    Need help with plane identification.

    First chisels and now planes.

    Picked up some planes at a swap meet today. I know nothing about planes. How did I do? What did I get? Any help from the masters?

    Scraper says Stanley 80 on it.

    Little plane says LS0 or LSO and then a number 1.

    Largest plane says Defiance by Stanley and made in USA on front. Everthing works great on it.

    One smaller plane says Lakeside on the blade and Made in USA on back. 4C under the blade holder and has a screw down front handle.

    The other smaller plane says Sargent 217 New Haven Ct USA on blade, 307/306 under blade holder, Made in USA in front, handle with top screw, and has a nicer srew in back.

    Any value guestimates on these?

    Hi Mike,

    The plane with the most monetary value is most likely the scraper, and it isn't much. The most utility pretty much depends on present vs. future usage. For me, it would be a toss-up between the block planes and the scraper. I use both quite a bit.

    Take care, Mike
