    Hand plane giveaway...

    I'm giving away a matching pair of Sargent planes. They are type 5, made between 1942 and 1950. They make excellent users. Totes and knobs are original and not split or cracked. No chips or cracks in the bodies, mouths are tight with no evidence of filing that I can see.

    They are a 414 and a 408.... equivalent to the Stanley #'s 3 and 5. They are in good shape but don't expect a Lie-Nielsen. I will clean, sharpen and tune them.... They'll be ready to go when you receive them.

    There are some rules however.

    1. Non-plane owners only please. If you already own a bench plane or two please refrain from entering. If it's only a block plane you're ok to enter.

    2. You have to use them.... And post pictures.

    3. If you win you must make a $40.00 donation to NCWW.

    I'll ship them to your door.

    Please respond to this post if you want to enter. In a few days I'll draw a number to decide the winner.

    Wow. Forty bucks for two planes. Someone is going to be happy. Nice.
    I know you believe you understand what you think I said, but I am not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant.

    Wow, thanks Chris!

    I'll jump in and enter my name. I have ZERO planes, nothing, nada. And would gladly make the donation. I may have to find a class or mentor on using them before I can post photos, but would gladly do so once I learn how to use them properly!

    Those look great - thank you for your generous offer. I already have a few #5s, so I am disqualified for your drawing, but thanks again!

    Re: Hand plane giveaway...

    I'll put my name in. I do have one plane: A Stanley No 10 Carriage Maker's Rabbet Plane. I inherited it from my grandfather. They're used for making large tenons, and I've never really needed it for that purpose so it just sits in a box.

    I've never had a bench plane, and would love to get my hands on one. Had several times I wished I had a useful one! Would gladly pay the donation and post pictures.

    Thanks!

    Re: Hand plane giveaway...

    I bought my first block plane yesterday so I would also like to enter, if possible.

    I have some rough sawn boards which could do with some cleaning up before I attempt to transform them into a bird table.

    Re: Hand plane giveaway...

    Hey Chris, super generous gifts you're sharing. And to no end you're prepping them for the next worker!

    I'll hop in as well, I have no experience whatsoever with planes. Been wanting to dive in but have been debating whether or not to invest in a planer or the hand tools.

    Re: Hand plane giveaway...

    That's a wonderfully generous offer, please count me in. I've been keeping an eye out for planes at yard and estate sales but no luck. This offer and so many others from tools to teaching make this a wonderful community to be lucky enough to be part of.

    Chris thanks for the opportunity, and I hope you can share your knowledge about keeping them up properly too.
