Topic tags/keywords: question planer plane

I got these three tools on craigslist for 25.00 bucks! the two planes are supposed to be from vietnam. He said he picked them up there many years ago when he was stationed out there in the sixties and couldn’t remember where he got the marking gauge. there are no marks on the tools stating any company or anything other than some initials on the marking gauge “BH” I think the planes might be of Bamboo but I cant be for sure because of the stain, but they are heavy duty for sure, if anybody has any knowledge of what these might be made of that would be interesting to know. thanks !

Those are real beauties, Steve. Congrats on the score! I can’t help you on the wood type though.

They look pretty good. No idea what type of wood, but looks like $25 well spent. Congrats on the score.

congrat´s with the score :-)
one thing you can doubt is that they wuold be made of bamboo
since in that region like the rest of asia they have alot of different
redish hardwood trees with names that nearly unknown to us
but will be in the future since some of them already show up as floor wood
now that the rainforest in brasille is downsied to a critical level
