HANDTOOLS: Stanley #5 C - Crispy, very Crispy
#5
  
Here's a vintage Stanley #5, corregated, very crispy. Metal is solid with no cracks or issues, all original, japanning is 99.99%, rosewood is solid with no cracks, almost full iron; I squared off the iron, mated the chipbreaker and sharpened a 25 deg. bevel on the iron, its ready to go to work as can be seen from the pictures, pulls shavings nicely. No apologies. Very nice, and crisp plane, not much else to say, the pics tell the story. Will make someone a great user. Further attention to honing the iron will only improve performance. See pics in the Flickr album linked below.  Here's a teaser pic:





Yours for $65 plus shipping. First PM with an unequivocal "I'll take it" gets priority, and please include your full shipping address in the PM so I can print mailing labels and quote shipping. Sorry, I don't have paypal, I'm an old dog and that's a new trick, so payment by USPS money order please, unless I know you from the forum, then checks are just dandy.

Below is the link to the Flickr album so you can enlarge the pics and get a good look, she's a beaut.....
I have a feeling this won't last very long, so if you've got a puptent in your Wranglers for it, pull the trigger......

Can't believe this is still here.  If I didn't have one that Tom reground, I'd be jumping on this.
