Stanley # S4 Steel Smooth PlaneStanley # S4 Steel Smooth Plane  Stanley introduced there line of steel planes in the mid 20's when they stopped making the liberty bell line of planes.  They offered them in the number 4 size, as well as the number 5 and a high angle block plane, and a high angle denoted as the S18.    They were only made for 15 or so years.  They were aimed at schools, and for applications where there was a likelihood of them being dropped as the steel body would not crack or break like the cast iron counterpart.   A nice plane that will be a great user or is nice enough for the shelf

Good +  . . . . . .$95.00       SOLD!





Stanley S4 Steel Smooth PlaneStanley S4 Steel Smooth Plane Stanley first started offering this model plane in 1926, and ended production with the beginning of WWII in 1941.  Meant for use in locals such as schools or manual training classes where damage was likely to occur if dropped as the steel sides would not crack or break.   As is typical there is not much paint left.  Front knob looks to be a replacement, and there is a bit of loss to the top of the rear handle.  The rest is OK.      

Good  . . . . . $95.00     SOLD!!







Stanley # 104 Liberty Bell Steel Smooth PlaneStanley # 104 Liberty Bell Steel Smooth Plane  The #104 was first issued in 1876 to commemorate the Centennial. It was discontinued in 1919 after WWI. It has a steel body and the typical adjuster for the cutter that liberty bell planes have.  It is not damaged. It is the size of a #4.  Has a full length proper marked cutter.  Nice wood, and it will clean to be very nice..

Good + . . . . .$80.00        SOLD!







Stanley # 104  Liberty Bell Steel Smooth PlaneStanley # 104  Liberty Bell Steel Smooth Plane  The #104 was first issued in 1876 to commemorate the Centennial.  It was discontinued in 1919 after the war.  WWI that is.  It has a steel body.  From the cutter logo we can assume this is a type 2 and dates from before 1907.  It has been tastefully, and carefully cleaned and rehabbed.  It looks great. 

Fine  . . . . . .$120.00         SOLD!






Stanley # 105 Liberty Bell Steel Jack PlaneStanley # 105 Liberty Bell Steel Jack Plane  The #105 was first issued in 1876 to commemorate the Centennial.

Stanley # S5 Steel Jack PlaneStanley # S5 Steel Jack Plane  This S5 Jack Plane dates from the mid 20's. They were only made from 126 to 1942, and in about 1930 stopped using rivets as this one has.  It has a glued rosewood handle and beyond that is in overall nice condition.  It will clean, and with a different handle will be suitable for the collection or use it as is. 

Good + . . . . .$150.00      SOLD!






Stanley # A5 Aluminum Jack PlaneStanley # A 5 Aluminum Jack Plane  This A 5 Jack Plane dates from the mid 20's to mid 30's.  It has a great rosewood handle and is in overall very nice condition.  There are not any deep scratches or other problems.  It is all original and very nice.  These Aluminum planes are more a collectible in most peoples mind for several reasons.  They are lighter, softer, and prone to scratches.  Improper storage will result in "rot".  A nice example for the collection!!

Good + . . . . .  $45.00     SOLD!!






Stanley Aluminum Planes3 Stanley Aluminum Bench Planes  Stanley made and sold a few different Aluminum planes and other tools back in the 20's and 30's.  They made an aluminum version of the #18 block plane, the  #78 and the #45, some levels, a brace, as well as these three different size bench planes, the A4, the A5,  & the A6.  

Each of these planes is pretty nice with no major detractions.  They are quite soft, and can oftentimes be found with deep scratches in the soles or sides, but these 3 examples are pretty nice.  Each has been fitted with one of Stanley's aftermarket aluminum handles that were typically offered separately.   I suppose the collector felt they better represented the flavor of the aluminum planes and he probably swapped them out just for the look.

Left #A4 ..... Good . . . . . $100.00    SOLD!

Middle  A5  .........Good+. . . . . . $120.00    SOLD!

Right .......... Good+. . . . . $175.00    SOLD!




Stanley # A4 Smooth PlaneStanley # A4 Smooth Plane    Stanley made and sold a few different Aluminum planes and other tools back in the 20's and 30's.  They made an aluminum version of the #18 block plane, the  #78 and the #45, some levels, a brace, as well as these three different size bench planes, the A4, the A5,  & the A6.   This #A4's  Rosewood handle has been refinished and the sides and sole have been carefully lapped.  It looks great. The cutter is full length.   It is nice with some minor nickel losses. A tough plane to find anymore.  Especially in this nice condition.   

Fine  . . . . . .$125.00       SOLD!




Stanley #A4 Aluminum Smooth PlaneStanley #A4 Aluminum Smooth Plane  This unusual plane is in super original condition and has all the original and proper parts that it should.   The Rosewood handle and knob are very nice as well.  It appears that this plane has seen little use and has only a few cosmetic scratches on the sole and sides.   Stanley made these Aluminum bench planes in 3 sizes during the 20's and into the 30's, but due to a combination of the times, and the problems encountered in the design they were never very popular and not heavily produced.  During this period they also made a version of their  #45, #78,  and a few other pieces out of Aluminum and this exotic series of Stanley tools can be an interesting challenge to try to completely assemble.   Super!!

Fine . . . . .$95.00      SOLD




Stanley A #6 Aluminum Fore PlaneStanley A #6 Aluminum Fore Plane  The Stanley A 6 is a tough plane to in this nice condition.  It is all proper, correct and very nice.  They were offered for lees than 15 years back in the 20's and 30's and were never popular with users.  To light, to soft, and prone to damage.  Stanley sales pitch of rustless did not impress the potential buyers. 

Fine . . . . . . .$125.00       SOLD!!






Stanley # A 4 Smooth PlaneStanley # A 4 Smooth Plane  The condition is nice with just minor scratches on the sole.  The upper portion of the cutter was rusty and has been cleaned leaving some pitting.  The working area is OK.   Sweetheart era. Nice decal Handle.   Nice.

Stanley Gage G3 C Corrugated Bottom Smooth PlaneStanley Gage G 3 C Corrugated Bottom Smooth Plane Stanley introduced this line of metal bodied planes after buying out the Gage Tool Co of Vineland NJ in about 1919.  They were meant to compete with the line of planes known as Auto Sets that Sargent was putting onto the market.  Given the G3 Designation, and the patent info cast into the bed, this would be considered a ype 3 dating from the 1930's.  They were never a great success with the user crowd of the day given you could buy a Bedrock for about the same money.   Overall nice condition.       

Good  . . . . . $95.00   SOLD!!
