Topic tags/keywords: planer shaping finishing refurbishing sanding rustic traditional stanley bailey

Hey guys,
I got handed down 4 hand planers in my grandfathers garage when he passed. I don’t want or need them. I first came to this site for tips on cleaning them up before selling. Now I see some of you are interested in restoring yourselves. If anyone is interested in mine I would love to help you help me. ;)
I just took a quick pic. We haven’t touched them so they look rough.
1-Stanley Bailey No. 3 1929-20
top of handle was chipped off but still looks nice and works.
1-Bailey No.4
In good shape, nothing seems broken or missing.
1-Sargent No. 409 New Haven, CT USA
Some cracking, some paint smears. good condition otherwise.
1- Trustworthy
Handle loose otherwise good shape.

I can give better photos if you are interested
brookeydoo@gmail.com

Asking $90 for all plus shipping.

Ouch!
Sound a little steep.
Most LJ guys knows too much about plane and is more interested in a bargain.
For the price, I would of prefer it too be already refurblished and ready to go to work.

The picture didn’t help your case either.

I seriously had no idea what they are worth. That’s kinda why Im here. I will post some better photos this evening when I get home. I’m not opposed to lowering the price. Not really the kind of girl to take on a restoration project, would love to find them a home where they are appreciated.

brookeydoo, Here is what I think you could expect from an typical ebay sale. If you post better pictures we can update if something looks different.

depending on type and condition, rough prices would be:

1-Stanley Bailey No. 3 between $15-25
top of handle was chipped off but still looks nice and works.
1-Bailey No.4 between $15-$40
In good shape, nothing seems broken or missing.
1-Sargent No. 409 between $15-$20
Some cracking, some paint smears. good condition otherwise.
1- Trustworthy between $8-$15

Where would you be shipping them from brookeydoo? That would make a difference – international shipping can be quite expensive. It sounds like you are in the US, but you never know around here.

The #4 appears to have a broken sidewall, far side from where the pic was taken.

I think Don’s estimates are about right. You might try selling on your local CL. I doubt very much that you will be able to get anywhere near $90 for the lot.

If Smitty is right, and it looks like the sidewall is broke, the the #4 is a parts plane. It then about $10 if you find somebody who needs parts. Flea market price for a broken #4 around here is about $5.

PRICE IS NOT $90. I guess if anyone wants them make an offer. Doesn’t seem like I will be getting rid of these anytime soon.

Right now, I am bidding on a couple “parts” planes, as i need parts to complete a later model #5. Handles i can make, things like frog, and other metal parts, no. There IS a LJ fellow looking for parts for a Number three sized plane. Might look him up, as well.
