SOLD: I bought this plane when Lie-Nielsen first began producing the 4-1/2. Then I upgraded the chipbreaker when the “improved chipbreaker” became available. Then I added an A2 iron to it and a 55° frog (the original frog and iron are on other planes now and are not included with this one — sorry).
This plane is well-broken in. No apologies save for a few dings to the paint.
In recent years I’ve migrated to using much smaller smoothing planes. I know that’s not the way the world is heading now, but oh well. So I’m putting this one up for sale.
Price: $280 plus $8 shipping.
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.
