Stanely Hand Planer

Hey All,

I have a few questions about a plane I found on an auction site (http://mcleanauctions.hibid.com/lot/...tab=0&cpage=34):

1. I know this is a Stanley but any idea what kind of Stanely?
2. Can this be restored? The bottom looks like its in pretty rough shape.
3. How much could I possibly get for this planer if I restore it?

If anyone can helping me out with any of the above questions, I would really appreciate it :)

Well it's a newer model from what I can see from the picture. Black painted tote, if I'm correct is not really good or sought after. No stamped marking on the iron also points to new. I would pass on this one but maybe others here have a different take.

If you plan to use it, it should be fine, it should clean up pretty good. It looks like a #4 to me.

As others have said, it's a lower end Stanley, similar to a Handyman. It would be a good plane to learn restoration procedures on even though the final result won't have much value. There is a lot to learn about restoring planes and it's better to learn on something that won't matter if you mess it up.

Max. bid, $7

The blue and red ones don't even have a frog ajusting screw.
Bottoms were ground with a belt sander. (But even the ones done with grind stones needed tuning. Is the type of plane that I'd keep around to plane a door edge sfter an earthquake or something. If someone stole it I wouldn't lose any sleep over it after I'd shot them of course.
It's a low end plane. Save your money, better stuff will show up.

Ya the bidding went higher than I would have spent. My max was $5 and I think it went for $11. I got a sweet ax for $3 though!
