The largest bench plane on the left would be a good
deal at $25. The other bench planes would be a pass,
based on what I can see here. The 2 next to it look
like fore planes. Even fixed up with new knobs
I doubt those two would sell for much more than $25
each on ebay.

He probably wants more than $25 each for the
combo planes but some of those would be real
good buys for that.

That big shave/scraper with the wood handles might
be a good piece. Not too collectible maybe but
it might be a useful tool to have and that sort
of tool is not very common. Spokeshaves,
drawknives and bench planes are common old
tools so the values are not real high generally.
That doesn’t mean they aren’t worth having
because they are very useful, but don’t buy
tools in poor condition unless it’s like for a buck
a piece and you have the inclination to track
down parts and spend time cleaning them up.
