    Slow6....
    These are the some of the rarest, and most sort after planes in the tool collecting world, because they are the first efforts of Leonard Bailey about 1855, well before his connection with Stanley R & L co. There are many collectors out there wanting to get them.
    ....you have the 2 and seven back to front...$7200.00 will be closer. My guess is it will go above 5000 and might get close to 10,000. That one is in the best condition I've ever seen. There might be 2 or more blokes at the last second that put "unbeatable" bids on it... Given the downturn in the US economy it might loose a few bidders, however if it goes over 10...I won't be all that surprised!
    Regards,
    Peter.
    BTW, I like the treatment you gave that Stanley plane with the Walnut handle!

    Thanks for the kind coment Peter. I remember one selling not too long ago but forgot what it went for. Also forgot to save the pictures from the listing for future reference.
    I really like the plane.. I have seen a few pre-stanley Bailey concoctions and they all share a certain whimsy that agrees with me.
    I think if I ever have that huge disposable income that we would all love I may be one of those collectors.

    And at the other end of the spectrum, surely this has to be worth more than $9?

    Hi Peter

    Interesting that Jim Bode made an offer of $3K to end the auction early. That did not work..

    Do you think that the lever cap screw is original? It looks like a #112 adjustment screw was used.

    Regards from Perth

    Derek,
    I hadn't gone back to look at the plane since my first look the day it was listed. The double row knurling on the knob look alright to me, but looking back just now I see more pictures and a top view of the knob...you are right! So I just went to the red and blue books for a refresher look. There are two row knobs with that thumb-wheel adjuster behind the wooden knob, but on the lever cap knob the top ring is a bit smaller than the lower one, and the one on that plane looks like one from my #112 etc with a steel threaded pin through it...well spotted! It might be original to the plane, BUT it does look different than the ones in the reference book.........???
    Regards,
    Peter

    OK here's another one to ponder.

    Certainly a few interesting items, but.....

    That's a pretty cool box of gear.. certainly better than any carpenters box I have ever found.
    looks like the old chap had good taste and the dosh to back it up.

    I'm saving this one to show my wife.

    Just in case she ever thinks MY tool purchasing has gotten out of hand...

    I think the starting bid has one too many zeros

    without doing an item by item comparison, I'd guess, sold individually, around $1500 to $2000

    It had crossed my mind that maybe Scribbly had put together a machine to trim down those commercial strips of lawn you can buy.

    Turf thicknesser.. genius!

    Maybe it's the new (ultra top secret) Tele-Point International Skew Thicknesser
