The Store

Periodically, I will post items that I have for sale.  The list changes frequently as I also sell on eBay under the handle nicmk.  This COVID thing has really messed with my ability to acquire inventory and consequently I am running very low on the most popular sizes and brands. I still have a few and if you have a particular need, holler out to me and I'll see what I can do to help you out.


If, when I start listing more stuff, you see something that interests you, you may contact me at and I will 1. Answer questions, 2. Send more photos, or 3. Be happy to sell you something. 

Unless otherwise noted, each of my items is user ready, tuned, sharp and ready to go to work.  If you happen to be a perfectionist you will likely want to fine tune your new plane to meet your own personal specifications.  I will do as much work on the item as is practical but understand that it isn't a perfect specimen, never was probably even when new.  If  you're looking for perfection, design one and have it made.  Let me know as I've never seen a perfect plane before.  Generally these planes are at least 60 years old and will have typical usage marks, perhaps some pitting, bare metal staining, tool box dings and other work related injuries. 

If any look interesting, feel free to contact me directly for additional details.

If the item shows that it's been SOLD no worries.  I've got more in the queue so check back again soon. It takes some time to get them ready.  If you are interested you can contact me through this website contact page: or via my facebook page:
