Sorry to hear that this episode never even took place.

Anyway, that is a large scale rabbet plane, aka Carriage maker’s plane

(with 177 posts, I’ll bet you’ve heard/seen this before: “No pics/didn’t happen”)

well you can use it for rabbetting, or just cleaning up close to a wall/edge of some sort, or joint.

I didn’t know that they had nickers.. How much did you pay for it? Front knobs are easy to come by. This is a very nice plane..

Someone said the same thing about the Stanley Bailey #64 i got for $15.00 Since the front knob was missing on the 101/2 i got it for $10.00 also found a Bailey #3 but didn’t buy it. I’ll posts picts tonight. It’s just a honey hole for handplanes !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! The way the tote and knob looks, do they swivel side to side?

I got one once at an estate sale for I think $5. I saw people
in front of me walking out with tools and and I was like
“man, this sucks”... and then that plane was passed over.

I sold it after awhile. It’s a useful plane for carpentry
work if you want to do fitted things or tenons. Admittedly
that’s not a style of carpentry many people find a need
for these days. I didn’t find it very useful in making
furniture.

Wow, what a score.. That’s a big YOU SUCK!!!!
There are many sources of knobs, either original (from a different plane) or after market new knobs.
And generally the cabinet maker planes do have handles and knobs that go from side to side to avoid the wall ( drawer side, or interior cabinet side, etc). So yes they do move back and forth. Same with the cabinet maker’s scraper plane. Which I would like to get…

Enjoy your new plane, and please do post pics….

My mistake! Without my glasses what i thought was a 10 1/2 Is a 10 1/4. After searching for a 10 1/2 with cutters and not finding one i looked at the numberat again.

10-1/4? That just went from a you suck to a YOU REALLY SUCK!

Between this and the #64, I’m going to have to start tailing you around on your rust hunts.

Congrats on the find.

Definitely tougher to find than 10 1/2—nice!

This one sports a tilting front knob and will prove tougher to find.

Checking the sold listings on ebay is usually the best guide for current prices. The condition and missing knob hurts the value, but it is still worth quite a bit.
