    Default Vintage Stanley

    Perhaps spotted here before, but still, kinda cool.

    Especially I like that statement "We guarantee all our items!". Wonderful!

    G'Day Sumu,

    I know little about Planes.
    and this one gives me a headache.

    And that's not even thinking about it

    Pity about that nasty oblong hole in the back of the base.
    The blade is obviously projecting into the tightest mouth ever seen on a handplane. Why it's virtually non-existent!!!
    Produces shavings so thin that they are unable to be seen with the naked eye.

    Do you think a review by Derek would assist with the sale

    Dont reckon that it would have been used at all in that configuration.
    Not sure if that's on par with the super rare 441 offered earlier during the week.

    The ultimate in taking a fine shaving.
    The other thing is nearly every plane on ebay is "vintage" even with plastic knob and tote.

    I like the seller that adds "WOW" after everything, that sure gets my heart beating that little bit faster.
    The one I couldn't dispute was the Anant plane that was "Rare vintage working plane, Blade very sharp" I thought to myself "A working Anant with a sharp blade...very rare"
