Stanley?

Local Craigslist ad. I'm pretty the seller is mistaken. Shouldn't "no 5" be cast onto the toe of the plane if it were a vintage tool?

It's a Stanley, just a fairly recent one that doesn't fit into the type study.

These were made in the late 1970's. I just sold one that was in the original shipping box. The postage label said "June 1979".

I guess "vintage" depends on the context. Some of the clothes I wore in 1979 might be considered vintage. Bench planes made in 1979? Not so much.

If you are going down a river at 2 mph and your canoe loses a wheel, how much pancake mix would you need to shingle your roof?

Run, don't walk, away. Garbage masquerading as a plane. Frog mating is horrible. Good for planing doors, if that, no, really a doorstop. A $5 plane if you want to torture yourself getting it to work properly. I pass on these all the time, even at $5.

thanks for the input. At first glance it seems to look like a nice solid, clean tool but its more than meets the eye I guess. I'm always trolling around town for some used planes but unfortunately there are no knowledge, let alone reputable, tool sellers anywhere to be found.

That can work in your favor, if you know what you're looking for.
