Tools for sale

The rehab of the shoulder is going well and I hope to be back in the shop, working, by this time next month.  In the mean time I have been catching up on my reading and I must tell you that the Anarchist's Tool Chest has absolutely grabbed me.  I have always stated that I would only buy vintage tools to use and not to collect. I now realize my past actions have not been an accurate reflection of my words.

Today I am selling three vintage tools and one not so vintage.  These are tools that I have not used or are doubles of something I am already using.  So here are the conditions of the sale:

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

The indicated prices include shipping 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.


So here's what is up for sale:

This is a Stanley/Bailey 5 1/2 Jack Plane with the original iron and chip breaker.  This is the bigger brother of the #5 bench plane, which is considered by many to be the most useful bench plane in a woodworkers arsenal.  There are three patent dates behind the frog; MAR-25-02, AUG-19-02, & APR-19-10.  The average price for this type of plane, in this Good ++ condition sold on eBay for $124.  I am including a Hock Tools BP225 iron, sharpened and ready for use, along with the Hock Tools BK225 chip breaker, which combined, retail for $76.
    

Price including shipping: Sold



This is a Stanley 10 1/2 Rabbet Plane w/ original iron and chip breaker.  According to Antique & Collectible Stanley Tools; A Guide to Identity and Value, this planes condition meets the qualifications of an Excellent rating.  The original iron has been sharpened by the previous owner and by appearances saw very little if any use.  The average price for this type of plane, in Excellent condition, sold on eBay for $167.

Price including shipping: Sold



This is a Stanley 71 1/2 Router Plane w/ three irons, fence, paperwork and original box.  According to Antique & Collectible Stanley Tools; A Guide to Identity and Value, this planes condition falls between the qualifications for New In Box and Mint.  This is due to a trace of oxidation on the iron adjustment screw.  Also according to the guide, the #71 1/2 was manufactured from 1896 to 1950 and that the earlier models (no exact year given) were japanned.  The average price for this type of plane, in this condition, sold on eBay for $131.

Price including shipping: Sold



This is 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.

Price including shipping: $595
