Low Angle Block Planes
& Other Block Planes
Note: The throats on all of the planes are good unless otherwise noted. Many sellers of block planes never address and buyers are never told of the condition of this critical aspect. These planes are prone to damage w/ stress cracks at the edges, or chips along the edge and the condition of the throat needs to be considered.
Stanley # 61 Block Plane The type 1 # 61 Low Angle Stanley block plane is just under 6 " long and does not have a moveable front. The knob looks oversize in this pic, but i believe it is proper. They date from 1902 or earlier. The throat is nice. It is typically in demand more as a collector piece than a user given the non adjustable throat and is a hard to find little block plane.
Good +. . . . . $75.00
Craftsman # 3732 (#65) Low Angle Block Plane The condition of this nice looking low angle block plane is great. It looks like it was never used. I always thought these were made by Stanley, but have also read that Sears offered ones made by Millers Falls as well. In either case it is of the same high quality that either of those outfits produced with the only differences being the Sears name in the side, on the cutter, and the lifetime warranty that the others never offered.

Stanley # 65 1/2 Low Angle Block Plane This is either an early 65 or 65 1/2. The throat is OK. It has seen lots of use, but it is still a good usable plane. Nice.

Stanley # 95 Edge Trimming Block Plane These are an interesting plane that Stanley first introduced back in 1911. They are useful for their intended purpose of cleaning rabbits and squaring up the edge of boards. A nice plane in exceptional condition.

Stanley # 131 Double Ended Block Plane The #131 is the upgraded version of the classic #130 seen above. These planes were offered for approximately 40 years starting right after the turn of the century. It has a unique design where you flip the adjuster back or forth to seat the plane on. This adjuster is often cracked as it can be flipped only when the screw is let out enough and it will crack if forced. This one is not cracked, but does have a minor issue. The small tab to engage the cutter is missing on one side as can be seen. It would be an easy fix as it is nothing more than a press fit nib. This is really not an issue as the adjuster can simply be turned over and the other side is fine. Other than that the overall condition is very nice.
