking about picking up a hand plane for a while now. Just never knew what would be a good price for one. There are sooo many out there and all different sizes for different uses. Well today I ran across these 2 planes at a swap meet. Got BOTH of them for $23.00!!!! Could not believe that was all the guy wanted. (well he wanted 20 for the one and 10 for the other but I only had 23 on me, so he gave me both)
The one on the left is a 1950’s RECORD No5 the LEVER CAP is from a Millers Falls plane but from what I found on-line the rest is original.
The only ,marking on the smaller of the planes is ”Made in USA” under the handle, and on the upper end of the blade.
Both have smooth bottoms and very little rust. The blade on the RECORD has a little bit of pitting.
The RECORD is 14 inches long X 2 3/8 wide.
The no name is 9 1/4×2 1/8.
Now all I need is to have someone teach me how to fine tune tem and use them. haha
Thanks for looking.
