I've been having a blast learning about, using, and in general "acquiring" as many planes as I can sneak past the CFO! Less than 3 years ago I had a $10 Homier #4 and a block plane junk set, then my aunt sent me my grandfather's old Stanley 220, which I cleaned and sharpened. Then I ran across a couple of nice Baileys at garage sales, and proceeded to jump off the deep end. By last year I had acquired a sizeable group of various planes, but to pay for my new Shop Fox W1677 cabinet saw, I needed to sell a few of them off. Well, I missed them, so I started squirreling away gift money and spare change to rebuild the fleet over the long winter here.
Here's a pic of the "old" fleet prior to being largely decimated shortly after buying the new saw:
Here's a pic of the current fleet (this is what reminds me of my younger girls playing with their "Barbies"! ):
In all, there's a Bedrock 605, Bailey 5-1/4, 2 Stanley block planes, Stanley #80 scraper, Millers Falls 8,9,11, (two) #14, and an 18 in transit. There's also an older Craftsman #4 and 9-1/2, a Fulton #3, Record 09-1/2, 03 (circa 1931-1939), (two) #04, 04-1/2, 05, 05-1/2 w/Lee Valley blade, 06, and 07...am currently bidding on a 60-1/2. A few odd wood planes from the old pic are missing from the current pic but still exist in my shop.
Here are my larger Record planes....04-1/2, 05-1/2, 06, and 07:
The bench planes (3, 4, 4-1/2):
The Jack planes (5-1/2, 5, 5-1/4):
Here's a "before & after" of a Bedrock 605 type 6 (1914-1918):
A good look at my Bailey 5-1/4 type 13...all original. (circa 1928):
Feel free to post your collection...I'd love to see them!
