Where Have All The Old Tools Gone...

Where have all the old tools gone?
Long time passing
Where have all the old tools gone?
Long time ago
Where have all the old tools gone?
Young men picked them every one
When will they ever learn?
When will they ever learn?



Ok, lets face the new reality...eBay really sucks for vintage tools.


The question everyone is asking...
...where did all the sellers go?

Getting Rid Of Duplicates #3...

Tue, 05/02/2017 - 11:28am
Up for sale, I have a Veritas Small Plow Plane with Fence, Depth Shoe and five (5) Imperial Standard Blades.

This is Lee Valley's Right-Handed Small Plow Plane.

This is a great little plane that Lee Valley gave me in lieu of payment for a cartoon that reflected some customers' confusion about Veritas' new style of saw and block plane that were introduced in 2008.

Here is the earning cartoon...


And this is the one that their designer wanted, but wasn't used for publication...


This is a great little plane that I have used to plow slots for bottoms in drawers, all the way up to plowing shadow lines in risers on a 3-tier balcony and deck system on a hot-shot's cottage. it has never given me a lick of trouble and the A2 steel blades show little signs of use.

While this plane hasn't been modified to accept Lee Valley Beading Blades, it is capable of being modified.

Lee Valley sells this plane with the five blades for $329.00 Canadian. I'm selling this really clean, used one for $225.00 Canadian.

Face-To-Face Delivery is available in the Greater Toronto Area for no additional charge.
Cash is the only accepted payment for Face-To-Face Deliveries.
I only accept PayPal for payment, when a face-to-face delivery is not possible. 
I ship using the Postal Service only.
I will only charge what the post office charges me for shipping, and do not add on any additional amount of time or shipping materials.
I will fully refund the cost of the tool plus any shipping charges if the tool is found to be not in "as claimed" condition, or there is a problem with the tool that does not show up in the photos.

$225(CAN) firm.

The plane is clean, with no signs of rust or pitting...
...on either side.
The skate is in almost "as-new" condition.
The Blade Holding Mechanism works like its new.
This is what comes with the Plane: one Depth Shoe, one Fence,
and five Imperial Standard Blades
The Blades are in great shape from their front surface...
...to their back surface.
The stock Veritas Tote shows some toolbox
dings, but it is still in great shape with
great grain and colour...
...and it is just as clean on the right side
as it is on the left.
A cool tool that belongs in your hands.

Peace,

Mitchell
