Topic tags/keywords: fulton double end plane hand plane

I’m having a hard time finding much info on a nice Fulton double end plane. It’s in good condition, asking $32. I am at the antique store right now. Posting this from my phone.

I would give that for it, personally.

I don’t know how collectible that sort of plane is, but
I haven’t seen them often.

It’s not likely to be a great performer as a standard
block plane but when you need the bullnose feature
it’s there.

Quick glance at ebay shows that price in line with what is listed. The only one that popped up under the completed listings went for $35.

I’d leave it for that. Its not the handiest plane to use, and the price is only so-so at best.

Made a mistake… Set my coffee mug down somewhere… Now I’m hunting for that.
What about $9 for this block plane (kind of what I’m looking for) only markings is LAKESIDE on the cutter.

if you need one, $9 is probably about what its worth. As a user it will be ok. No adjustable mouth and its a lakeside. Lakeside is a cheaper brand sold by Wards. At $9 you won’t loose much, but your not getting a top of the liner either. It can be a decent user for edges and camfering. Eventually you’ll want to upgrade it to something better.

I went with the cheaper LAKESIDE for now, probably won’t use it much but when I need one they are nice to have. I will want to upgrade someday. I have a Stanley No. 110 that is nothing special ($5) but when I went to clean it up the threads got stripped. Apparently the rust was making it work. Now it’s a decoration. This lake side has better adjustment anyhow.

I also bought an older metal ruler/foldable tape. The only reason I did that is because it was really rusty and I wanted to see how well I could clean it up. Rust removal practice I guess. (The Works Toilet Bowl Cleaner, I think that I will do a video for it)

Thanks for the rapid responses everyone! I told them to let the vendor know that if he really wants to move that Fulton I would take it if he lowered it a bit. It is still, in my mind, a rather unique plane.

Edit: Note to everyone, never set anything of yours down in an antique mall, 15 minutes later and I was walking back up to the till with a good bit of dizziness and my coffee mug.
