« Part 3: the first batch of planes Part 4 of upcoming projects series Part 5: the 071s »

two stanley 45s i already posted about on the 45 blog so ill just recycle what i said to make it easier on me.

The first one I got from England for 160 Canadian so 120 us. Its As far as i can tell its a complete type 7 (1893-1899) with the s markings. It came with a set of cutters both long and short arms and very little rust. It also came with a custom carrying case. It is missing the knicker though.

The second one i have fallen in love with and will use forever. I got it off kijij, the first time i ever looked on kijij i found and it had only been posted 4 hours earlier. As soon as i saw it i contacted the seller who was in Winnipeg (i live in Montreal) and he agreed to mail it to me for a very good price, that day! I cant say enough nice things about Tim (the seller) who gave me the back story of the plane. Its a complete (except for one thumb screw which was replaced and fits perfectly which anyone dealing with stanley tools tools knows is hard to do) Sweetheart era made in the US. It has the long arms, short arms, cam rest two sets of cutters, a set of 10 h/r hollows and rounds and the original 1924 instructions. It also has the best custom made case i have ever seen. The case has custom slots for the cutter boxes and the hollows and rounds as well as a resting holder that allows for the 45 to be fully set up with long arms ready to go. Its also in amazing condition. Its clear the original owner used this plane a lot and took great care of it im honestly honoured to have it and cant wait to get it working again.

three sets of cutters for a 55, boxes three four and one. I checked and they work with with my 45 and they have they still have the factory grind.

-- it never ends well if you start by unscrewing the split nuts
