I almost posted this question in Mike's thread about him buying his first plane but it would have hijacked the thread.
There is almost constant talk about old planes here. Much of it concerns finding them. To me, this is puzzling. Wifey and I spend some time prowling antique shops and flea markets. It is common to find, in any shop, dozens, or scores of old planes. When I look at them, about 90% are Stanley's. I already have too many collections, hobbies, avocations, etc. But, the plane thing is starting to catch my attention. I am wondering if buying at these shops and reselling on eBay might be a profitable venture since folks in other parts of the country seem to have trouble finding them. What say the jury?
