Thread: Bailey #4

  1. #1

    Bailey #4

    I have a reconditioned Stanley Bailey #5 for sale. It is flat so there is no extra work that needs to be done. The blade has been resurfaced so there is no or very little stoning to get it prefect. The secondary bevel has been ground so all that needs to be done is to put on the micro bevel. Tote and knob are the black lacquer finish. The japanning is about 85-90 %.

    Asking $85 plus $15 shipping,

    Not half as bad as you figure it'll be before it's happened.

    My guess is that it is a 5 like the post says and not a 4 like the title says. Which is it, Tom?
    Rustic? Well, no. That was not my intention!

    I am sorry I made a mistake, I realized the title said 4 but I don't know how to edit it.

    It is still for sale and you will have to go high dollar to get one as flat or ready to go.

    Tom, Not sure but if you click on thread tools it might let you edit the title. It works that way on some other forums I am on. Good luck with your sale.

    It may have been possible to change during the first 24 hours.

    There was someone in Neanderthal Haven looking for a #5. He may have been told it was sold.

    Sorry, Tom. That was me with the wrong information. I saw Bill’s interest and assumed he’d end up with it. Thanks for setting the record straight, Jim.

    I wish I wanted this plane, because you’d already have my payment. Good luck!

    Sorry for adding to the confusion folks. I thought it was a #4 and grabbing one from you, Tom, would be great, which is why I jumped on it so quickly. But already have a #5 type 11. Still looking for a #4, really would like a type 11.

    How about I settle the confusion with a purchase. . I will PM you Tom this evening.

    The plane is sold pending payment, All is well that ends well.

    It is okay Bill my mistake not yours. Believe me everyone is looking for type 11 or 12 in any size. I believe the only difference is an 11 has a low knob and 12 has a high knob.

    Yes. And I prefer the low knob type 11. Since I have #3 and #5 type 11's, I figure I may as well make a matched set. If you find one, let me know. Thanks.

    I keep all my planes in airtight, waterproof tool boxes. Every time Tom posts one for sale, I have to go check again to see if I can get another one in one of those boxes. So far, no luck, but I have to keep checking. It's also a good thing there are no empty cubbies in the set I keep my plane boxes in, or it would be easy to add another tool box.
