Welcome, Kranker. I don’t have a spare #7, but I recently purchased one for $25 + shipping from ebay. You just have to watch those buy-it-now recent listings. Generally I’ve been seeing them close for around 50 to 70 dollars, but I’ve seen some good deals here or there. If you’re not just interested in Stanley, I’d also recommend looking for vintage Union, Keen Kutter, and Sargent (VBM) planes—all quality vintage. But perhaps someone here has one to sell.

Thanks Guys.

Basically what i am looking for is a Stanley #7 also #5 in good shape ready to use. Restored or original i dont care. Sikrap is sending me a email with some pics. any body else has some let me know i am interested. I have been bitten by the hand plan bug. SOmething about the simplistic beauty of a plane that is just mezmorising to me. SO if anybody could help feed my addiction it would be appreciated.

Thanks Krank

I have a Millers Falls #14 ( equivalent to Stanley Bailey 5, I believe) that I would sell. $45 + shipping. Also have an extra #7 (Stanley) that I will sell for $85 + shipping. If you buy and decide it is not for you, notify me within 3 days of receipt and I will refund your money.
