Found these at an antique store, one for $20 and the other for $25. Both in good condition. Plan to sharpen the blades, tune ‘em up, and put them into service. These are my first planes, both in good shape.

A Stanley No. 4 smoothing plane:

!20090531-023!

A Wards Master 14” jack plane made by Stanley and sold by Montgomery Ward:

!20090531-020!

If the pictures won’t load (like they won’t for me), try these links:

Thanks for the kudos. We took a day trip to Hardy, AR, a picturesque little town in the Ozarks on the Spring River. There were lots of antique stores in the vicinity. While my wife and mom were looking for whatever they were looking for, I was secretly looking for old hand tools! There were a lot more planes, including wooden ones, but few in what I considered serviceable condition.
