All, in the past year I’ve gotten more into hand planing and have been looking for a jointer plane for quite some time to expand my collection. However, I’m getting frustrated at constantly being outbid while looking for decent ones on Ebay. Thus, I am reaching out to anyone here who is willing to part with one they no longer use. Im not looking for anything pristine, since this is isnt going to be a collectible or go on top of my mantle. I am simply looking for one that is in good shape that I could use often. I understand this is a big request so I am willing to pay a reasonable price for it and will not low ball any takers. I was primarily looking at stanley #7’s or miller falls 22” but not particularly brand specific. If anyone is interested please contact me.

thanks in advance

I have no planes to offer but I think the reasons for your lack of succes are due to the following:

1) Jointers are bigger and more scarce than block planes, smoothers, and jacks. So, bidders will go to greater lengths to buy these planes.

2) Because of Christmas and Hanukkah, buyers have more money and gift cards to spend, and are more willing and eager to spend this money right after the holidays.

So, you might have better luck a few months from now after the holiday buying frenzy dies off, or maybe you can find a fresh, cheap Buy It Now listing by a seller who doesn’t know how much a jointer can bring in.

Check out the “hand Plane of your dreams” forum.
Or the restoration before and after forum.
Thos folks do a great job of making planes look and perform as they should.

Afraid that my jointer planes are all with wooden bodies. Not sure if that is what the OP wants to try out

22” long with a 2-3/8” wide iron. Or..

Stanley #31: 24” long, but the iron is the same width as the Auburn 22.

Don’t have anything with an iron body over 18” long, just a DE6c ( and it ain’t for sale)

Nikki – thanks for the link, cool website, I’ll definitely be checking it out in the future, for now it seems most of their planes are already sold.

Bandit – those are some impressive looking planes, hopefully as I continue amassing more hand tools, I’ll get a chance to own some of those as well!

I have 2 or 3 number 7 and 1 or 2 size 8 Stanley planes in the spare pile in my shop. I bought these in summer of 14 to clean and sell with my daughter as a project but winter has won so they are in wait as my electrolysis tank gets so solid with no shop heat! If farm fresh interests you, holler back I can get you some better details/pictures. I do not recall if they are corrugated or smooth etc. but can look if you are interested.
