Here is a early Stanley collectable plane in great condition it will be shipped at the price of 6 dollars as it fits in a small flat rate box if you pay the full asking price the plane will be shipped free and will be insured against damage these are wonderful tools and this one takes the finest shavings that i have ever seen from a no2 it has no problem the nob and tote are original and the blade is super sharp these planes have been going up in value the past 6 months and this may be the best price you ever see again on a fine unblemished no 2 here are the photos for your approval again if you are making an offer please pm me i will watch the thread but it will go to the first full price offer that PMS me this one is sweet don’t miss out these are getting very hard to find believe me i have people looking all over the country they are not found every month let alone every day

also this plane is very rare as the only markings are on the lever cap this has been verified that some were made like this and sold when the department store that ordered the planes did not take delivery plus no no2 is on this and no patent dates that makes this plane very rare

I would be interested, but I would need to see the plane disassembled from all angles. Your photos would have to be higher quality also. A good example of images would be this

I am sorry but this site limits the resolution of the photos or they wont upload however that said my phots look better than the one you showed and what exactly do you want to see I am willing to take photos of the frog and the bottom of the planer but i am not removing the frog because it takes a long time and a lot of trial and error to get a plane adjusted this well and if i remove it i wont be able to get it back into the same place easily as it has no frog adjustment screw. I have sold thousands of planes and I feel a little upset that you feel my 10 megapixel Nikon took a bad photo when the one you show for a fine example looks like it was taken with a Kodak camera it had no detail at all

Hmmm… a LN Nº2 in iron is $245 and $275 for the bronze bedrock style. Just saying.

LJs, Seriously?!!

thedude has offered this workhorse at a price which he feels, for it’s fit and finish, is fair and true.

Make an offer or do your horse tradin’ on e-Bay, it’s America, you have many choices. ;-)

Ok in 6 hours or so I will be posting this on eBay then the good deal is gone one just like this just sold on eBay for 325 so i do think my price is fair many people know the price of vintage will only go up as there is no bubble in the plane market

Thanks Len some people just don’t get it

yes he has agreed to buy it it was a very wonderful plane and like i said one just like it sold for almost 400 dollars a few days ago on eBay our goal is to sell planes that will be put in the hands of real woodworkers and yes joe I have a new partner in my plane ventures and so some of the planes i sell are mine and some are ours after speaking with you the other day about Sam Maloof I checked out several articles about him I will be planing a trip to his gallery and hope to tour his home as well as it is now open to the public 2 days a week and i will of coarse need reservations as I will be driving 3 hours to get to his place or 4 or 5 depending on traffic as you know it can stand still for a long time in LA one big reason I don’t live in the south land any longer

Very good Lance!

Be sure to let me know when you’re planning on taking the Maloof tour so we can meet eye to eye & shoot the gab, etc. You will like it…

It’s a shame He isn’t around to give you the Shop tour…

Oh, when driving over, take the I-210 as soon as you can… will be better that way…
... I don’t know if you can easily come in from the North… going over Cajon Pass… that driving would probably be a lot better than the LA traffic.
