Found this at an estate sale. It was being run by a company consisting of all women. They had it priced at $8.50. I jumped on it!!! The rod seen in front closes the opening if you don't like an open throat. Not shown is the edge guide. Also picked up a Bailey #5. For $4.50. No masks involved.
First of all, I would like to thank a fellow member on Routerforum.com for giving me the opportunity to acquire this beauty and give it a new home! He purchased this plane, new, a couple of decades ago and never used it. There are probably many of you who don't know, that, I like using hand planes. I find and refurbish them, and I have rescued dozens from garage sales and flea markets. I have several boxes of cleaned up and still in the rough planes, but the one that has consistently eluded me was a #7 (and a #8 if one ever will present itself). Most of the ones, that I found, were rusted, beat-up junk that were overpriced. When the member offered a NIB #7C, I knew that I couldn't pass it up. Well, it arrived on my doorstep today, well pack, and calling to me to let it out of the box. Well, I thought that I would share this beauty with the forum. So, without further ado, meet my brand new Stanley Bailey #7C (corrugated sole) plane. So, where does this hunk of iron fit in? Well some pictures of its new home. You'll notice the empty spots that were made just for a #7 and maybe one day a #8. From right to left #3, #4, #5-1/4, #5C, #6, and now a #7C, two molding planes, a ca. 1840 wood plane, and finally my ca. 1880 Keen Kutter wood plane. These are all of my "user" planes. I have several others that I use, but these are my go to ones. Hope you guys enjoyed this. Bill
Yard sale! Went out scouting around this morning. Found a place that had a few old wrenches @ $0.25 each. Picked out six. Guy said something about more on the back porch.... Three handsaws were laying there. One wasn't even worth picking up. Another was a Warranted Superior, with the medallion just stuck into the handle. And the third one? A Diamond in the rough! A Disston No. 7 7ppi, with a Lamb's Tongue on the handle. And, just for something extra It has the infamous NIB! Doesn't look like this saw was ever sharpened. Blade is full sized in every direction. The best part of the saw? That price tag! It says $1. I picked the WS saw up as well, sine the Disston needed half a bolt. One other stop, and a electric screwdriver, with charger for about a buck... Not too bad a day, considering that the Sun also came out today...
