Stanley # 40 1/2 Scrub PlaneStanley # 40 1/2 Scrub Plane   The Stanley #40 1/2 is the larger version of the #40 scrub plane.  This example is nice noting that the handle is Beech, and knob looks to be Rosewood. The japanning is 90% or so.  From the cutter logo it dates from near the turn of the century.  This plane is waiting to go back to work or put up on the shelf it is so nice.   Nice!!

Good+ . . . . . $110.00       SOLD!!







Stanley 444 Dovetail PlaneStanley #444 Dovetail Plane  The Stanley #444 dovetail plane is one of the oddest planes made by Stanley. They can cut both halves of dovetails.  You can watch this being done on You Tube.  It was offered for a little over 25 years beginning in 1912. This example is in its original box that is a bit rough.  It has all 4 original cutters, and both spur blocks.   I do not see any damage, welds, or pitting, but there has been some nickel loss.

Good + . . . . .$695.00    SOLD!!

Stanley # 113 Compass PlaneStanley # 113 Compass Plane  This compass plane has been lightly cleaned, and has a rich dark patina. There is no rust or pitting to speak of.  There is at least 70% of the of the japanning if not more.   A nice plane.

Stanley # 340 Furring PlaneStanley # 340 Furring Plane   This type plane were meant to be used much like the 40 & 40 1/2 for quickly removing a lot of stock in preparation for final milling.  The sole is very unusual where just the middle portion is meant to come into contact with the work.  The cutter looks proper, but is from a 62 or 64 with its slotted back meant for an adjuster which the 340 does not have.  Nice enough!!

Good . . . . .  $595.00       SOLD!!

Stanley #56 Core Box PlaneStanley # 56 Core Box Plane  The #56 Core Box plane is one of the hardest to find of the Stanly special use planes. The collector bought this from Iron Horse Tool Auctions and paid the hefty sum of $1260.00 back in the 80's.  A large amount to pay for any Stanley plane.

The condition is very nice with no rust, pitting, or damage to speak of.  The japanning does have some small pockmarks in it and a small area of some missing.  All in all a rare plane in nice condition that will make for a welcome addition to your collection.

Stanley # 69 Beader / ScraperStanley # 69 Beader / Scraper  A nice example of a hard to find collectible Stanley tool.  This is a hard to find versatile beader /scraper.  It is complete with an original set of cutters. The condition is very nice and this beader has seen little use. Most users prefer the #66 or #72, but these are handy and versatile in their own right.

Good +  . . . . . $325.00        SOLD!!

Stanley #147 T & G PlaneStanley #147 Double Tongue and Groove  This example must date from during the Second World War and right near the end of its production given the unusual finish scheme of partial japanning and partial nickeled finish.   The tops of the handles were nickeled, but most of this has flaked off.  The skate and up to the side of the base is also nickeled and this has about 85% remaining.  There is no casting damage or rust or pitting.  One cutter is original and the groove cutter is from a 45.  Different and Nice!

Good + . . . . . . . . $ 125.00       SOLD



Stanley # 146 Stanley # 146  SOLD!!   # 147 SOLD!! & #148 SOLD!! Tongue & Groove Planes   These three planes came from the same fitted box.  The plating on each is near perfect.  One has the original cutters, one has one original and one good replacement, and the 148 has two "blanks" which look to be cutters from a 45 and need to be sized to look proper.  A very nice grouping.  

Fine  . . . . . .$ 395.00 / Set   SOLD!!

Stanley # 48 T & G Tongue & Groove PlaneStanley # 48 T & G Tongue & Groove Plane  This an early example that would be referred to as a Type 1  It cuts a 5/16ths groove and can be used on boards from 3/4" to 1 1/4.  These early #48's were japanned, and this one is missing a lot of the original finish, but is not rusted or pitted.   To use you cut the tongue, and then swing the fence to cut the groove.  The cutters are nice.  It will make a good user. 

Good +  . . . . . $ 75.00  SOLD!



Stanley # 49 Tongue & Groove Match PlaneStanley # 49 Tongue & Groove Match Plane   Stanley offered this design plane in two sizes, the #48, & 49.  This is the smaller size designed to be used on 1/2 - 3/4" stock, it cut a 3/16ths Tongue and groove centered on 1/2".  The fence swings to allow it to cut one profile and then swung 180 degrees to cut the second.  This example is very nice with the nickel being 95% or better.  The cutters are proper.    Nice!!

Fine . . . . . $125.00     SOLD!!





Early Stanley # 48 Tongue & Groove Match PlaneEarly Stanley # 48 Tongue & Groove Match Plane  This early example of a Stanley 48 has Miller's 7/6/75 patent date stamped into the bottom of the plane. (see pics)  It is not marked with the name or number anywhere.  Walters makes no mention of this and says Type 1's are marked w/ a later 1876 date.  One of those unexplained anomalies!!   Very Nice!! 

Good +  . . . . . $125.00       SOLD!!






Stanley #48 Tongue & Groove Match PlaneStanley #48 Tongue & Groove Match Plane     Very Nice!!

Stanley # 113 Compass PlaneStanley # 113 Compass Plane  The 113 is one of the best known, and easily recognizable of all Stanley special use planes.  The sole of this compass plane can be adjusted to a convex or concave curve with a simple turn of the front knob.  This example is from near the turn of the century and has a lateral adjuster that earlier versions did not.  It has a nice even patina, and shows some signs of use, but not abuse, and is ready to be put back into use.  A nice example.

Good + . . . . .$ 125.00       SOLD!




Stanley / Victor # 20 Compass Plane Stanley / Victor # 20 Compass Plane  This Stanley #20 was first offered in 1897 and came nickel plated.  After 1920 they were japanned.  This would be considered a type one.   The Stanley 20 1/2 was offered at the time the 20 was nickeled so you could buy a japanned version.  It was dropped after 1917 and WWI. and the 20 was then offered in a black japanned finish    The condition of this example is good w/ minor losses to the finish.  A favorite with users and ready to go back to work.

Good + . . . .$ 150.00         SOLD!!



Stanley # 20 Compass PlaneStanley # 20 Compass Plane  The Stanley #20 Compass plane is the favorite among users because of the heftiness and design of the plane. The design was derived from Leonard Bailey's victor compass plane which Stanley bought the rights to.  This being a nickeled model would qualify it as a type 1 and dates it from before 1919.  They were japanned afterward.  There has been some nickel loss, but it is sound and ready to go back to work.

Good +. . . . .$ 195.00       SOLD!



Stanley #113 Compass PlaneStanley Second Model  # 113 Compass Plane  This 113 has the nickel wheel w/ 4 holes.  It is just a little dirty and has seen little use.   It is fully functional and pretty nice overall.  Everything is tight and proper and overall it is much nicer than the one above condition wise.  These early versions are much harder to find than the later ones.     

Good . . . . .$ 125.00        SOLD!

Good + . . . . . . . .$ 225.00       SOLD






Early Stanley / Bailey # 13 Compass PlaneEarly Stanley / Bailey # 13 Compass Plane  I do not seem to be able to find a type study for the #13 plane and so do not know exactly where this fits into the scheme of things.  It is not a type 1 as the folding strips on those have a different design.  It does have a solid nut w/o the Bailey name on it, and it has a solid cap.  The cutter and chip breaker have Bailey patent info on them.  I assume those features would make it an early type 2 or so.  It is dirty, and where the sole attaches at the front has some issues as can be seen in the pics.  Probably a pretty rare version of this plane that will clean to look more presentable for the collection.

Good  . . . . .$ 65.00       SOLD!




Stanley # 72 Chamfer PlaneStanley # 72 Chamfer Plane  This is a type 1 Stanley / Bailey #72 Chamfer Plane which would date it from 1885 - 1886 according to the type study I looked at.  Type 2 models would have patent info cast into the side.  The low front knob is beaded, and nice.  There is no rust or pitting nor much japanning left.   The rear handle which is different shape or form from a normal smooth plane is nice.   A nice looking plane in nice condition!!

Good   . . . . . .$ 225.00         SOLD!

Stanley # 11 1/2 Belt Makers PlaneStanley # 11 1/2 Floor Plane  This unusual plane was made for less than 15 years back at the beginning of the 1900's.  It looks great, and sports a new coat of paint or enhancement of the original paint.  The 11 1/2 Floor Plane is very similar in design to the #11 with the main difference being the longer front piece.  They were originally intended for the surfacing of hardwood floors.  They are used today in furniture making.   Hard to find!!  

Good +  . . . . .$ 95.00        SOLD!




Stanley # 40 Scrub PlaneStanley # 40 Scrub Plane   This Stanley #40 scrub plane is one of the last versions put out, and is in exceptional condition.  This example is all original and very nice with 95% of the original japanning and no rust or pitting.  The cutter is full length, nice, and marked with the notched rectangle logo.  This plane is waiting to go back to work or put up on the shelf it is so nice.   Nice!!

Stanley # 40 1/2 Scrub PlaneStanley # 40 1/2 Scrub Plane   The Stanley #40 1/2 is the larger version of the more common #40 scrub plane.  This example is all original and in very nice condition.  There are still remains of the decal on the handle,  The cutter is marked with the sweetheart logo, and is near full length.  This plane is waiting to go back to work or put up on the shelf it is so nice.   Nice!!

Excellent. . . . . $ 125.00       SOLD!



Stanley #66 Hand Beader / ShaveStanley #66 Hand Beader / Shave  A super condition japanned example.  Has both guides, with different thumbscrews.  They originally came w/ two guides, and one thumbscrew which you moved back and forth.  Thus explaining why they are always missing.   Shown w/ 1 cutter, but I have an original set of 7 to go with this. 

Fine. . . . . $125.00 w/ 7 original cutters      SOLD!!
