Seller: joebucktool (1,202) 100%, Location: Colleyville, Texas, Ships to: US, Item: 202732302205 I have a group of three Stanley Bailey planes for sale. All three are squeaky clean and ready to use. All you need to do is sharpen the blades to your desired angle and degree of sharpness and put them to work. The No.5 is an all original Type11 (1910-1918), corrugated and probably retains 85% of its original japaning.The No.4 is a newer vintage Stanley with a smooth bottom. Plane has 100% of its original japaning but a slight loss of plating on the lever cap. Not bad but I needed to mention it.The No.3 has been completely refurbished. It had almost no finish when I got it so I decided to bring it back to life. After stripping what japaning remained I re-japaned it. There is a small crack in the knob and the tote has been repaired but both are tight. It is now in top shape and will make a great user plane. Japaning: I have collected antique tools and planes for 40+ years and was always fascinated with the Japaning process and how little information there was available about how it was done. Japaning is NOT paint. Properly japaned tools hold their finish incredibly well unless severely abused. I experimented for a number of years with various recipes until I achieved what has proved to be a high quality Japan finish. The process involves powdered Asphaltum, other key ingredients and solvents applied in multiple coats with careful timed heating at 400degs. Honestly it is much too laborious to ever be a profitable enterprise so I don't do many restorations and when I do I always disclose that fact. I try to combine shipments so if you win another of my auctions please wait on a combined invoice and I'll try to save you a little money. Condition: Used, Condition: Very good usable condition, Modified Item: No, Brand: Stanley
