These are all planes I bought last week from the estate of a master cabinet maker. They were all sitting in a tool chest for years. Not sure how long they’ve been idle. I pulled a few things out, now I’m selling the rest. I think the prices are fair, but if I’m way out of line let me know. I’d prefer a local buyer near Louisville, KY, but will ship if necessary. Buyer to pay actual shipping. See pictures for more info.

Bedrock 602 $500



80 Cabinet scraper $30

5C $40

78’s (I have two, one with ‘83 patent date, one with ‘10) $50 ea


220 Low angle block $20

Spokeshaves $20 ea (one is a 17, the other a 52)

Tool chest $50
Dimensions are 8.5” deep x 34.5” wide x 16” tall.



Old tool chest and tools $200
I built some new trays to replace the broken/missing ones.
Includes saws, files, chisels, bits and brace, Miller Falls egg beater and bits, squares, etc.
Dimensions are 11” deep x 28” wide x 23” tall.







Feel free to call if you’ve got questions.

No, I really meant $500. It’s a very rare Bedrock. I’ve seen them on eBay (all shiny and refurbished) go for as much as $1,000.

Values can be all over the place. Here’s one that was sold for parts at $274 (damaged, not the original tote, etc)

you are right, I have seen that many times, sometimes sellers list the plane in the wrong category or with a wrong title like “planer”, or simply the auction ends the wrong day. Its a great plane anyway!

Great score on the tools, Cory, and a beautiful collection at that…..One thing though: When you replaced the original drawers with the ones you built, the value of the tool chest and tools went way down on the buying market…..True collectors want all original….It’s like buying an old pre-war instrument, such as a Martin guitar…..If it’s all original, the price is up there…..if not, maybe 1/2…...Just my .2 input…..

Rick: thanks. You’re totally right abt the “new” pieces. The old drawers were either completely destroyed or missing. Of course, I’m happy to remove them and throw all the items back in the bottom where I found them!
