SOLD: This was my first real plough plane, which I purchased from Ray Iles about 10,000 years ago. I used this plane for all my drawer grooves until I switched to a wooden plough.
This Record 043 is in excellent working order. It includes the three stock irons (1/4″, 3/16″ and 1/8″), which are fully sharpened and ready to go. Heck I even have the original stock cardboard sleeve for the irons.) All the plane’s controls work perfectly. There is not a spec of rust on the tool and it has most of its original plating.
Price: $85 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 email@example.com.
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.
