Hello,

I’m new to this hobby and have been given to understand that a Stanley No. 60-1/2 would be a sound investment. Does anyone have one to sell?

Thanks,

Mike Leonard

Don’t give up lookin’. Even though mine is an english made Stan., once tuned and sharpened, it has been a go-to plane. Good choice Mike. Keep comin’ back.

Mike, I have several low angle block planes but currently no #60 1/2. Keep your eye on ebay as they do show up there. The 60 1/2 is a small plane, only 6” long and fits nicely in the hand. For guys with bigger hands, you may be comfortable with a 65 or a Sargent made knuckle cap block plane, which are very nice users. I have a couple of those that I could sell. I’m in Canada tho, so shipping cost may be prohibitive, but PM me if you are interested.
