Hey guys and gals. Here is one of the more collectable Stanley planes, and in very collectable condition. I was going to keep this plane in my own collection, but have decided to offer it for sale here to Lumberjocks. I have included many pics but will answer any questions you may have. This is a true sweetheart era plane, dating from the early 1920’s. It retains most of the original decal on the tote, has a full length blade and very little wear from use. The beautiful rosewood knob and tote are free of cracks and solid to the plane. It does have about 15 – 20% loss of jappaning, and some minor pitting on the blade as can be seen. Despite this, the plane functions perfectly, as new. I honed the blade to 8000 grit and it takes uber fine shavings, as pictured. This is Stanley’s second smallest smoothing plane, and smooth it does, the surface of the hard maple I planed is glossy smooth.
I have many other planes, saws, braces, bits, and marking tools that I will be listing in the future, so if you are looking for something specific, let me know and I can certainly help you out. I can work out better prices on multiple tool purchases as well.
Thanks for looking! Ryan
