Looking to start my hand tool journey with #4 or #5 Stanley Bailey (or equiv.) hand plane. Does not need to be brand spanking new as I do not mind restoring some things.

I do ask that the Tote and Knob are not damaged to an extent that replacement would be necessary.
Enough Length on the Iron that I can get a good grasp of the trade.
All parts are either original to the Plane or a Guarantee that all parts work with the plane you are trying to sell me.

Basically, don’t sell me a dud. Please :).

Anyway, I’m somewhat new to this trader so any more information required will be easily and speedily given through PM or in this thread so please do not hesitate to ask any questions of me as I will be asking many of you :).

Thanks for showing interest.
