I don’t know what you paid, so it’s hard to say. Quite a few project planes, though. Got spare parts sitting around to make some of these complete / useable?

I see a complete smoother, 2 jacks and 4 block planes. All little projects but imo, thats a good thing. Youll learn a lot and have a good fleet of starters when all is said and done.

Under $75 and ya did good. At $100 you did ok. Under $50 and youre a seasoned vet.

How did you do? Well I don’t know, depends up much you spent! If you spent a tenner then that’s pretty good, but if you paid £3,000 then I’d say you were a little off target…

$25 for the lot = o-k (and I mean just ok)

over $50 = not to nifty
