Picked up these planes from CL, I really have been wanting a45 and a router plane and thought I would never get the chance to get one, not perfect by any means but I think they are usable

Looks like a score Tom, the 45 seems to be missing at least one rod, and the ‘78, but they can be found or made ! What’s the upper left plane ?

I have both sets of rods and I think a nearly full set of cutters for the 45 and the roof and fence good the 78 the plane upper left is a Stanley Bailey, I don’t think it’s very old though it has a plastic adjuster wheel

These should be a lot of fun to have and hopefully use.

Depends, on what else it also has. They used plastic wheels during WW2, which are still really good planes. It could be a type 17 or some later version. Look here for a good type study with pictures:

By the way, Nice haul, they should keep you busy for a good time.
