router planes

Recommended Posts

With the price of old router planes being so high I would look into a Veritas or Lie-Nielsen. Things have changed over the years, vintage smoothing planes and jack planes are still dirt cheap. More specialist tools like routers were never made in the same volume.

I had looked on Ebay for over a year, thinking I would get one for around $65.00 with shipping. Boy was I wrong! Most of the complete router planes sold for over $100.00 and that was plus shipping most of the time. I ended giving up and bought a Veritas from Lee Valley. I think the prices on Ebay went through the roof... since Paul Sellers has shown how useful they are in his videos. The only reasonable prices I have seen have been in England, but would require extra $$$ to import to USA.

Ebay, under $100

I tend to disagree but I hope you can prove me wrong.  Most of the vintage ones I would want seem to go regularly for over $100.

Not gonna try to prove you wrong. If prices exceed $100, then they do.  I haven't been on Ebay for quite awhile.  And have no need to check.
