Selling another one of my extra planes. This is a very nice Stanley Bailey #3 that I believe is a type 14. Has a SW iron that has been sharpened/honed and the back lapped flat and polished. The base has been re-painted and the Rosewood tote and knob were refinished. The plane has been tuned and is ready to start working.

There is a minor issue with the plane that I should mention. The lever cap is chipped a little at the end as you can see in the photos. This does not effect the use at all.

I am asking 50.00 (Shipping included)

Dan, that is a very reasonable price! If I needed # 3 I’d buy it.

Nice, Dan. I like the sideways “Made in the USA” text on that model. Good luck selling it.

Dan, I don’t remember ever seeing that sideways made in USA before. Its a great looking #3. I love the way you polish the back of your irons.

I usually flatten/polish about an inch of the iron from the edge. Its more then I need to but I find it easier to hold the iron flat when I have an inch of it on the stone or sandpaper. I only do the final couple grits at the very edge though.
