Two Sargent planes, one is an Autoset on EBay for a "Buy It Now" price of $55 plus shipping.

Anyone here have an autoset? I've never even put hands on one.

Easiest explanation is to take a look.

My post #40 had a link to an EBay listing. The autoset is on the left.

My post #42 had a link to TimeTestedTools thread where he was looking for a blade for his autoset.

There have been many innovations in hand plane design over the centuries. This was a Sargent innovation to allow setting the blade depth and in theory it would adjust as the blade wore.

I do not own one, so I have no first hand experience on how well it worked. Looks interesting and high tech for its time. Just difficult to find the blades these days.

It's a good price.

I paid $150 for a type 1 605-1/2C in fair condition... Would have gone more.

Apples to oranges but I only buys tools at a price around 1/2 retail. You can always get your money back out of it that way. That's less than 1/2 retail.

Oh, no you misunderstood. That is no type 1 you are looking at buying! I was saying the 5-1/2 I bought was.

Google "Bedrock type study" there are a couple.
