I have a complete set of Stanley Bailey hand planers left from my deceased father in law… I have an idea what they are worth a piece but I have someone who wants to buy the whole set and am not sure what price range to quote… Added some pics…. Any help would be appreciated… Thanks

It's very, very difficult to assess value based on those pictures. It looks like there are a couple of fairly valuable planes there, but there are a lot that aren't worth very much and we don't kn I w what kind of condition they're in. Value also varies depending on your area. Here in the Northeast, tools bring lower prices than in the Southwest, for example. Where are you locared?

Here is a range for most Stanley bench planes in OK condition, nothing missing or cracked, good bit of rust but no boat anchors, and assuming no super oldies If one has a solid brass adjuster is really really old and you should think about selling it separate.

3 $60-40
4,5 $50-25
6 $65-50
7$100-75
8 $170-90 very dependent on blade length. Nice blades are an easy $50.
I think I can spot one 4 1/2 $120-70 same for 5 1/2.

The 10 150-100, If its a 10 1/4 ~1500-300 collectable, very dependent on condition of wood.

Random colorful block $10-0
Block with an adjustable mouth $35-20
Looks like you got a 140 in there 120-80, Needs to be complete with decent length blade. Typically missing side plate and side screws. Original screws have vertical knurling and were never brass. Brass == replacement.

Like said before, prices are dependent on area. These are what you can expect on ebay including shipping.

Thank you everyone for your replies… Actually helped a great deal…. I am located in the northwest…. I will have to get some better pics of the ones I think are of most value also want to note that most are stamped 1902-1910 as well as earlier dates if that makes a difference.??

Hey Mike, please don't take this as a criticism, because it's not intended that way at all. It's just a suggestion intended to be helpful. When referring to these tools, call them planes or hand planes rather than planers. To hand plane enthusiasts, the term planer is like fingernails on a chalkboard, and is a clear tip-off that the seller isn't knowledge about the tools. Planer more commonly refers to the power tool used for dressing lumber to a desired thickiness.

Where are you located. The ability to look at them could increase the value substantially. My reason for buying would be to clean up, restore and resell, so I'd pay less than the guy who just wants users. Finding a guy who just wants users to buy the whole set would be much more difficult IMHO. So breaking up the set would maximize the profit, but increase the needed attention.

+2 to Bobs statement as well.

The other thing that intrigues me is, how are they hung up? Hanging holes decrease the value, and I hope they are not hung by the mouth!

I to thought we were just helping as well. There is nothing wrong with selling on this site, but it helps to be cordial. Maybe I also misunderstood the "jeez"
