I would do the No5 Jack, would do a direct message but need more posts to qualify (feels like us lurkers are discouraged from that)

So – you thought about it for some number of days, then posted the 102 for sale. 4 days later you get an offer you accept. Two hours later you change your mind and rescind, placing the 60-1/2 up for sale instead.

I don’t mind. Until you get my money it’s your stuff. I’m just curious what was the trigger in those two hours? I don’t get seller’s remorse until I’ve shipped – I’m looking to learn the early-warning signals, is all.

Good luck with the sale. FWIW – I’ve never before found the difference between used LN and new to be enough to accept the downside risk. This was such a small $ at stake that I let fly. Karma’s a funny thing, eh? :)

Highland is only 12 minutes away….......... so if I get an urgent need, I’m covered.

Regards

I still consider myself a beginning woodworker. I’ve only been doing it about 2 years. I bought the 60 1/2 because that was the recommended block plane per Lie Nielsen. Later I attended a Lie Nielsen tool event and I liked the size of the 102 in my hands so I bought it. I never really used either tool until last night. That’s why I had decided to sell one of them the prior week (keeping the 60 1/2 since Lie Nielsen recommends it).

Last night I was working on a project that actually needed a block plane and the 102 just worked better for me for some reason. So, I’m reversing my decision to sell it. I’m keeping my 102 and selling the 60 1/2 now.

By the way, if you find the used vs. new price on tools to not be worth it and you live 12 minutes from Highland then why did you even message me?

Hey – I get it. All friendly here. That makes perfect sense to me. I was just wondering about the timing of it all…........

I had the 60-1/2 and then got the 60-1/2 rabbet version. Sold off the standard 60-1/2 to fund a 140. Also have nicely restored a Keen Kutter K220. Oh – and a $12 Stanley red/black 102 from a Sears ages ago.

Your 102 is definitely more comfortable than the 60-1/2 for general use. Lighter weight, more maneuverable. Cool plane. If I had to have only one of all of these, I’d probably land on the 60-1/2 rabbet, but it is a close call either way with no wrong answers.

I just took a notion on your 102 – It was there, I said “hey – fair deal – why not save a few bucks – original owner who has good stuff like LN and Bad Axe – should be fine” No big deal. Wasn’t a pressing need, kinda an impulse, so no harm done here. In fact, I have taken the Highland display model for a test drive nearly every time I go in there. Just for fun.

Who knows – maybe next time I walk out with it. Lord knows their Auriou display has put enough hurts on my wallet over the past 10 years…........ That is the risk of a trip to Highland. I never walk out with ONLY the thing I went to get.

More tools have come into and gone out of my hands over the last 20 years than I can remember. Money is just the marker as tools move through the cosmosphere to their True and Proper Destination. The 60-1/2 is’t supposed to be yours, and the 102 is. Tool Gods have made the call.

Best Regards
