Saw an add on craigslist for a single handplane, but the guy mentioned that he had about 40-50 he would like to sell. So I went. He mostly had post-WWII stanleys (blue ones and Handymans) craftsman, and other cheaper planes, mostly #4 sized, about 4 block planes, and about 10-12 handsaws, and a hand drill that looked nice, but needed a new wooden handle. He was advertising a Newer (last 20-30 years) Millers Falls #6 sized plane (18” long), but I didn’t want it. (If anybody does and lives near Cincinatti, I can point you to the add).
But here’s what I picked up for a TOTAL of $60 (I’ve cleaned and somewhat tuned up the 2 smallest planes):
-Craftsman adjustable mouth block plane that works really well.
