    smoother for sale

    As always, all have been precision ground and are no more than .0015 of an inch out of being perfectly flat. The sides have been ground with the same care and precision and are also ground square to the bottom. The would make a good choice of a plane for shooting board work.

    I touched up the plane irons on all of the planes. It helps with sharpening, It doesn't require any lapping but a lot of people will still do it. The top on. some of the earlier irons needed a little help after about 100 years or so. I also flatten the backs at the cutting edge . It helps the blade to make full contact with the frog and I feel it helps reduce chatter.

    Prices listed do not include shipping.

    I have a Bailey #4C for sale. The japanning is all but perfact. I do not know what type of wood the knob and tote are made of and out side of a little wear, and I mean little, they are in new shape. The blade is also about full lenght. If there is a down side to the plane, the lever cap has a coupe of hollow spots.

    It will make a wonderful smoother for not a lot of money. I would like $75 for it

    Price wise you can buy them cheaper. But when it comes to preformance I don't think you can buy a plane that will match it for anywhere close to this price.

    Thanks for looking
