I have a Stanley No. 6 and a No. 3 for sale
I’m asking 55 dollars each plus shipping or best offer

The handles are in very good shape. The No. 6 has the owners name stamped lightly onto the side of the body
The No. 3 has a heart on the blade.

I have plenty of planes, but just to help you, I would say that you need to post more photos. There are particular areas of the plane that need to be seen in order to determine when it was made and the condition of critical parts.

In particular, the area between the rear handle and the blade mounting assembly (frog) has some markings sometimes cast into it. Also it is importat to see that area to find if there is a frog adust screw. The logo on the blade is important and a close photo of that would help. Also the lateral adjuster lever has some markings on it that are good to see.

If they are Stanley planes they seem to have been made prior to 1933, but that’s all I can tell from what you hzve shown.

Ah, I see you have 2 other threads with more photos. I think you are offering them at a good price. Probably somebody here will buy them.

I agree with Ocelot the prices are good, I am working on self control so I am going to say I already have a No. 6 and No. 3 and don’t need another one

Only 1 of each, Notw?

I have 5 no 6’s and 3 (or so) no 3’s.

You have room for more, man!

If I were not giving away a plane today (that I bought from drsurfrat), I would be tempted on these.

To clarify, I’m not actually giving away a plane. It’s rent on some clamps I borrowed…. 10 months ago.

The No 3 seems to be a type 6 (1888-91) because of the lateral lever, the wood knob and tote seem consistent. The blade is a ‘SweetHart’ (memorial to William Hart) from 1923-36. The chipbreaker is not original to either plane or blade (never had rounded corners).
The No 6 seems to be a type 10 (1907-09) or 11 (1910-18). Type 10 has two ‘02 patent dates cast in the bed behind the frog, type 11 has a third from ‘10. The blade should have either a type 10 logo (arched Stanley) or type 11 (coveted “V” logo)to be consistent in era, otherwise highly likely it was replaced with a notched logo iron

Those are good prices, and those planes will be good users.
