« Part 14: New Plane - Bedrock 604 1/2 Part 15 of Shop Tools series Part 16: New Plane Stanley 5 1/4c »

I picked up two boxes of cutters for a Stanley 45. I have a couple of planes that I had picked up but needed cutters. The guy had 4 planes. One looked pretty early so I decided to buy it as well. Question to the experts. Is this a Type 2?

Box with 21 cutters. I think this is a base set 1910 to 1920 based on number of items?

Sweetheart box with 12 cutters (all present)

If all parts are original, no, not a type 2. The flat spot on on the fence didn’t show up until type 3.

It is throwing me off a bit, though, as I didn’t think the wooden fence showed up until later (type 5, after nickle
plating). Does it look like it’s user added?

Either way it looks sweet. Sooner or later I’ll end up with an early #45. I’ve got an early #46 and I like that over the later #46

Thanks Mos. It might be user added. They may have drilled the holes and added the wooden fence. It is pretty grimy. I’m going to have to clean it up and play with it.

Very nice find on the complete boxed set of SW’s. Nice 45 too.

Looks really cool with the brass hardware.

That lead me to believe it was an early model and buy it. He had two older plated versions that were missing some plate for the same price.
