To all you plane co*****s
Looking with envy at some of your equipment, I extracted my planes out of the cupboard.
They are.
Stanley RB10F still in original box marked at £4.74 with spare RB109 & RB110 blades.

Stanley Bailey No4 with cast body was my farthers about 1950 ish.

Acorn No4 very similar looking to the stanley with made in sheffield cast on base. history unknown.

Are these common or should I wrap them in cotton wool. :oops: :?:

In a word, common.
Here's a pic of the RB10 for those not familier

The #4s, in particluar the Stanley is a decent user plane worthy of ressurection...
The Acorn, well, here's a link with a brief description from Derek about them:
Acorn Hand Planes
It would be tunable and make a good plane, just maybe not the best smoother.
