Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #14: Stanley #45 Chest

06-08-2019 01:17 AM by Bill Berklich | 5 comments »

Like many LJ’ers I’ve felt the tug of vintage hand tools. I discovered and acquired a Stanley #45 almost complete for a very reasonable price and got it mostly cleaned and sharpened and it’s been laid out on a side bench. Finally found time to make a chest. I wanted to make a chest similar to the original ones with finger joints. So to get started I made a simple box joint jig. Then I thicknessed Red Oak stock to 1/2” for the sides/ends/top and I also th...

Stanley 45 Combo Plane Overhaul #1: A new pretty :-)

01-23-2019 08:58 PM by HokieKen | 10 comments »

Recently I decided it would be beneficial to have a rabbet plane in the shop. I don’t generally buy tools unless I know they’ll get used. I’ve had several times recently I’ve had to set up the router table or a dado stack in the table saw to cut a single rabbet and thought “there has to be a more efficient way”. So I had almost settled on buying a rabbet plane but then decided to poke my head into the Stanley #45 thread here on Lumberjocks and see if may...

Veritas Combination Plane Comparison #1: Introduction

09-11-2017 12:58 AM by Mosquito | 4 comments »

First off, I’d be remiss if I didn’t thank fellow LumberJock Dave Polaschek for inviting me to his shop making this direct comparison possible for us. I do not own the Veritas plane, so I wouldn’t have been able to compare them without his generosity letting me play with his new toy! Second, I’m going to throw out the disclaimer that this was by no means a 100% exhaustive test. We did not do things like study edge retention, sharpening, and haven’t done any prolonged use/testing of the V...

We’ve found good homes for most of dad’s favorite tools, but I’m wondering if any of you could help me to determine the value of his Stanley 45 plane. A picture is attached. I sure would appreciate any advice you could provide!
