As I was driving home the other day I stopped at a garage sale. I bought four planes.
I have wanted a skew plane for a while. I don’t know what it’s worth. I will be using it, so worth isn’t that important.
I also bought this block plane. It doesn’t have a brand name visible. It looks like my new Stanley but it is slightly wider and has a nut that moves a lever to adjust the blade depth.
I also got a Bailey No 4, it looks okay but with just a little work it cuts nice shavings.
It sure is more handy than my newer Bailey jack plane.
There was also a Bailey No 7. It has a Stanley lever cap, but it cuts well.
I also got a Buck Brothers, and two Diston hand saws one is marked D-8 and the other is marked with a D with the eight inside the D.
I sure wouldn’t mind feed back on any of them. In fact I would appreciate any words of wisdom on truing the faces and such.
