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.
