    I ran across this specialty plane the other day when I went to visit The Tool Farmer (a fellow that deals in antique tools). It is a Stanley 100 1/2 squirrel tail curved soled block plane. I will be using it to scoop out wooden chair seats. I have been testing it out, it does a great job.

    HaHa Its all about the money with Eddy 🙂 I’m going to send you some WD40 my friend, its great for anything that’s tight, or seized up. Thought you could give your wallet a quick spray HaHa.

    Thanks guys.

    I did not know what they commonly sold for, so a first I walked away from the deal. Then I check E-Bay on my phone before I left flea market. After seeing the wide range of prices on internet. I returned to make the purchase.

    I believe I got a very fair deal. It is in great shape, all I did is sharpen the blade. I paid $40 USD.

    Nice find at a decent price. $40 for a quality tool is hard to beat.
