I don’t think I ever posted about the other plane I got before I picked up the No. 71 router plane off eBay
- Stanley Bailey No. 3 – £14.50 + 5.90 P&P
I got it some time ago but have only just got round to cleaning and derusting it.
This purchase pretty much completed my plane “collection” … apart from a No. 6 … and a No. 7 … and maybe some more block planes, and maybe if I saw some nice Marples wood planes … well ok the collection has some way to go! 🙂
Yesterday on the way home from our trip to the seaside I picked up another purchase:
- Marples padsaw – £2.99 (no P&P as collected)
I realised a while ago that I have quite a few Marples tools, so my collectors urges have kicked in!
I picked this up from the seller and saved myself £2.60 P&P.
While I was there, he mentioned he had two pin hammers and a claw hammer, so I spent most of the money I saved! 🙂
- Great mills cross pein hammer – £2 (no P&P)
I was going to take the other cross pein hammer, but then I noticed the make and had to have this.
I think they were the first DIY shed I was ever aware of, so it brings back happy memories of wandering around the branch in my home town with my Dad.
- Stanley No. 130 block plane – 99p + £3.50 P&P
I’ve not received this yet. Received not long after I first posted this.
I wasn’t really expecting to win it, but put in a low bid when it got close to the end.
It looks pretty rusty, but it seems to have both the cross rods/bars in place that trap the blade in the two directions, whereas the one I got at a car boot sale only has one of the bars.
