Thought you might like to see what $7.50 will buy if you are at the right auction.

I collect planes, so will keep any I don't have (4 so far) and restore the rest and sell them to support the collection.

Cool, I've got a Millers falls and a Stanley that get used from time to time.

What kind of auctions are you going to? Needlepoint? Stamp collecting?

No, it was a moving to an apartment from a large house and shop auction.  After I bought the planes the owner came by while I was boxing them and asked how much I had paid.  I didn't know he was the owner and told him.  That is when he told me that there were several in the lot that he paid $10.00 to $15.00 each.

Oh man!  :))

Sounds like a desert ratt talking to me.  Oh yeah, that's right. Don't mind him - the temps have been frying up his way of late.  >:(

And here is what you can do with the rusty worthless plane that is at the back of the picture.
