I am desperate to make some room in my shop by getting rid of excess tools. These tools will only be here a short while. If they don't sell, I will donate them.
There are no prices listed, because any offer, no matter how ridiculous, will be considered. I'll either accept your offer right away, or I might wait a bit to see if a higher offer comes in before I accept yours. If you want some great tools for less, send me an offer. I thought this would be a good idea, but it turns out most people are afraid of offending me. I'll put some rough prices down, but no cheeky offer will cause offense. Let me know what you can do, and I'll take pity, I promise!
There are a couple tools I might not be ready to part with yet, I'll let you know.
You can contact me by email:
Or by WhatsApp, Facebook, Telegram, etc.
Shipping in Europe is no problem. Actual shipping cost is added to the purchase. I can ship anywhere else, too. Check with me as I bet I can find a good deal on shipping to the US.
Check back often, I will update this page often. New items will be at the top of the post.
Ohio #O22 Transitional Plane, Lakeside - 60 Euros
This is a cute little #2 sized transitional plane. It's in great shape, but I think it has been rehabbed by whoever I bought it from. It looks like the casting was spray painted black (it looks like it could have originally been red), and the wooden body tastefully cleaned up, and then sealed with some kind of film finish. It should be a fun user.
Send me your offer, and in a week or two I'll take the highest one, if there are multiples.
Ohio #O5 Rough Bench Plane - 30 EurosThis plane looks rough, but it would be a pretty straightforward rehab, making a fine user plane. The horn on the tote is long gone, but everything else is still there. Even some green paint on the lever cap.
Ohio #O5 Bench Plane - 40 EurosThis one is in much better shape. I guess someone before I got ahold of it had rehabbed it. The body appears to have been repainted at some point, but it looks very good and should be a great user.
Ohio #O4 1/4 Bench Plane - 90 EurosI'll be honest, I don't know much about this plane. I don't think it's particularly rare, but it's also not too easy to find. I've been scared to do anything with it since I got it years ago, so I haven't done anything with it since then. If it's been messed with, it wasn't me.
Fulton No. 3710 (#4 Size) Bench Plane by Millers Falls - 15 EurosFulton planes made by Millers Falls are amazing. Fulton planes made by some of the other makers they used: it's a crap shoot. This one has a lot going for it. It was rehabbed and shined up by the previous owner. He even put a replica decal on the handle. Everything works well, and the blade is still very sharp. Like proper-woodworking sharp.
Ohio #O30 Transitional Bench Plane - 40 EurosAt least I think it says O30. I bought this one from a tool "restorer." The restoration was more aggressive than I like, but it looks cool now. Supposedly there was very little japanning left. The previous owner did detect some of the red Japanning on it, so he painted it red. I've never seen another one, so I have no idea how authentic it is.
Ohio #O7 Bench Plane with a Hock Iron - 60 EurosI know this plane works, as I've used it, just not very much. It probably needs a bit more tuning. I suspect there isn't a #7 iron in my box of spare Ohio irons, as there is a fancy Hock iron in it. I would be willing to sell the iron separately from the plane, if that helps.
Crescent Mfg. Co. Block Plane - 15 EurosThis block plane was manufactured in New York, which makes me think it could be Ohio, but I don't really know. It is a standard angle, and nothing special. I'm sure it'll work just fine, but it isn't a Lie-Nielsen.
Ohio #O4 Bench Plane - 40 EurosThis is the first Ohio plane I ever got, and it inspired me to get all of the others. It was thoughtfully rehabbed by the previous owner, and this guy just put it into working order. It does indeed work very, very well. It has a plastic handle, but don't let that put you off. It's one of the most comfortable handles I've ever used on a plane. There's not a lot left on the iron, but I bet it will last you for many years to come. I might even be able to find a replacement blade in my box o'Ohio Plane Blades, if you like. One of the things that makes these planes special is the thick, tapered plane blade. One of the few companies that did that.
Stanley #12 Scraper with Hock Blade - 60 Euros
Here's a fun tool. I'm afraid it isn't for the collector because someone drilled holes in the sole so they could attach a wooden sole to it, instead of buying a much more expensive plane. When I got it it didn't have a blade, so I bought a new Hock blade for it, and the brass blade tension screw was bent, so Jonas from Mulesaw was kind enough to make me a replacement on his lathe. I still have the bent screw and will include it, if you think you want it.

Two Cool Gauge Planes - Both for 100 Euros
A while back I went crazy on American eBay, when I could still get domestic shipping. Most of this stuff came from me thinking all this stuff would be cool. Don't get me wrong, it is cool, but it's all gotta go. These are two planes that I haven't seen in Europe before. They are cool because of the clever mechanism they use to hold the blade and keep it square. I couldn't really comment on their function, other than the smoother takes shavings. I tried it once. The jointer is ready to go after a good sharpening, but I've never used it myself.
They were both in a lot worse shape when I got them - especially the smoother. With that one I did a pretty aggressive rehab, so it probably looks a bit shinier. I rehabbed the jointer with a bit more of a gentle approach. It is clean and functional, but I left as much patina as possible.
Don't let the price scare you, I'm ready to bargain for them. These are cool planes. They came from different sellers, so I am willing to split them up if you don't want both.
Ohio #O7 Jointer - 80 Euros
I'm really proud of the rehab job I did on this one. This one was pretty crusty, but I did a thoughtful, gentle rehab on it returning it to rust and dirt free condition. All of the historical patina is still there.
Along with the horn broken off of the tote.
Regardless, this should be a fine user. The thing that made me fall in love with Ohio planes is the thick tapered blade they came with. Once fettled, these planes are monster workhorses. They are also very comfortable to use.
I'd love to see this plane in the hands of someone who will use the snot out of it. But mostly, I'd love to see it in someone else's shop. One can only use so many jointers.
Ohio #O5 Jack Plane - 65 EurosHere is another workhorse. I also did my best to do a gentle rehab on this one. No surface rust or dirt, lots of historical patina. This one has the super-thick mongo tapered blade. This will make someone very happy to use every day.
Swedish #3 Sized Plane Blade with Matching Chipbreaker - CheapThis is some great Swedish steel that will work well in your #3. I don't know what it is, but I love Swedish steel. When I'm asked why, I can only say that it feels better on oilstones, and it gets wicked sharp. It wouldn't break my heart to keep this one.
Hellstedt #3 Swedish Plane with (or without) Veritas PMV-11 Blade - 60 Euros
I bought this plane to raid the EA Berg blade and chipbreaker from to use in my Stanley #3. It turns out this chipbreaker works best in this plane, and since it didn't have a blade, I put the Veritas blade in it. I'm pretty sure I have that blade rolling around, and if you'd prefer it with the original blade (I would), I'll swap that out for this one.
I also can sell you the PMV-11 blade separately. It looks weird in this plane.
I'll be honest, I've hardly used this plane. My Stanley #3 is awesome, and this is just a spare collecting dust.
The rear tote has been broken in half at some point in it's history. The repair is ugly, but it holds solidly and it feels OK in my hand.
Ohio Transitional Smoother with 2 inch BladeThis plane is in the condition in which I recieved it. I have no idea if it works well or not, but there's no reason it shouldn't. It has a heavy blade and seems to have been used very little. Unfortunately I don't know enough about this plane to post a price, so make a fair offer and it's yours.
Very Old Stanley Blade and Chipbreaker for a Transitional Plane - 15 EurosThis is a beautiful, very old Stanley iron and chipbreaker for a transitional plane. It should still work perfectly for this, but some knucklehead in history thought it would work just fine as a blade for a metal bench plane if he just cut another slot (rather crudely) in a different place. If you have an original chipbreaker it might work, but it might not. This needs to go.
Veritas 2" Chip Breaker for a #4 or #5 plane - 30 EurosI think this could be one of the best upgrades to your old Stanley plane that you could do.
Old American Drill Index with Many Drill Bits - 3.27 Euros or LessCheck out these pics.
Veritas Scraper Hook Former - 15 EurosThis works great. If you polish the edge of your scraper, this will put a fine hook on it. I used it for a long time until I figured out how to do it without this single use tool.
World's Ugliest #51 SpokeshaveBuy something and I'll throw this in for free. I have no idea what brand it is, and it is missing the main screw. Nonetheless, it deserves a home somewhere other than the dump.
NIB Lee Valley Three-Legged Campaign Stool Hardware - 30 EurosI actually would like to build one of these someday, and on that day I'll regret having sold this.
Record Stay Set #04 Smoother - 50 Euros
Millers Falls #2 Eggbeater Hand Drill (Restored) - 100 Euros
|Sadly there are no drill bits in here.|
Record #04 Smoother - 25 Euros
Lie Nielsen 1/2" (13mm) Chisel - 35 Euros
Used, but cared for.
Lie Nielsen 1/10" (2.5mm) Mortise Chisel - 50 Euros
Again, used but cared for.
Ohio O6 - 50 Euros
This is a very nice plane that was rehabbed by a previous owner. The incorrect blade was replaced with an Ohio Tools blade and chipbreaker, but it is not as thick as some of the other Ohio blades I have seen. Still, it will be a good user and easy to get running, as most of the hard work is done.
