Topic tags/keywords: for sale skil 100 plane planer skil

I am downsizing and selling some tools I have had for a while. This one happens to be new in the box. One (1) SKIL 100 PLANE PLANER, 7.5 Amps, Type 4, 115 Volts, 3 Inch, s/n H153419. I bought this Skil 100 in November 1980 at Dixie Construction Products in Atlanta. I am the original and only owner. It is still NEW! It has been stored in its original box inside my home ever since. It has NEVER cut wood, foam, or anything else. The blades have never been installed. It has all the original new parts. When you open the box it is just like it came new from the Skil factory.

I have posted additional full-size photos of this Skil 100 plane and its accessories to review at the Dropbox link below:

https://www.dropbox.com/sh/v3kkhhtp01josb7/AAAGxplN2tRZRj6BYYqZrdJ-a?dl=0

Please look at the photos and you will notice;
1) The overall condition is factory new.
2) There is no rust or corrosion on any part.
3) The original box is still like new inside and out. The bottom of the box still has shiny copper coated staples inside and out which tells you that this tool has been properly stored.
4) On the photos showing the fan housing end if you zoom in on the steel motor fan you will see it is rust free and factory clean.
5) The power cord plug contacts are still bright and unused.
6) The base plate (sole) is in factory new condition, unaltered, and approximately 17-3/4 inches long

This is a rare opportunity to travel back in time 38 years! If anyone is interested let me know and we can discuss price.

I have that same tool that I bought new in 1970ish and have put
some heavy use on it.

the seller’s name is Vern and the last contact I had with him
is that he does not follow the internet much and he wants
$2200.00 + shipping for the planer. (which is way out of my playground).

LOL yep – that’s what the man said.

as in my earlier post, I bought a new one at a government surplus auction
in the early ‘70s for (I think) around $35.00 – yeah Thirty Five US Dollars.
and I have used the smack out of it on the original blades that have never
been sharpened. (the drive belt has been replaced once) planing mostly
two-by redwood and high density urethane foam. (and a few doors here and there).
I was thinking “maybe” $500.00 tops for a NIB vintage planer of such quality.
I am a tool “user” not a “collector”.
oh well – I wish him all the best.

Thanks for the info John! I agree, they are workhorses and not meant to stay in a box. I couldnt imagine firing up a brand new one.
