So how much is too much to pay for one of the many Stanley #7’s that show up on ebay? And how can you tell when they were made?

I would say that over 100 dollars is too much. Not that they aren’t good planes, it’s just that I think you can find one cheaper if you aren’t in a hurry. My patience paid off a few months ago when I got one for 30 dollars on Craigslist. It was an early 1900s #7 with a newer iron from the 1970s. As far as telling how old they are, here is a link with some great info.

$50-70 is about right from what I’ve seen.

I had a Bedrock #8 I sold on ebay and I was a little surprised it
didn’t go for more than it did. Sold for about $118 as I recall
and it was a very nice plane.

Depending on condition, type, and number of bidders, it’s not unusual for a #7 to get up in the $100 range, but many can go for less. The real bargains are those that needs some TLC, if you’re willing to supply it. has an excellent Stanley plane type study with great pics.
