SOLD: Minty Stanley 71 router plane w/ box. Complete - Kansas City Fireslayer - 07-27-2020

I know this group leans more to the user side than collector but I thought I’d see if anyone had any interest in a Stanley 71 router plane I have for sale. Unfortunately, I had to pay a pretty penny for this one but I couldn’t leave it behind.

This 71 was bought new in 1955 from a hardware store in the Westport area of Kansas City. I have the original receipt. It’s USA made version and 99% mint. Original box has one small tear but great decal and color. All three cutters and Stanley manual. Fence with screw and original washer. 100% original and complete. Hard to find them like this. Please email me at Firemedic669@hotmail.com for pics. I can text or email them. Price is $225 including free USPS shipping. Thanks!

Damon

These things are in high demand! Hard to find one minty. For a collector this is a deal. For a user I'd personally buy a non minty one and fix it up, or invest in veritas or LN. Someone should definitely add this 71 to their collection! Smile

Guess I am the odd ball. I use all my collector tools...

It's like buying a classic car. You have it to drive not park it...

If I had the extra 225 I'd buy it... good luck on the sell..

Hope this works. It seems the IPhone will let you change file sizes now. It should for the price? Too bad the pics are ***** eyed?

That’s for you Admiral!! Next time I’ll try to figure out how to straighten them.

I’m working about 1 mile from the hardware store that sold it and the construction company that bought it back in 1955. If they catch on fire, I’ll be there. The old hardware store was recently turned into 4-5 story apartments with commercial on first level. It’s an empty lot on google maps street view.

My gosh, what a beauty! I was three months old when that sold the first time. Wish I had aged nearly as well as that has!

Wow, that's a beauty, really nice find, and local too!  Thanks for the tool porn.  Gotta change my shorts! Smile
