If anyone out there this morning is looking for a #7, this one looks pretty decent for a current bid of $27+.

It’s not easy to find one of these with a intact tote.

I’m glad one of us got it!

I didn’t need another #7, but this is the condition I usually try to jump on…. ugly, but with nothing broken. This one looks like it will clean up beautifully, Russell.

I think I’ll keep it and use it. I may not clean it up, just the frog and sharpen it up. I only recondition the ones I’m selling.

I don’t blame you. Personally, I just gotta make ‘em shiny… but that’s just me. :-)

Thanks for the post. Maybe next time I’ll notice it in time to buy! Daddy needs a jointer…

Bro, with shipping it came to $54 which is a good price I think. Now I’ll go to an estate sale and see one better for like $5.
