The first pic is a Router, also known as an 'old woman's' tooth.
The second pic is of Spokeshaves.
The third one is a Plough Plane.
The last are Moulding planes.
The Router is for full Neandertals only, the Spokeshaves are still in common use, the Plough Plane perhaps less so
The Moulding Planes are still very useful, an electric Router can only produce certain shapes, others it cannot, undercuts for example.

Thanks Digit , i have listed the moulding planes and they appear to have sold , unsure what to do over the spokeshaves as they dont seem in demand , as for the old womans tooth think that will get slung as again seems more hassle to arrange selling , would be interested in selling the plough plane and also have a rebate plane , just want them all to go to good homes , thanks again

The hand router is a brilliant tool and very useful. It's hard to tell from your picture what make it is and what condition it is in, but assuming it's usable and you take some clearer pictures it should fetch at least £30 on eBay.
The plough looks like a Record 044 - one of their more basic models - but if you have a set of blades for it, it should fetch £15- 30.

its woodwork related, so will be fine, providing the other rules are adhered to. You already have location in your profile which is a common breach

Old womans tooths - I have only ever heard them reffered to as grannies tooths. (by the by)
I've used way out date plastic before and it may be worth getting fresh hardener- I suspect the hardener ages quicker than the plastic.
(I mean several years out of date)

Oh I don't know Roy. If I make a miscalculation with a router or a table-saw, and I make a housing slightly to shallow, the Router plane always comes in useful for making those fine corrections, ensuring that the depth is constant; like when a piece of sheet material is bowed a little, but you didn't notice. Anyhow, I still use mine, especially for under-cutting sloped housing sides! :mrgreen:

Yes they do have their uses John, it's rather a case of I just don't get on with them.
