Metallic Planes For Sale



Union Plane Co. no. 3 Small Smooth Plane.
This plane has exceptional rosewood on it and a near-perfect tote that's extra-curvy. The blade is nice and long and clean without any pitting. It's the typical extra-thick Union style blade. The side of the plane is marked "second" likely due to the casting void in the sole as shown in the photos. The sides also have either small voids or some old pitting, but the overall condition of the plane makes pitting unlikely. Still a good worker, if flawed.

Ohio no. O3C Small Smooth Plane.
This is Ohio's version of the Stanley 3C smoother. It has a good clean body and exceptional rosewood knob and tote. Ohio mostly used rosewood-painted hardwood but these appear to be actual rosewood. The plane has Ohio's standard thick, tapered iron which was intended to reduce chatter in use. It's about the thickness of a standard wooden bench plane blade and really does hold up well to chatter in difficult woods. The only flay really is a small chip in the back of the mouth opening as shown in the photos. Still a solid worker.

It has a clean body, almost all original japanning, and beautiful rosewood knob and tote without any damage at all. It has the usual thick Union blade which is in excellent conditon as well. It's a solid worker and a great example of this company's work.

Nice Small Smooth Plane made for Van Camp.
This is a Stanley no.24 that was branded for the Van Camp hardware and Iron Co. in Indianapolis, IN. It likely dates to the first quarter for the 20th century based on the design. The plane is exceptionally clean and crisp, especially for a wood-bottom plane. It has no wear and barely a scratch on it. The blade is pristine. An excellent example that would be a good worker

Union No. 23 Small Smooth Plane.
This is an earlier no 23 wood-bottom smooth plane. It measures 9in long and has a 1 3/4in wide iron. The plane is in very good working condition. The blade is exceptionally clean and has a good amount of life in it. Like most Union planes, the blade is exceptionally thick, ideal for reducing chatter. It's about twice the thickness of an equivalent Stanley blade. The wood body has some dings and scratches but the sole is pretty clean and free of damage. A good example to put to use.

Interesting Birmingham Plane Company Block Plane.
The Birmingham Plane Company operated in what is now Derby, CT. This block plane is the largest of the three sizes they made measuring 7in long and holding a 1 3/4in wide iron. This model was offered with and without a blade adjuster- this example does not have it, nor is the blade prepared to accept an adjuster. It's in fair condition overall and could definitely be used. The lever cap has a pronounced hump where the user's palm rests. As you can imagine these planes are frequently found with cracked caps. This one is intact. the blade is clean and crisp. The sides of the plane flare out a bit and there are small cast nubs to hold which make for a more comfortable and secure grip than other block planes. An interesting plane in solid user condition
