Just a quick tip have a specific area separate from your work bench to sharpen / flatten / clean tools saves getting rust and steel filing in your workbench.

Cheers James

Aiya I wish I could afford the shipping from the UK to Ireland. I see tremendous tools being sold for very little - comparitively speaking - at GB auctions...

+1 for having a seperate bench or area, I got oily rusty slurry from a plane restoration on my bench, and it stained a length of wood I had painstakingly dovetailed... :(

I cannot tell from the pictures, but the #4 size plane looks suspiciously like a 4 1/2, and if so is probably worth more than the whole bundle!

Regardless, a gloatworthy acquisition

Wow, thanks Eric.
I'll take a closer look and post a picture, (as I know nothing about planes, never used one since school 100 years ago)!

Thought it was time to learn.
