Try me first!
E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and see if I have what you need, desire or dream of (steady on!). Yes I do get Norris planes but I am more likely to have good user grade bench planes, carving tools, chisels, gouges at sensible prices. However I do not have the time to publish a list so just ask!
I can also get replacement blades made for Norris, Spiers, Mathieson and other infill planes.
