Am I missing something? Apart from the broken handles, this looks to me like an excellent deal on some fixer-uppers. The only reason I’m not bidding is that I’m pretty full on the project list right now. Still, if nobody bids, I’m gonna jump in.

Don’t think you are missing anything, Charlie, though how those qualify as fishing equipment is a puzzle. Maybe someone has figured out how to turn a hand plane into a fish scaler?!?

I’ve got enough projects right now, as well, so will not be bidding. It’s really tempting, however, just to flip them.

Auction is too generically titled and put in the wrong category. You should jump on that. That 607 alone is normally well into triple digits.

Hmmm…. I never even noticed the fishing angle. I did my usual search for “wood planes” and there they were.

Good luck, Beth!

Some Hillbilly angler will be using those for the coup de gras.

Guess I better start searching for threads on how to repair tote horns! Thanks for the heads up. You need to contact the seller and ask for a hefty commission

Charlie, how many planes do you have? I’m guessing hundreds . . .

I kinda’ like the 9’ pontoon boat myself. Can’t get to Nevada this week though . . .
