Here are a few more planes taken out of retirement to go back to work. These are all Stanley.

[sold] First up is a Bailey No.3. This is a type 19 in near new condition. I really did not have to do much to this one to get it ready to smooth. It is clean, lubricated, sharpened and looking for lumber.

Asking $45

Next we have a No.5 type 16. This one has a repaired crack in the tote. It is not the best repair job I have seen, but the tote is solid and does not move in use. The bed appears to have been re-painted at some point. It has a corrugated sole with a hanging hole in the heel. It is a good user, just not a beauty queen.

Asking $50

[sold] And another No.5 type 16. The tote on this one has a really well done repair. It is hard to see in the pictures. The tote is very solid. The knob on this one is beautiful, with hardly a scratch in the finish. This has a corrugated sole with some staining. The base on this one also appears to have been re-done, but it is an excellent job, including the frog.

Asking $50

The last one for this post is a Stanley Gage No.5. This is an early model of the Stanley Gage series. The base is cast with No 5 at the heel, not No. G5.

This plane has the battle scars from many years of hard use. Even with the scars, it still works as well now as it did then, and has many more productive years of service ahead.

There is a chip missing from the left side of the base casting. The sole of the plane has some staining and shallow… not pits, but something you can feel with your fingertips. A good lapping would certainly clean that up.

The tote has a tightly repaired crack and a small chip off of the horn. The knob has a surface crack that does not go all the way through to the center hole. It also has a chip missing at the base.

That’s about it for the bad stuff. The plane really does works great as it sits.

Because of the less than optimal condition, I am asking for $65 for this old work horse.

Any of these planes should fit in a USPS medium flat rate box for $12.35.
Pick up here at my shop in Willow Spring, NC is OK, if you happen to be in the neighborhood.

If my prices seem out of line, make an offer.

I do have quite a few other planes available for sale. What are you looking for?

Yup. Just picked up one No.7c, type 15 the other day. Haven’t yet had a chance to look it over, but at first glance it looks pretty good. Send me a PM with your email address and I can send you some full size pictures so you can do your own evaluation.

I also have a (probably) Birmingham No.7 if you are interested in something a little more rare. :)

Mark… I’m also looking for a #7 or #8.

I’ve been stalking eBay and even made a couple bids… I just hate the rat race feel of ebay. I’d rather pay an agreed upon price for an item. So hit me up if you get a user of either variety. Doesn’t need to be a collectible. Functional, in good, workable condition. A sweet one won’t scare me away though.

The No.3 plane has been spoken for.

I have another No.3 that needs to be cleaned and sharpened. Should be ready to go soon.

Your prices are very reasonable compared to the prices I have paid on Ebay for some planes.
