HANDTOOLS:Crispy, and I mean Crispy, PreWar #5C
#6
  
Here's one of the nicest corregated jack planes I've ever come across; its a Type 16 #5C, rosewood is excellent, 98%++ japanning, all oringinal, iron stamped "440" dating the plane to precisely the fourth quarter of 1940, sole excellent as well as the mouth, full iron, metal 100%, zero apologies on this one, if it had a box it would be collector quality. I squared off the iron and did a quick sharpening on the Tormek, and ground the chipbreaker too, it performs as it should.   It can be yours for $50 plus shipping, pics:
















Pics continued (limit is 5, don't know why....????)
















First PM with an unequivocal "I'll take it" gets priority; I don't have paypal, so payment by USPS money order please, if I know you then a check is ok with me, and please include with your PM the shipping address so I can figure postage.

This is a really, really nice example of a #5, and to boot, its corregated and precisely dated.  You won't  be sorry.  If you've got a hankering for one of these, don't hesitate as I have a feeling it will go pretty quickly, so pull the trigger.

Thanks for looking.

Indeed it is.  Well worth the money when you consider the price of beater number fives. It's getting hard to find planes in such nice condition.
