I have a Stanley #8C jointer for sale. This has been my personal jointer for the last couple of years. I just bought a type 11 to take its place. I restored this back when I first got it.

Its been stripped and painted
Soles is flat
frog is flat
Iron needed some work, so look at the pictures, but it works great (angle was way to steep, and it hasn’t been ground out yet. A little each time goes away)
iron has a small camber
i just refinished the knob and tote this morning, Brush oil and wax. Both are original rosewood
the tote has an epoxied repair (see photo)

Asking price is $170 and that includes shipping to the continental US.
To sweeten the deal, if you see anything else here you’d like, take 50% off and shipping is the same (except for the Type 11 #5, but PM me and we’ll make a deal)

Thanks Dave. I figured it would be gone by now. After that last bunch you acquired, I’d image you’re good for a while!

If the postage to Australia 6071 is not costly and I can find where the other tools are sale so as to take advantage of the 50% discount then I will purchase the plane
thanks

Unfortunately the on listed here was sold a while ago. This listing was from February. I do have another, but it hasn’t been restored yet, and I won’t have time for a while (unless somebody buys it restored).

I’m also not keen on shipping outside the states. I’ve been burnt buy that before and so have my customers.
