Topic tags/keywords: 7 plane

I got the plane bug a few years ago and I’ll be selling some of my duplicates and antiques. Our fellow Jocks estimated the price from $75 to $100. I’ll let our LJ’er have it for $75 plus shipping from AZ.

Record #7. I don’t know the age. The older Record planes have rosewood handles then they used beech and now they have plastic. The handles on this are dark like rosewood but I wouldn’t have guessed that they were rosewood.

This plane has a nice weight to it. I haven’t spend much time with it. I’m sure it could use a light tune up. I learned a lot about sharpening a blade AFTER I sharpened this one and I never went back and resharpened it.

The pictures are recent.

I’ll be selling the planes below as I upload pictures.

Thanks,

How much are you asking for the Stanley Bailey #7 (or is it 8?)

The Bailey is a #7. I removed the original iron and put a Hock Cryo iron in it. I still have the original but it’s at my other house. I think the plane is worth more with the original iron so I may wait a few months to sell it. The patents on it range from 1902 – 1910. Here are the pic’s of the Bailey.

I think the Bailey #7 is worth more with the Hock iron—whether you want to sell it with that iron is another question. You have a nice collection you’re selling. I like the Record cap with the thumbscrew.

You might be right. I’m not sure what the value is with and without the original iron to be honest. I may want to keep the Hock anyway.

I like the knurled knob on The record too. It beats hunting for a screwdriver.

That Bailey #7 is a nice plane. With the Hock blade, you should be able to get $125ish for it. With the original blade, I think I would pay #75 or so for it. The Hock blade new is $40 w/o shipping, so I think $125 is a fair price.

Good Luck!

I’d list the #7 for $150 with both irons. It looks like a type 11. If that’s true make sure you mention it. Then if the original iron is a v logo, mention that as well.

if its got 3 patents its a type 11. If it an earlier type without the frog adjuster screw then its back to $125 in my opinion.

I’m taking a shine to that #30-something transitional on the far left. Whatcha gotta get for it?

Based on Don’s comments the bailey #7 is a type 11.

I’m going to hold on to it until I can’ get my Iron’s together and make sure I know what I’m keeping and selling.

Poopiekat – I’ll start another post with the transitional plane so this one doesn’t get too confusing to follow.
