Stanley 4 1/2 Large Smooth PlaneStanley 4 1/2 Large Smooth Plane  The body is sound with no cracks, chips, pitting or other issues, and there is lots of original japanning. This later 4 1/2 does have a couple of apologies though. The Rosewood handle has been re-glued. Also whoever sharpened the cutter last must have been blind or fell asleep at the wheel. It has a deep hollow ground a good 1/4" up from the bottom edge. I put a decent clean edge on the leading edge, but am not sure how it is going to go the next couple times it needs to be sharpened. I can add a better cutter for $30.00. An otherwise pretty nice example.

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!!

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.

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..

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.
