Well I could not resist this one. Attachment 43770
Got a real bargain here. I think its cause i was shopping on ebay.ca as opposed to the dot com.
Picked this up for $20.50 and free delivery right to my door.
Can you believe the guy selling it stays about 5km from my home. Was kind enough to drop it off yesterday.
Gonna clean it up and buy a few lee valley upgrades for it.
Given a new one from LV costs a $149 i dont think i did too badly.
As you can see its in pretty good condition ( was gonna say nick but then some of you might think i nicked it) for its age.
I might have a go at turning some new handles for it some time.
This hand tool thing is really a vortex or two.
One thing i have come to realize if you shop ebay and have some discipline you can secure bargains you just have to be patient and stick to your price level and not be sad to see it pass you by if it goes over your limit.
I have no idea where the limit is for these router planes but mine was $20.
