I have two Stanley planes I would like to sell. One is a Stanley number four. It can be used they way it is but there is rust on the bottom of it. The other is a Stanley number 5. It will need to be sharpened for use. I would like $30 for the number four and $35 for the number five. I can email pics to you.

Any patent dates on the planes or info on the age of the planes?

No patent on either of them and I don’t know how to age them.

There are several type studies that allow you to date a stanley bench plane. Photos would probably help you sell them quicker.

Where were you two weeks ago! I just bought and reconditioned a #3, #4 and #5 that I found on eBay for short money. These are in much better looking shape than what I bought.

Your #4 appears to be a Type 15 and your #5 appears to be a Type 16 or 18 (using the Plane Dating Flowchart). I can’t be positive as I can’t see the knurling on the blade depth adjustment knob on the #5.

I wish I had a bit more in my tool budget as these are well worth your asking price!

I am new to this forum and can’t figure out how to PM you. I want the #4 if it is still available. You can email me at “anthony_griffith@live.com” I can do paypal, money order, whatever you prefer. Can you ship to 75159?

Anthony you have to have a minimum of 5 forum posts to use the PM system. This was done to keep the spammers down.
