I was wondering if I could find some help. I bought a bunch of old stanley planes. The person I bough them from would only sell ALL of them. So I had to buy all of them for the few that I wanted.
Here is the question. The only Stanley planes that I find for sale are ones that are in pretty bad shape. What is a restored Stanley Sweetheart plane worth? I have spent at least 3 hours on each of them lapping the sole, sharpening the blade, and cleaning a few of them up. I am enjoying bringing the planes back to life, and I want to sell the ones that I don’t want, but a can’t find any info on what they would be worth. Is there any guide to the value of restored Stanleys?
I am including a few pics of my handy work, is there anyone that can provide me with a resource for pricing restored planes?
I believe this is a #4 type 15 Sweetheart.
