I won a couple lots at the
last David Stanley auction.
A box of interesting planes
that will be fun to sharpen and make use of.
A craftsman built shoulder plane made from a bronze casting and sweated steel
sole, and a Norris Smoother with a steel toe.
These will be fun to clean up.
The lot as advertised at the auction. 4 compass planes and 3 specialty routers.
This one really intrigued me. A bronze casting, steel sole, and
Hearnshaw iron with plenty of life.
This is a beauty. Only lightly used and in excellent condition. Under the wedge
and on the bed is marked “Russell”. It is struck very cleanly. It’s so clean,
I wonder how recently it was struck.
The sole is pristine with a beautiful mouth. The streak behind the mouth
is not a crack, but an old scratch from use.
