I have one very similar and it works great and fun to use. And that is a fairly decent price, usually go for $60-150 unless special/collector etc.

Having seen so many fake “antique” wooden items I wouldn’t buy based on pics alone thinking it old. At 85 bux you might see the utility of the plane though.

It just looks lke a “restored” one to me. Somebody probably cleaned it up, sanded the skate, replaced all the screws with what looks like wrong ones, and made a new wedge for it. They probably picked up a t a flea market for a few bucks and trying to make a profit. But if you get it working and it has a 1/4” iron, they work great for drawer grooves.

Have your say...
