I recently bought a Stanley #45 combination plane, and several blades….however it’s only the chasis and blades…does anyone have the slide rail, and perhaps any parts for a #45 they would be interested in selling/trading?

Let me know what you have, and how much you want for them. eBay seems to have quite a few but I haven’t won any parts yet.

The #45 has a myriad of blades and parts. Generally, you are better off with specific wooden-bodied planes like a set of Hollows and Rounds, a rabbet plane like the #50 (which I have for sale) which can also be used as a plow plane. I have a full, complete #45, but I’ve never used it, as it is a howling pain in the drain to set up. I recommend several other planes to take its place. I am a MWTCA member and an avid collector of antique tools. I’d be happy to help with any questions about the tools themselves.

Thanks for that. I have about 30+ planes now, several transition planes, wooden bodies, coffins, smoothers, etc. and have been making a couple as well. I’ve bought most of them cheaply off eBay and restored/fixed them myself which I really enjoy.

I might be interested in the #50. do you have any pics?

Chardt: I wasn’t trying some sort of hard sell about the #50. I have one that’s a user out in the shop and another with a full set of blades (fairly hard to find) that I should sell. The plane is relatively unremarkable, but the blades are all there. I just started on here so I can’t send you a private message yet. Contact me at jmwhittler@hotmail.com if you are interested. No pressure. Take care.

Check out Rose Tools, Inc.. I just got back from visiting their physical store and they have more antique tools and tool parts than you can imagine.

I bought a box of antique tools a few years back, and I think there may be an extra 45 body
in it. Its been in the garage for a few years, I’ll check and see if I still have it.

Much appreciated for all the comments I’ve received. I have the body, and about 8 blades..I was more looking for the guide rails, rods, etc. to add to it.

Look on ebay they have alot of 45 & 55 and parts also I saw a fence on there last night. I got my 45 off there had it about a week and love it. I am waiting on my 55 I bought last night should be here Sat. or Mon. I love wooden planes to but some guys don’t want to have to do the set up for 45 or 55. If the blades are sharp and you take the time to set it up right they are a blast from the past. If you need any help let me know glad to help I have used alot of 45&55.

Much appreciated Gar! I found some blades and a couple of fences on ebay for cheap that I’ve cleaned up and sharpened. I love it.
