Tools For Sale; Part Two

As I was getting all the details for the different planes I am about to offer up, the collector hormones began to take over my neural synapses. I put these planes back on the shelf, twice.  After a self-guided counseling session and a fine cup of coffee, I pressed forward.  So here we go, the conditions of sale are the same as before.

The first person to notify me that they want it, gets it.  No bidding wars allowed!

The indicated prices include shipping (unless indicated otherwise) within the 48 contiguous United States.  Shipping to Alaska, Hawaii, and Canada would be calculated on an individual basis.

Only after I receive your payment, will I ship your item.  I prefer payment via PayPal however, I will accept certified check, money order or personal check.  (If you pay with a personal check I will ship after the check clears the bank.)

Tell me which tool you desire by emailing me at; ray.schwanenberger@gmail.com.


This is a Record/Marples No. 4 Smoothing Plane made in England.  It has the original iron and chip breaker.  The iron has been sharpened however, will require some touch up before using.  This very good user tool sold for an average of $83 plus shipping on eBay.

Price including shipping: SOLD



This is a Stanley/Bailey No. 5 Jack Plane.  This Plane retains its patina, I have never cleaned or done anything to this piece.  When I was dating this plane, I was shocked to discover that it is a hybrid of a Type 4 and Type 5 1874-1888 (this is when the collector hormones kicked in).  I checked this against two different dating charts and came to the same conclusion.  I could not find any examples of this plane sold on eBay. 

Price including shipping: SOLD




This is a very fine specimen of a Stanley No. 7 Jointer Plane.  Using the Antique & Collectible Stanley Tools; A Guide to Identity and Value grading table, this plane falls between the New-In-Box and Mint condition ( some rust on iron and breaker).  The japanning is 100% in tact.  This dates to a Type 15 1931-1932 pre-war plane.  The original box displays the Sweetheart Logo, last years were 1931-1932. 
I was unable to find a comparable plane that sold on eBay.  The Lie-Nielsen No. 7 sells for $425 plus shipping.

I am installing a new Hock Tool iron and chip breaker and putting this sweet thing to work.  It is still available to anyone interested in owning this classic.


 
This is a Stanley No. 48 Tongue & Groove Plane.  These planes were manufactured from 1875-1944.  The japanning is 100%.  Based on this and the fish scale design this as a WWII era plane.  I will include information on this plane from tool expert Patrick Leach.  This too comes in the original box (w/ Sweetheart Logo) with the original paper work and three blades.  Using the Antique & Collectible Stanley Tools; A Guide to Identity and Value grading table, this plane falls between the New-In-Box and Mint condition (some minor rust on fence pin).  Again I could find no comparable planes sold on eBay.  Lie-Nielsen makes a similar plane that sells for $195 plus shipping.

Price including shipping: SOLD





 This is a Stanley No. 50 Plow & Beading Plane.  The japanning is 100% and this has a rosewood handle.  During WWII tools were japanned because nickle was scarce and the rosewood handles were used during the same era.  I will include information on this plane from tool expert Patrick Leach.  Based on Patrick's data, I have dated this tool at or about 1945.  Again I could find no comparable planes sold on eBay.  The closest to comparable was $298 plus shipping.

Price including shipping: SOLD





This is a Stanley No. 148 Matching Plane.  These planes were manufactured from 1905-1958.  This plane is a tongue and groove plane that centers a 1/4' groove on 7/8" material.  Average price on eBay was $83

 Price including shipping:  SOLD






Here is an unmatched set of 8 English Mortising Chisels.  Sizes are: 3/4", 5/8", 9/16", 7/16", 3/8"+, 3/8"-, 1/4", and 1/8".  They are for sale as a set.  They have been together so long I couldn't stand to break them up.  I used these chisels to cut the mortises in the gun cabinet pictured in my gallery.  I was unable to find anything like these on eBay.  Tools for Working Wood sells the Ray Isles chisels and a seven chisel set cost just over $518.  That is an average of $74/chisel.  

Price including shipping: SOLD






This is an 8" Chipaway Drawknife.
Drawknives are not just a tool used by chair makers.
eBay average is $54.

Price including shipping: SOLD

 



This is an 10" Dunlap Drawknife.
Drawknives are not just a tool used by chair makers.
eBay average is $57.

Price including shipping: SOLD

 


This is a chair makers tool called a Travisher.
It is used in the carving of seats. 
This particular one is sold by the Crown Plane Company for  $105.  
I have too many Travishers so this one must go.

 Price including shipping: SOLD

 



This is still unsold from the last posting.  A very seldom used (2 times) Leigh D4 Dovetail Jig with manual and a full set of 16 cutters.  The D4 is no longer marketed as the D4 it is now the D4R and the Leigh suggested retail price, for the jig only is $599.  The suggested retail price for the full 15 cutters set (yes one less, who knows why) is $249, for a total of $848 before taxes.  The same jig and cutter set through Rockler is a total of $750 before taxes.
** Reduced Price: $365 + shipping **
