An older gentleman in my hometown is getting rid of his collection of planes. He’s advertising them at $10-$40. He says he has brands such as Stanley, Sargent, Fulton, Miller Falls, Shelton and many others. I’ve got three older Stanley’s that I like and work well. Had them for at least 30 years. I’m thinking I’d like to see what he’s got, and pick up a couple I can referb and use. I already know to look for a dead flat bed and obvious other things.
But…..I’d also like to possibly find a couple of jem’s. Something that is a collectors item maybe.
Here’s some pictures of his collection
