Selling a type 8 Stanley #7C plane that would make a great user for someone needing a jointer. Found it in an antique shop and wanted to give it a chance to be a user again instead of wall art. It has been cleaned, de-rusted and tuned up. Japanning on the body was mostly gone, so it was stripped and repainted. Sole has been lapped reasonably flat and the iron is sharpened straight with eased corners. Wood was sanded down and finished with just wax. Some of the naturally darkest rosewood I’ve ever run across on a plane.

Asking $90 plus shipping.

Test runs show that it’s ready to work.

Edge jointing white oak.

Full width, see through shavings.

Good price. I didn’t pay much less than that for a #8 recently that needs a good bit of cleaning.

It’s got to the point that I don’t like to use my 8 much. Dang thing wears me out.

Looks like you got it, Paul.

And I’ve got a #6, so I figured a #7 wasn’t a big enough step up from there. So, I’ll use the #6 for shorter stuff and the #8 for longer.

I like my #8, and it doesn’t wear me out too bad, but I just seem to have better control with my #7 than I do with my 8. Unless it’s for flattening a really big piece like my workbench top, or edge jointing a really long board, then I reach for my 7.

I have two 7’s, one cambered one straight. Both pull a fine shaving, the 8 gets used for the shoot board and the WIP bench.
