If the plough and combination planes in the first pic are included in that $25/plane deal snatch them up quick. I would think they would be very useful things, but I can’t afford one so I can’t speak with much authority.

If the draw knives and spokeshaves are in good shape I’d see how much much he wants for those. $10-$15 for a draw knife is a pretty good deal. I don’t know what spokeshaves go for.

As others have said most of those metal bodied planes in the second pic look like $5 planes to me. There might be an exception or two.

Not a woodworking tool, and not an antique but if you ever strip electrical wire that plier looking thing in the bottom left hand corner of the first pic below the fencing pliers is very nice tool.
