Stanley 4 Square Junior Jack (5 1/4)Stanley 4 Square Junior Jack (5 1/4)   A nice example of a Stanley 4 Square Junior Jack plane.  It is basically a 5 1/4 junior jack plane not marked with a number.  Stanley offered the 4 Square line of planes during the depression to appeal to the common man / homeowner for a bit less money.  Many of the 4 square line of tools were basically the same quality as the regular line, just marked differently.  Mainly a marketing ploy.  The main differences are the toe and stippled lever cap are marked Stanley.   The handle still has 80% or so of the 4 Square decal.  The jappaning is pretty nice.

Stanley # 5 1/2 H  Heavy Jack PlaneStanley # 5 1/2 H  Heavy Jack Plane  This is a pretty hard to find Stanley bench plane.  They were first introduced in 1902 and production ended in 1924.  They were produced mainly to satisfy or influence the English market so as to be closer in weight or heft to English infil panel planes of the same size.  Basically the sole and side rails were cast thicker and the plane is heavier because of it. They are only proper when marked on the casting with a H.  Stanley also offered these H series planes in the 4 1/2 size.

This plane is all original and in nice overall condition.   It appears to be a type 9 w/o the external frog adjusting feature.  The cutter has over 3/4 of life left.   The rosewood handle has been glued and has an interesting repair running up the back of it.  It is solid and looks fine.  The japanning is 90% or so.  The throat is nice.  With a replacement cutter and different but proper handle this unusual plane would easily rate as fine.    Different & nice!!

Good +  . . . . . $1000.00        SOLD!





Stanley #5 1/2 Type 12 Extra Wide Jack PlaneStanley #5 1/2 Type 12 Extra Wide Jack Plane   This is a great size plane.  When properly tuned and sharpened they can move a lot of wood in a short time.  Not to big, and not too small, a bit heavier than the 5, and a bit wider.  It use to be one of my favorites.   

This plane has been tastefully cleaned and is in very nice condition.   It is ready for the bench or shelf.

Good +  . . . . . $125.00        SOLD!





Stanley #6 Type 10-11 Jointer Plane  This super condition plane dates from 1910-1912 and does not conform exactly to the type study but i seriously doubt it has been changed out.  The condition is second to none.  The finish is great the wood is great the cutter is nice.  There is not rust or pitting to speak of, and this plane is all original and has never been cleaned.  It has seen little or no use and would rate as excellent / fine on any condition chart.  The throat is perfect,  the japanning is 95% or better.  There will be no complaints about the condition.  These Fore planes are good for those who do not want to push the larger #7 or #8 all day,  and the reduced weight and length make a difference later in the day.  This example is near perfect and exhibits just some minor shelf tarnish from sitting too long.   It is ready to go back to work.  A Nice One!!

Fine . . . . . SOLD



Stanley #6 Fore PlaneStanley # 6 Type 13 Fore Plane  The collector I got the current listings of planes from liked his tools looking nice.  He both used them, and displayed them.  He was from Southern California and was buying back in the 70's and 80's when there was a lot of interest, and a lot of dealers offering some very nice merchandise.  Proper cleaning of bench planes can be pretty simple, or it can be pretty involved.  It is almost an art in a sense, and it can be done well, or poorly.  This fellow had a eye, and bought it nice, or made it nice, because nearly every one of the planes I got from him has been very nice tastefully cleaned and they look great.  This one is no exception.   .   

This plane has been tastefully cleaned, and lapped  and is in very nice condition.   It is ready for the bench or shelf.

Good +  . . . . . $125.00      SOLD!




Stanley Bedrock # 606 Fore PlaneStanley Type 1 # 6 Fore Plane  This is a type 1 Stanley # 6 dating from 1867 - 1869.  The rear tote is probably a replacement and the properly marked cutter is a bit short  The rest of the plane is pretty nice and looks to be "right" including the banjo cap.  A hard to find early plane that will be a welcome addition to any advanced collection.

Good   . . . . . $295.00          SOLD!!







Stanley # 6 Fore PlaneStanley # 6 Fore Plane   This is a type 13 dating from 1925 - 1928.  Full length proper era cutter.  Good wood.  No condition issues.   Nice enough for the collection or put it back to use.

Fine . . . . . . . $250.00     SOLD!!







Stanley # 7 C Corrugated Bottom Jointer PlaneStanley # 7 C Corrugated Bottom Jointer Plane  This looks to be a type 10 - 11 with a slightly later lever cap which could be "right" as Stanley did not adhere to type studies as they produced planes using parts from different eras to fill orders.  This is a well known fact.

The japanning is 95% or better.   It is not pitted or rusty.  Nice full length cutter with proper era marked cutter. Good wood.  Good throat.  No casting damage or other problems.  It has the external frog adjusting feature.  Tuned and sharpened it will be a great user at a fraction of the cost of a new plane by one of the current makers.  Ready to go back to work.

Fine . . . . . . . $175.00    SOLD!!





Stanley # 7 Jointer PlaneStanley # 7 Jointer Plane The condition of this Stanley #7 smooth jointer plane is second to none.  It is a sweetheart era and looks as though it was never used.  Others may cost more, but none will operate better than a regular old Stanley bench plane when properly tuned.   It will make a great user or is nice enough for the shelf.. 

Fine . . . . . $195.00        SOLD!





Stanley # 7C Jointer PlaneStanley # 7C Jointer Plane This corrugated Stanley #7 jointer plane is very nice.  It has seen little if any use.  The original buyer paid special attention to condition, and he picked a nice one here.  No apologies here.   It  will make a great user.

Stanley Type 2 # 7 Jointer PlaneStanley Type 2 # 7 Jointer Plane  This is a nice example of a hard to find plane. Even more so in this nice condition.  Everything is proper.

Stanley manufactured these early type 2 planes between the years 1869 and 1872.  The main difference between a type 1 & type 2 plane is the shape of the spring on the solid lever cap.  Both type 1 & type 2 planes are very uncommon and hard to find.  They are a testament to American workmanship and quality.  Stanley carried on that tradition for a number of years making small changes to the design and so we have type studies that allow one to pretty closely date these tools.   A fine example that deserves a place on the shelf.

Fine . . . . . . . $295.00    SOLD!!

Stanley Type 4 Pre Lateral # 7 Jointer PlaneStanley Type 4 Pre Lateral # 7 Jointer Plane  This is a nice example of a hard to find plane. Type 4 planes were offered for about 10 years beginning in 1874.  The main differences between type 1 & type 2 planes and the type 4 are that the lever cap is now recessed, and the brass adjusting nut is no longer solid.

This plane is in nice condition.  Lots of life left in the proper cutter,  Handle and knob are OK.  Little or no rust or pitting, just a nice even 100 + year patina.  A nice example that deserves a place on the shelf or can be put back to use.

Good +  . . . . . . . $140.00     SOLD!!
