    Do you think the come-on's "it was my granddad's.." or "it was my dad's..", etc., are really true? Or do you think it is a ploy to convince you, that they are not a "professional" seller? If it was my "granddad's", "dad's", etc; I would be ashamed to let anyone know that I was selling my heritage. Maybe just me, but I always wonder when I see it.

    When guys came into my gunshop to sell guns they always said, "This was grandpa's gun."
    Of course, I always gave them more money because of that.
    But, regardless, that's an interesting plane. It is a plane, isn't it?

    Or perhaps they have no interest in woodworking and figure Gramps would prefer to see the tool used instead of displayed.

    Gentlemen,

    I have a feeling that thing's worth seventy five bucks, easy. Maybe way more.

    No matter whose it was...

    Thanks,

    Bill

    I've got two of those, they are rather common on ebay and not so expensive, I think I got mine for about 40$

    The main problem is that most of those plough planes are sold with only one blade and to make good use of them it is good to have the full set of blade widths. You can get blades on ebay but then it adds up to total price.

    The more sought after ones are those that have the fence supports threaded, specially if the thread or the nuts are not broken which is often the case.

    My five cents...
    Best regards,
    Toni
