#5?
Looks like a really fine re-furb.
$50.00?

Looks unused. I’d say $35.

Those #5 planes are very common.

$35 is better than $50. It’s probably worth $50 if its in your hand and its not worth $20 to find a cheaper one, go for it. I wouldn’t pay over $35 because I find them all the time. (although not typically this shiny and new)

I don’t think this is an old plane at all.

I can’t make it out, but I’m pretty sure this will say “Made in England”. They are still making them over there, and this looks just like some of the current new stock I’ve seen in photos. The one below sells for $60 at Global Industrial.

All that being said, it’s probably worth $50 if you want a decent user without much work. Personally, I’d rather spend a little less for an older, American-made version and fix it up myself.

I agree with Charlie, its a type 20 or later, probably later

It is not a new one. Look at the blade lever, it is not a bent piece of metal but the older pattern riveted type.

I’m not buying it. It’s on eBay if anyone is interested. I found one that I’m going to bid on at an auction. It has the rose colored wood but a good bit of rust. How much rust can they have and still be cleaned up to a nice looking plane?Thanks.

Wingate: Good catch. You’re right.

WV: They can get pretty rusty before they become unusable. As long as rust is not coming off in large flakes, you’re probably fine.
