I ran across a hand plane a few days ago with a sticker that said “Westline by Stanley”. The Japanning is blue. It’s appears to be a #3, but I’m not sure.
The price listed was $45.
What can you tell me about this plane?
I’ve been trying to find information on this but have had no luck.
The only mentioning I’ve been able to find is a listing on ebay.
I’ll post a pic as soon as I can get one.

Western Auto house brand.

$45 is on the high side. It might be made to a lower
standard than the Baileys. $30 would be a better
buy, imo. #3’s aren’t uncommon, though I don’t
think I’ve ever owned one.

Any relation to the “red” Handyman series planes? There is one downtown for about $10. About a smallist #3. This one is a might rusty, though the red parts are still quite red….

Could be. I didn’t mean to imply the Westline brand
is common. #3 size Stanley planes are common though.

Stanley Handyman planes… umm, well. They suck..

$45 is to much IMHO.
