Hey folks,

So the day has come, I know it will be soon or later, but unfortunately I can’t any longer continue my journey in woodworking, not having a dedicated place for all my stuff, has just make everything worst, and now my neighbors are complaining of the noise of my planer and TS… ..ohh.. well…. time to move on, and still have another hobby which also has bring lots of satisfaction to my life, “Bonsai growing”

Now, like I say, time to move on….. and hope that somebody will make a good use of my tools….I have so far 4 available for sale, but will eventually have more (actually all, including my R4511 customized with a router table and single piece rails, my Ridgid planer, less than a couple of hour of use, and my Ridgid BS with a custom car and less than 1 hour of use at all).

I’ll start with all the small stuff woodplanes, all of them are Stanley Bailey, old, the good stuff, not the cheap made new stuff, there’s some flaws on them but don’t affect the performance of the tool, so if you are looking for an excellent user plane, this is the moment you were looking for..

Anyone seriously interested send me a PM and I will follow with the instructions for payment.

Stanley Bailey No3 $35 + S&H





Stanley Bailey No7 $125 + S&H




Stanley Bailey No8 $165 + S&H



Bedrock No 607 $250 + S&H






I don’t want to get into too much detail, so judge by what you see, I’m extremely picky with my tools, and I won’t be selling crap… feel free to ask any question, I will try to answer them as soon as I can.

Ironic – I gave up my Bonsai obsession a couple of years ago. The reason is kind of sad. When I got deployed to Iraq my wife just couldn’t keep with the watering and a few got diseased. I lost so many that I that just got discouraged and let the others go. No, I dont blame her as she did the best she could.

Now, I am just getting into woodworking and gathering my tools. I am tempted to ask you to barter for all my unused bonsai supplies but I have a feeling that will probably do it again. It is very hard to start over when I years invested in the trees development and design.

Aw c’mon, Alonso!! The neighbors complain of noise, but you’re selling your most silent of tools, your planes? I know you didn’t ask for advice, but you can still make some slammin’ projects with a small and relatively quiet bandsaw as your primary sizing tool, with your awesome nicely restored planes for tooling and finishing the surfaces! Do not let stupid neighbors deny you the lifestyle of choice, just downscale a bit and make smaller projects and find your way out of this without giving up your love of woodwork!

@ poopiekat

Trust me, this is something that I’ve been thinking for at least a month ago, I love woodworking, I love my tools, but there’s also some other “little” family issues that I would not like to talk about here, that pushed me to take this decision. I know is the best, its been a fun ride, I learned a lot from all my plane restorations and all my little projects that I made, but now its time to move on and perhaps who knows, maybe when I get another place in the middle of nowhere, without annoying neighbors around for miles, maybe then I could get back to woodworking.

@ Purplev

Thanks for your good wishes Sharon, I learned a lot from you, in fact your great R4511 set up made me take the decision to get one, so you been an inspiration to me too. Thanks for the splitter diagrams it was pretty useful.


I totally understand how you feel about the lost of your Bonsais, whoever get into this hobbie, builds a relatio nship with every single tree, I know sounds sick but its the true, you see them growing, changing colors, dropping leaves, its as close as if you are taking care for a little babie….its so sad when they die on you an that could happen so easily…..... just in case you would like to swap a few tools, I’m looking for some good Japanese brand tools like…

Soil Sieve Set
Soil Scoops (metal not plastic)
Bonsai Leaf Trimming Shears
Root And Sod Cutter
Root Pick
Branch Bender
Bonsai Tweezers
Spherical Knob Cutter
Concave Branch Cutter
Trunk Splitter
Wire Cutter
Root Rake/Spatula

Perhaps I can make a good use of some of them, and you could make a good use of some of my planes.. :) let me know please.
