    Flea Markets finds

    Went to several flea markets yesterday. Picked up a couple items.

    Stanley 5 1/4, Type 13, $32. No blade, broken tote. Little close to my self imposed spending limit.



    Stanley 130 block plane. $25 and over my limit, but it is the only one I have ever seen in the wild. Be no more at this price.



    Looked at several Stanley block planes, just don't have the use for them. Seen several wooden molders and block planes. Some Sargents, Unions and a Perloizzi (sp)?

    That's when you buy them and re-sell here, everybody still gets a good deal. It was a huge change in attitude for me when I realized that if I saw a tool I didn't need, but was nice and also inexpensive, I could buy it and pass it on to someone else, and also cover the expenses for the hunt. Great fun.

    Steve, that looks like a very nice 5 1/4. I use mine all the time, and it is a great plane to have.

    Interesting that the 5 has the chipbreaker, but not the blade. Blades are easy to find - not so the chipbreaker. (Same blade as a #3, BTW)

    Never really gave that a thought Ken. I really not looking to make $. Guess I could just flip and get them back into circulation.
