For sale is this Stanley Bailey No.3 smooth plane.
It appears to be a type 16 in very good condition. The base casting has the ‘Y’ shaped frog receiver typical of a type 19.
The cutting iron is about full length and sharp.
There is some staining on the sides and sole. The sides and sole are smooth.
The knob and tote have a couple of paint spatters. There are no cracks or breaks or repairs that I can find.
Most of the japanning remains, just a few chips here and there.
Most of the nickle plate on the lever cap is gone.
Asking $50 + shipping. This will fit in a medium flat rate box for $12.35.
Pickup at my shop in Willow Spring, NC is available. Interesting trades will be considered.
