SOLD: I purchased this Lie-Nielsen No. 5-1/2 after getting to meet David Charlesworth. He does all his work with a No. 5-1/2, and I was interested to see what that was like. I bought this tool while I was at the factory shooting my first DVD with Lie-Nielsen Toolworks. Thomas Lie-Nielsen signed it on the spot after they assembled it for me.
I also bought a 50° frog for the plane at the time, so this plane comes with both the standard 45° frog and the 50° frog.
There is not a thing wrong with this tool. I’ve used the heck out of it, but there is plenty of life left in the iron. I have (hate to say) more planes than I need.
Price: $360 plus $9 domestic shipping. SOLD
About Tool Sales on My Blog
Please read this if you are interested in buying a tool. Why am I selling these tools? Read this entry before you freak out. There is no “master list” of tools that I can send you. I am working through several piles of tools and will list them when I can.
Want to see only the tools that haven’t sold? Easy. I’ve created a category for that on this blog. Click here and bookmark that page. When you visit that link, you’ll see only the tools that haven’t been sold.
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.
