Topic tags/keywords: plane

Browsing Kijiji the other day, found an ad for some hand planes for sale… met up with the guy today and this was the haul:

First:


Stanley #5 1/2 – Using the identification flow-chart (http://www.hyperkitten.com/tools/stanley_bench_plane/start_flowchart.php) , this plane appears to be a Type 7 (1893-1899).
Its in excellent shape for a user, the sole is pretty close to flat and in good shape, only real cosmetic issue is the japanning which is flaked off a bit, but overall, it came nicely honed and tuned, the frog was nicely flattened and set up, i was able to produce thin whispy shavings right off the bat.

Second:

Stanley #3 which appears to be a type 19, in very good shape, no cosmetic issues, sole is true and came with a new Hock blade/chip breaker!

Third:

Stanley 4, also a type 19 and in very good shape.. I didnt actually buy this one, he just threw it in to sweeten the deal (probably to keep me from low-balling him too much!)... I’ll either throw this one up on E-bay or convert it for a scrub plane or something since i’ve already got a few similar #4s…

Got the whole lot for $60, can’t complain at all! (Expecially since the Hock blade on the #3 is worth almost 50$ with taxes)... All three are nicely set up and tuned and freshly honed and ready to go too!

Thanks! Didnt think i could low ball him too much on them.. judging by how well maintained and honed they were, he obviously knew what they were and what they were worth..

Hey, do they even HAVE Kijiji in the USA? It’s like Craiglist north of the border. Great score on the planes!

Poopiekat: Doesnt look like Kijiji serves the USA.. Canada only… it is like craigslist for us,,, there is a craigslist for canada, but doesnt have much content..
