Anyone collect woodworking planes?
« on: February 05, 2020, 05:50 PM »
I have quite a few planes that I collected years ago.  Now I have downsized my home and do not have any room.  Wondering if there is a good source to find the value of these planes.  Here are a couple that are in perfect condition and appear to have never been used or very lightly used.  The 78 has some paper towel fuzz on it from wiping the dust off.

Don,  I have bought and sold numerous old handtools from Josh Clark at hyperkitten.com.  Supertool was mentioned already and the owner of that site (Patrick Leach) has a HUGE amount of information there to review.  I have also bought quite a few tools from him.

When I lived in the UK, I got to some of the "antique consignment shops" If I found a tool I liked or found interesting, Id buy it. I bought this one back saw and out of curiosity I wanted to know what it was worth. So I just googled it (manufacturer etc) and found quite a bit of info. One guy collected those saws.

Anyway, its what i did

Nope, I don't collect handplanes. I only have about a dozen.

I have got hold of a few European horned and English wooden planes recently.
I like em, good workers.
Better in a workshop where they can be left set on a rack instead of in a van toolsafe where the blades need backed off at the end of the day though.

Actually, a couple of days ago two Japanese planes got delivered and I realised I *collect* them. Must have 9 or 10 now…
