The top left is a dowel jig. The top right one looks like a #48 tongue and grove plane, the middle is a small #101 block plane(I own 2), the bottom is a #78 rabbet plane or moving fillister plane(I own 1). It looks like you have 3 fences for your #78. I would need closer pictures of each to help with value.

You have a no. 78 pattern duplex rabbet plane, 3 fences, a depth
stop, a little block plane, perhaps a Stanley 101.

The nickel plated plane I’ve see before I think but can’t remember
what it does.

What’s the label on the box say?

Thanks TechTeacher!
I probably have no need for these so I wont make an offer on them(seling as a lot). Just in case I do have the urge; whats a good price to pay?

I’d start at $50. You can probably piece it out and sell the
stuff on ebay for more than $100 if you want to go to
the trouble.

The dowel jig may be worth something to a collector
due to the box.

I’d pay that just for the #48, it’s a joy of a plane to use. The doweling jig is $35 (safe retail), the #78 is at least $45 if complete (and it appears to be). The #101 is $20 if it has an iron and cap. If neither, $5 for that maybe.

+1 to Smitty on values (as long as the #48 is complete).

Edit: If you do decide to buy them and don’t want the #48, let me know.

The dowelling jig looks like a Stanley #60 which is a bit rarer than the #59.

I’ll pay $60 plus shipping for the lot if you’re interested, Breaker…

$50 would be a steal. I am looking for a #48 for my collection, the green color is perplexing me.

Is the #48 painted that color normally?

I will check it out then. If they are asking too much I will let it go.

Is it just me, or does it look like perhaps the casting in from of the grip on the #48 has been repaired? Actually, now that I look around, I’m putting my vote for a #49.

^ Ed, you might be on to something there… And the #49, while not exactly rare, is less common than the #48 and carries a higher price tag by maybe 15-20% or so…
