SOLD: This plane is not for collectors. There is almost no nickel plating left on the body, but it is tuned, sharpened and ready to work.
The plane measure 1-1/8″ wide with plenty of life left in the iron. I’ve completely flattened the sole (it was a mess), and the iron is sharp. All the controls work perfectly. Users won’t be disappointed. Preston planes are one of my favorites.
But it’s not much to look at.
Price: $65 plus domestic shipping SOLD.
Terms of Sale I’ll be listing these tools one-by-one. There is no master list of tools. Please don’t ask to come over to my house. Every day I list a tool I’ll post what I know about the tool, its history, plus photos of it. While you can ask me all the questions you like about the tool, the first person to send me an e-mail that says: “I’ll take it,” gets the tool. Simple. To buy a tool, please send me an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Payment: I can accept PayPal or a personal check. As soon as the funds arrive, I’ll ship the tool using USPS. If you want insurance, let me know. I’m afraid I can only ship tools in the United States. Shipping internationally is very time-consuming and paperwork-heavy. My apologies in advance on this point.
If you don’t like the tool when you get it, I’ll be happy to refund your money if you return the tool. But postage is on you.
