This is a old Vintage carpenter's Wood Planing Tool. It is Craftsman brand, made in the USA. I'm not sure of its age but it looks to be from the late 1940s to early 1960s judging by the design.You definitely couldn't buy one like this at the Sears store today.
** It is in the shape as when I acquired it - some rust, dirt which can be cleaned off or left on to add character. It has a wooden handle(s), front and rear. The rear is split but still held in place with the long screw going through it.The varnish on the handles is mostly worn off. The metal base has a hair line crack which barely shows on the left side, but it shouldn't affect function. It has an adjustment for the depth and angle of the blade.If wanted this tool could be cleaned up,painted, blade sharpened, and oiled to use in woodworking or left as it is for a decoration for shelves or conversation piece, craft idea. I am selling it AS-IS due to it not being new and in perfect shape. **

Returns & exchanges
If you are dissatisfied with an item you buy from me you can return it as long as it is in the same shape as received - but I must be notified first. The purchase price only will be refunded. The shipping will not be. My vintage books and magazines are described very acurately as to their shape and condition with their sales being As-Is, with no refund.
