Topic tags/keywords: stanley bedrock plane

Hello all,
I have an ebay auction going for a Stanley Bedrock 605 smoother. It is a Type 14 according to the Leach system. It has minimal rust. The only problems are that the tote is broken and I think the hardware on the front knob might not be original. Anyway, please have a look and let me know if you have questions.

PS. I asked Martin a while back if it was ok to post ebay auctions and he said yes. :)

Looks like a nice plane. I have a 605 with a hock blade and it is a sweet plane.

Don, current price is $15 with a reserve.

I think that you may be correct about the front knob. If I am not mistaken, the Bedrock planes (at least the number 7 that I had) had a shorter and fatter front knob as opposed to the taller ones like yours has. For your true collectors which are the ones that will drive up the price, that will impact it’s value. However, it would have not affect whatsoever on it’s value as a user. It looks to be in good shape and the ones with square sides like you have tend to be more valuablee than the later ones that had rounded sides like the bailey planes did. Still, yours is the 605 which, while of some value simply due to being a bedrock, is not as valuable as some because the 605 and 604 sizes were very common. Good luck selling it. I hope it ends up in the hands of someone who will appreciate and use and care for it properly. A tool like that should not be istting on a shelf collecting dust.
