Topic tags/keywords: plane

Here’s some Millers Falls hand planes I’ve decided to let go. I’m pretty sure they are all type 2s. They all have cocobolo handles (no ugly orange stain).
The are all in very good shape with near full length blades. Probably 98% jappaning. Sharpened, and ready to go.

Only flaws I know about. The no8 has a crack on the back of the tote. It doesn’t go all the way through…and I honestly can tell if it’s the wood, or just the finish.
The tote on the no9 is repaired. It was broke near the base. I epoxied it and doweled it from the bottom. It’s solid.

Prices include shipping in the US. Paypal preferred. If your not happy with them for any reason, I just ask you to ship them back and I’ll refund. No worries.

PM if interested.

No 8 (3 size) $45 sold
No 9c (4 size) $45 sold
No 18c (6 size) $60 sold

Hey Red – is that smaller one a smoother? I’ve been looking for a good smoothing plane and know you know your stuff. If so, would you be around this weekend at all?

EDIT – Either the 8 or 9 – I’m interested in your opinion. I currently use a Bailey # 5 for most work and then a Bailey #7 for jointing. Would like to add a smoother to the mix to round it out. Don’t really care about brand continuity.

Steve- Both of the smaller planes would be considered smoothers. It’s really a preference. I use a no 3 size for smoothing small pieces, and a no 4 size for things a little bigger. Only a 1/4” difference in blade width.

I should be around Sunday if you want to try one out.

Dang. I bought a Stanley #6C already otherwise I’d take you up on the No. 18.

I can attest that the No. 8 is a sweet little smoother. I’ve used mine quite a bit.

Red-If Steve takes the 8 or 9c, I’ll take the other one but Steve can have first shot at which one he wants, if he takes both good for him and I’ll keep looking!

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to BigRed. I bought the 18C and couldn’t be happier. He was a true gentleman to deal with and I would never hesitate to buy from him again. Thanks, Flyboy
