Antique & Collectible Stanley Rule & Level Co. Special Use Planes
12 1/2 Rosewood Base Scraper Plane A nice
example of this 12 1/2 Rosewood bottom Stanley scraper plane with a nice proper marked cutter. The cutter is near full length, and stained but
not pitted or rusty. It is marked Stanley in large block letters.
The cutter hold thumbscrew is marked Stanley also. Nice!!
Stanley # 20 Compass Plane As nice as one could ask for. This
plane has seen little to no use and is in crispy nice condition. The
one apology is the previous owner carved his initial in the side to keep his
fellow workers from making off with it.
# 56 Core Box Plane
This is not a true #56. Besides being chrome or nickel plated, it is a
smaller different size and is not marked 56. I do not know the whole story,
but the collector had several of them that I have sold over the years.
It looks unused.
Stanley # 69 Beading Plane / Scraper
w/ 7 Original Cutters A nice
example in the bottom half of what I believe is the original box.
Cutters are nice. No condition issues. A useful tool and favorite with
users and collectors.
Sweetheart Era # 78
Duplex Rabbet Plane in BoxNear Mint
Sweetheart Era in original box. No rust, pitting, or damage. 99% or better original
japanning. You just do not find them this nice anymore and still in the
sweetheart era box. Like New!!
# 90A Bullnose Rabbit Plane w/ Original Box
Only of handful of these planes are known,
and just a couple have ever appeared in the box. This Stanley 90A rabbit
Plane has been sitting
on a shelf in 2 collections for close to 30 years and this is the first time it
has come to market in all that time. The original collector bought it from
Roger Smith back in the late 70's. Each of the last 2 collectors thought
enough of it to die with it in their possession, if not their hands, and now is
your chance, as the current consignor is not as attached as they were.
The plane itself is mint and shows no signs of ever having been
used. The nickel is 100% and bright. The cutter is full length with
the original grind. There is no signs of wear on the tail piece handle.
Simply put it was never used.
The box does show some age along the edges and corners. They
have been reinforced from the inside, and it looks pretty good now, and is
stable. The Sweet Heart label on the end is near 100% and nice. The edges
of the inner box are split along the bottom and will need attention if it is
This is one of the rarest and hardest to find of all Stanley planes.
Very few have been offered over the years and none in cleaner unused condition that
I have ever seen. I know of only two others that have been sold in their original
boxes and both bought more than I am listing this one for.
# 98 & 99 Side Rabbet Planes in Box
Both are in fine condition. One box has a Sweetheart logo. The
other has no label at all. Complete with depth stops and original
grind cutters. Very nice
# 98 & 99 Side Rabbet Planes Both are in fine condition.
One has a logo on the cutter dating it from the teens. They do not
have depth stops which is proper for this era. Very nice early examples.
# 112 Scraper Plane w/ 28 Toothing Cutter This
popular scraper plane is in very nice condition. Minor chip off front
knob. Good Handle. No pitting. Will easily clean to be fine. The # 28 toothing cutter has
lots of life in it and is nice!! Ready to go back to work!!
No. 140 Skew Rabbet Block Plane The side
comes off to make it a rabbet plane. A versatile plane that is a
favorite w/ users. This example dates from after the turn of the century.
Some nickel loss. Overall very nice condition.
148 Tongue & Grove Flooring Plane This
T & G plane is
all original, complete and in fine condition. It is the largest size
made for use on 3/4 - 1" boards and cuts the 1/4" center at 7/8".
Used to make T & G floor boards, or to make tongue & Groove joints in pieces of
furniture and the like. Nice!!
