Thanks Dallas, I really like my #45, and was frustrated by the lack of good references online on how to use it (more than just words on the screen) so I figured, why don’t I just do something about it…

The forum topic idea was Poopiekat’s. I just had the blog going at first.

For dating a #45, I have found it to be more difficult than with bench planes. I like this type study by Stan Faullin, to get a general ball park for most of the types. After that, it gets a little more tricky, because it’s a lot of trade mark differences from there on out. The difficult thing with that, is that they don’t all seem to match those of the bench planes so it’s a little more difficult.

I have ordered a #45 specific book, so we’ll see what I can learn from that.


Edit, yup poopiekat, that’s the one by Stan Faullin that I’ve got listed. That one is probably my favorite of the two I’ve found so far.
