I've lost out on a few of these on ebay recently, but finally managed to get one!

7am the postie called, I was dead to the world so SWMBO rushed down.

Hmm, nicely packed!



Ah hah, ALF will be proud of me!



Even instructions!



All the cutters seem to be there



All seems in pretty mint condition











So ALF is it all there? Am I missing anything? I only got it for the odd job when I can't be bothered to take the router out the woodrat, or just to tidy up the odd here and there. Honestly guv!

Hi ho, hi ho, it's down The Slope we go,
With a chisel and plane and Ebay name,
Hi ho, hi ho. :lol:

Looks very crispy indeed, Adam. Doubt it's ever been out of the box, much less tasted wood. Never mind, you can soon put that right, back permitting. :wink: Nice gloat. :p

Cheers, Alf

Nice buy Adam

As Alf said earlier it looks mint and unused. I generally steer clear of ebay for personal reasons (cowardice really, mrs T might be miffed when the credit card hits the limit) but am tempted with bargains like that on there.

Gives us a review when your back is up to using it

Cheers

Tony

Seen as a couple of people asked, I paid £51, and the auction can be found here

The more I look at it, the more I realise it really is in completely mint condition. Not a scratch, mark, or scuff on it anywhere, and even the varnish on the handle is in perfect condition.

Hi Adam

That diazapam hs obviously gone to your head. Watch out or we'll have Alf giving them out at all of the woodwork shows. :wink:

Seriously though, it really is in mint condition. Well done.

Hope you return to normal soon. :roll:

Cheers

Very nice Adam, well done.

Errm, don't suppose there's any chance you could upload a scan of the manual somewhere is there? (grovel, grovel, grovel)

Cheers,
Barry

It has to asked, what is Normal :wink:
An interesting question, Dave. For Neil, I think normal applies to anything that has a plug and "Jet" written down the side. For me, abnormal is anyone only having one combination plane. I think my definition, while having merit, is probably fairly unusual. :roll:

Cheers, Alf

Adam,

Looks very clean and I believe you migh even manage to get it into your workshop! Where are you going to put the shavings though? I see no DC connection.

Never mind they are like a number 9 bus.

I do set my limit and certainly stick to it with postage taken into consideration.

Adam I wood :wink: have been gutted if I had only £50 for that excellent example if I was a seller.Mint condition, excellent, ended right time of the day if you are a buyer but not for a seller (every ones in work).
Enjoy your purchase
