HANDTOOLS: #4 1/2; #12; #9 1/4
#9
  
I've got a few worthy tools for folks who use them......


First up is a T17 Stanley #4 1/2; heavier castings typical of wartime planes; short iron, but enough meat left to do work, I've reset the bevel, flattened the back, and sharpened on the tormek and you can see how it performs.  I also tuned the chipbreaker so it mates properly with the iron.  99% japanning, sole is dandy as well as the mouth, wood solid.  All in all a really nice heavy smoother, if you don't have a 4 1/2, you don't know what you are missing.  A very nice plane.  Yours for $65 plus shipping, pics:



























Next up is a Stanley #12 Scraper Plane; Sweetheart vintage, has a virtually full SW blade, good sole, works like it should, 80%+ japanning, I love the rosewood handle, which is solid, all in all a very nice user plane, keep your fingers from getting burned using a card scraper, buy this plane!  Yours for $65 plus shipping, you won't regret it.  Pics:



















More in next reply, I ran over the pic limit.

Last but not least is a Stanley 6 1/4 block plane; the original "apron" plane, this one has 95%++ japanning, nice full iron, good sole and mouth, a worthy addition to your kit; yours for $19 plus shipping, can't beat that with a stick.  Pics:
















First PM with an unequivocal "I'll take it" gets priority, and please include your shipping address so I can quote postage and print up mailing labels.  I don't have paypal, so payment by USPS money order please, unless I know you from the forum, then checks are ok.

As always, quality user tools that I would own, given the once over by someone who knows what's good and what's not, priced reasonably for those who would actually use them.  

Thanks for looking.

1 hour, 12 minutes

What is: How long does it take to sell a nice Stanley 4-1/2

I can't speak for the rest of you but if something is on my radar and Admiral posts one, I jump, and never regretted the decision.  Wink
