    Bailey #4 for sale.

    I am some what new here and since the block I offered went so well I thought I would offer a #4 to get aquainted better. I am a retired tool and die maker and the owner of the place I retired from lets me come back and use his surface grinder so I redo hand planes as a hobbie. I buy one, redo it and sell it so I have some money to buy another one and so on.


    Having said that I have a Bailey #4 for sale. It has been precision ground and it is flat within.0015. Actually that is my tolerance range so it is actually closer. The sides are ground square with the bottom. That makes it somewhat ideal for a shooting board. The blade is also precision ground so there is no or if one wants to lap the top yery little, lapping to sharpen. The japanning is at least 95% or better. The knob and tote are rosewood. And the tote has been repaired, which is not uncommon.

    I also like to show at least one picture of it disassembled so a person knows everything is in order. It also comes with amoney back quarentee.

    Just curious - What are you using for the black? Are you painting it, or going full-on with japanning?

    Nice plane, btw.

    The japanning is original. All I used is soap and water.
