Hey Steve, that was a very nice thing your father did by giving you the plane. Be careful in cleaning the plane, it is nickle-plated and the wood on it is rosewood. The 45 was the first old plane I got when I started out seeking hand planes. It was laying in a puddle of water in a basement and the guy selling it was having a beer or 3 or 4 and it was only 8 am. I kicked it when walking out, as I looked down and saw it he said, “you can have that four a couple bucks”. After paying him for it I saw over on the shelf a box with the picture of this tool on it. I asked him if the box went with it, he said, yes it has some cutters, you can have that for a dollar. So, like it has been said, the slippery slope began, lol. Hope you enjoy your GGF 45, have fun, make some dust.
