Stanley # 9 1/2 Type 1 Tailed Block PlaneStanley # 9 3/4 Type 1 Tailed Block Plane (PARTS)  The cap is nice.  The tail is nice, the cutter is a later replacement that is nice.  The front moveable throat looks nice, but not sure if the threads are going to be right w/ that brass screw in there.  The main body has suffered a near fatal fall at some point and now has a caved in side.  Check the pics of the back side.  The tail, cutter and cap are worth the money as parts, or it can be used as is.

Fair - / Parts . . . . .  $ 150.00      SOLD!!






Stanley # 9 3/4 Type 1 Tailed Block PlaneStanley #9 3/4 Type 1 Tailed Block Plane This type 1 9 3/4 looks pretty nice. The 9 1/2 was first offered in 1872 and changes in the design brought forth the type 2 in 1874.   I believe the front plate is an old replacement.  It does not have the full range of movement one would expect.  Tiny flea bites in the throat, the rest is good.  Hard to find.

Good . . . . . $295.00       SOLD!!

Stanley # 18 1/4 Block PlaneStanley # 18 1/4 Block Plane  Stanley offered this block plane for just 6 years between 1952 and 1958.  It is a hard block plane to find.  It is basically a cross between a #18 with its knuckle joint cap and a 9 1/4 w/o an adjustable front piece.  The number 18 1/4 is stamped on the side.  The condition is very nice.  All proper and ready for the collection or use.

Stanley 65 1/2 Block PlaneStanley # 140  Rabbit Block Plane  This is a very nice example if this skew angle rabbit plane   The cutter still has plenty of life left and is near full length.  The japanning is original and at least 95%.   The nickel on the cap is near perfect.   The side plate is nice, and the screws are original.  These are considered one of the best designed Stanley planes and are a favorite with users with the skew cutter for end grain work and the rabbit feature is handle for corners.  Recommended!!      

Fine . . . . .$ 125.00              SOLD!





Stanley # 9 3/4 Type 1 Block PlaneStanley # 9 3/4 Type 1 Block Plane   This is pretty nice overall.  The tail is nice, the cutter is long proper and nice.  The front moveable throat looks nice.  The main body is rust and pit free.  The one apology is the very small chip at the throat.

Good . . . . .  $ 375.00     SOLD!!








Stanley # 65 Low Angle Block PlaneStanley # 65 Low Angle Block Plane   This is a later model after Stanley dropped the knuckle joint cap and reverted back to the more typical style cap.  A nice plane that will be a great user after being tuned up and sharpened / honed.  Nice!! 

Good +  . . . . . $65.00      SOLD!!







Stanley # 65 Low Angle Block PlaneStanley # 65 Low Angle Block Plane  A nice example.  Little evidence it was ever used. 

Fine +  . . . . . $65.00     SOLD!!








Stanley # 18 Excelsior Body Block PlaneStanley # 18 Excelsior Body Block Plane  This is a Type 4 that dates from 1898.  It is an easy type to identify given the handy feature cut into the excelsior body.  They only offered this variant for one year.  The cutter is long, nice, and proper.  Lots of original japanning.  It has been lightly cleaned.  Suitable for the shelf or will be a great user after being tuned and sharpened / honed.  Nice!! 

Good +  . . . . . $45.00     SOLD!!

Stanley Type 1 # 9 1/2 Block PlaneType 1 Stanley  # 9 3/4 Block Plane  Stanley introduced the 9 1/2 block plane in 1872 and made the Type 1 for just 2 years before making major changes to the design.  Over the years they made a number of modifications to the design, and there is a well done and very detailed type study that has been done on these planes.

The distinguishing features are the solid cap, style of the adjustable front and body shape.  The rear handle / tail bracket is also a unique design used only on these early models.  While the 9 1/  is one of the most common of all block planes, the first model or type 1 is one of the rarest planes Stanley made.  Very few appear on the market. 

Good + . . . . .$495.00        SOLD!!






Stanley # 9 3/4 Tailed Block PlaneStanley # 9 3/4 Tailed Block Plane   This Stanley # 9 3/4 block plane is in fine condition.  No rust or pitting.  The cutter is nice. Throat good. No damage to the body.  The collector identified it as a type 9.  A hard to find block plane that is nice enough for the collection or will make a great user.   Nice!!

Good + . . . . . $350.00     SOLD!!








#15 1/2 Tailed Block Plane#15 1/2 Tailed Block Plane  The collector identified this as a Stanley #15 1/2 but I am not sure if that is right given the way the throat adjuster is set up in reverse of Stanley's idea.  I would bet it was made by a competitor who used this set-up as a way around the Stanley patent.  That would make it far rarer than a typical Stanley, which is a pretty hard to find plane in its own right.  There are a couple small chips in the throat area.  Otherwise OK.

Good  . . . . .  $ 245.00           SOLD!!







Stanley # 9 3/4 Excelsior Style Tailed Block PlaneStanley # 9 3/4 Excelsior Style Tailed Block Plane  The collector identified this as a type 4.  I have been told it is more likely a type 9 with some swapped parts.  I did not carefully check that, but it sounds right.  A prior owner did carve his initials into the side rail as seen in the pics.  A nice early example of Stanley's favorite block plane with the hard to find tail that i have been told is for a later model.

Good . . . . .  $225.00     SOLD!!






Stanley Excelsior Model # 15 3/4 Tailed Block PlaneStanley Excelsior Model # 15 1/2 Tailed Block Plane  This is the same plane as above with a auxiliary tail attached that just came in on a broken body.  I want 200 for the original handle.  It is very nice.  The nut holding it on is on the verge of being stripped.   It gets tight, and then skips a thread and loosens up.   You are buying the handle only for $200 and the plane from above for $95.00.  Buy one, the other, or both.  Your Choice.

Good +  . . . . . .$ 275.00              SOLD!!






Stanley 65 1/2 Block PlaneStanley # 61 Block Plane  The type 1 # 61 Low Angle Stanley block plane is just under 6 " long and does not have a moveable front.  The knob looks oversize in this pic, but i believe it is proper.  They date from 1902 or earlier.   The throat is nice.  It is typically in demand more as a collector piece than a user given the non adjustable throat and is a hard to find little block plane.

Good +. . . . .$ 95.00            SOLD!!







Stanley # 100 1/2 Round Bottom Tailed Block PlaneStanley # 100 1/2 Round Bottom Tailed Block Plane  The body is nice, but the cutter and cap are customized replacements.  Seems to work OK.

Good +  . . . . .$45.00         SOLD!







Miniature Nickel Plated Block Plane (201)Miniature Nickel Plated Block Plane (201)    It looks like a Stanley 201, but I do not think it is.  The nickel is original, and the plane is old, but the cutter is unmarked and there is just one cast blade support behind / under the cutter.  Probably offered by Union or Ohio, or some other more obscure maker to compete with the nickeled Stanley 201 version.  Different!!  Look at all of the pics to get a sense of just what we have here.

Good +  . . . . . .  $40.00        SOLD!!

Stanley #16 Block PlaneStanley #16 Block Plane  The #16 Stanley block plane is 6" long and identical to the 9 1/2 with the exception of the nickel finish on the cap .  It is otherwise identical to the 9 1/2.  The overall condition could not be nicer.  The throat is nice.  The nickel is good, the japanning over 90% and original.  A nice plane in like new condition!!  Ready for the shelf or use.

Stanley # A 18 Aluminum Knuckle Joint Cap Block PlaneStanley # A 18 Knuckle Joint Cap Aluminum Block Plane  Nice condition.  One of Stanley's "better" ideas that was not.  Stanley produced a line of Stanley planes in Aluminum back in the 20's to mid 30's.   Most users felt they were too soft, and too light.   It was an idea that never really caught on in the market place.  Ready for the collection.

Good + . . . . . $125.00      SOLD!!
