Went to this sale today and they had all these planes. Some I've never seen before and some I thought were pricy. I don't know to much about them, but thought I'd share.
Tell me what you think.

If you can't see the prices, I can zoom in on them and re-post.

That's an amazing bunch of planes. So how many did you come home with? ;)

If I'm reading the prices correctly in the last pic, it does seem kind of pricy. $75 for a SB #4 is definitely high and $50 for a #80 seems high as well. I suppose because they were in the original boxes they thought they could get more for them.

Were the ones on the shelves without boxes any cheaper?

I think I am jealous. :laughing:

I would love to have been able to look around that sale.

Sounds like the fellow is a collector/seller.

I have a local flea market where there are a few tool sellers. Some of the planes are also pricey. They can appear to be in good shape, but often cleaned and oil, but not restored.

It would be very nice to have such a large selection to look through.

Unfortunately I didn't bring any of those home with me, but I did manage to get 29 carving tools.

I wasn't familiar with the great neck carving tools, so I looked them up and found them on Amazon.
They say buck brothers.

Adam I think the ones in the box were the pricey ones. As far as the ones on the shelf, those were priced fair.
This wasn't a flea market. It was a garage sale.
Yes it was fun to look around.

Heck, just the concept of ticket prices on items makes me think flea market. :icon_smile:
Very true Dave. I suspect he may have a small shop somewhere. I actually thought the seller looked familiar.
