    After watching Paul clean up the top for his Oak table using the Stanley no 80 scraper plane, I feel I must get one, What are the options I do not want to pay in excess of £100 for a new Stanley or Veritas?

    There are a few videos on you tube using them and they all seem to rate them very high

    I would appreciate any suggestions

    I have just bought a British made Stanley from eBay is pretty much mint condition for under £20. Seem to be plenty of them around. Definitely a good option.

    They turn up pretty frequently on eBay. Just make sure it has an iron. I bought a Record #80 a while ago and while it is in good condition it didn’t have an iron, which was very annoying! You can pick up replacements easily but it’s something to keep in mind.

    I Bought a Stanley 80 mint condition on ebay a week or two ago, for around £25 and it’s a wonderful thing!

    Old Stanley 80’s are not very expensive here at the old tool swaps. IMO, in good+ condition they should be priced around $20 USD, no more. I found mine at a garage sale for $10.

    I still use a number 80 scraper and used one today for another tabletop on a table I just made for my home. One thing I found was that the heavy Veritas card scraper can be cut in two with a junior hacksaw to make two full sized blades. They are comparable in thickness to the standard blade at 1mm thick. At $5 USD you get two scraper blades for $2.50 each.
