Ready Made 7 inch Transitional Smoothing Plane Collection
15 planes $175 for the lot plus shipping (TBD)

Collecting planes can be exhausting. Going to garage sales, estate sales, antique tool shops, tool group meets and especially eBay. Who has time for all that nonsense? Now, I have taken the work and stress out of collecting by offering to you this beginner's set of some of the hardest to find collectable transitional planes in the popular 7 inch (smallest) size and at a ridiculously low price. Most are in great condition, some are in less great condition which gives the new owner the opportunity to fix them up (at no extra charge). I've jotted some notes on condition and included a few photos. If that's not good enough for you, let me know via email and I'll take a couple more of any specific plane you are worried about. Now, I'm not going to take 20 photos of each plane so you can feel comfortable, so be judicious in your request and I'll work with you. I will tell  you that with a couple of exceptions, these planes are intact, some have been "japan enhanced" one has a replaced body, two have broken or damaged laterals, all have checking and a few cracks because 120 year old wood does that. I cannot verify originality or authenticity but all are marked with appropriate markings by recognized manufacturers and/or resellers

Now, depending on where you live in relationship to me, shipping may be a consideration. Each of these cute little buggers weigh in at just under 3 pounds so the total weight of all 18 is going to be around 55 pounds, plus or minus, not including shipping medium and a box(s) to put them in. I'm willing to pack them up for free (or  "at cost" if special packaging is needed) and take them to a local shipper but the buyer is on the hook for the cost of getting them to you. If I do it it will probably be like UPS or a local shipping company. I'm not inclined to spend hours looking for the cheapest method but if you want to, knock yourself out and I'll do my best to make it happen on this end.  I'd do local pick up or even meet you half way, (depending on how far I have to drive. Gas ain't cheap) if you don't live too far away.

So now's your chance to start or enhance your own personal rabbit hole while I make some much needed shelf space in mine.
