I’ve recently started getting into hand plans and have purchased a few wood river plans from Woodcraft. Today I picked a Lie Nielson 60 1/2 low angel block plane, a Stanley 92 shoulder plane and a Stanley flat bottom spoke shave on Criagslist for $90! I can’t wait to sharpen the Lie Nielson and use it tomorrow.

I’m super excited!

You suck big time.

Most of us NEVER score on C list.

I check everyday for hand planes, I’ve never seen a L.N. plane on the Houston Craigslist before.

The 92 is worth at the least what you spent on everything.

You suck, suck, suck. The only LNs that I see on CL are priced within 10% of retail.

Okay, now that my 15 seconds of jealousy are over, congrats on the find!

I saw a LN plane on my local Craigslist, just once. The seller knew what they were worth, so no crazy deals to be had there. (sigh)

That is incredible. You are going to love that block plane. I was just lecturing my wife the other day about how awesome that block plane was and that it was worth every dime I spent on it. Awesome find!
