My #45 cutters came in two boxes, and I’ve got pictures of them, but the graphics aren’t 100% in tact.

If no one else does, I will try to get dimensions tonight after I get home from work.

That would be great Chris, I appreciate it.

Does anyone have the graphics that are in better shape that they wouldn’t mind scanning/photographing?

I can send you both of my boxes to use as samples just as long as I get them back in the shape they are in.

@Arlin and cabmaker, do your boxes have the decals intact, or at least mostly intact?

Anyone have any idea the font used on the labels? This is a long shot, but I figure someone out there might have typeface experience.

See the below image for reference (sourced from an ebay sale).

I just acquired a 45 without the cutters. Since I will be buying them as one off’s from feebay I was having thoughts along the same line. Build a reproduction box for the cutters and another to hold the plane.

Guys, I have a graphics guy here who says if he can get a square framed shot,
rather than angled, the closer the better and hi rez, he can rebuild the image in a half hour or so
and we can all have labels to print off.
Might as well try the other ones as well as post #8 and see what he can do..that one we’ve figured the missing part with #18 is 3/4”
Anyway as square on to the label as possible and as clear a shot as possible

here’s hoping

@racerglen – That was my intention, which is why Gshepherd is sending me scans of his boxes. I will be rebuilding them in Photoshop for print-quality graphics. I intend to trace and replicate the graphics, not just reprint the old label and call it good.

@Gshepherd – Can’t wait to see them!

The 45’s to you shortly but 55’s later this afternoon they are still at the shop…. Maybe some more 45’s have to check storage. Here is a teaser pic of the 55’s I will get scanned jpeg for you today….

Those 55’s are prettyyyyy… I’m at work so I won’t be able to do anything until tonight (maybe not until tomorrow night depending on how busy I am tonight), so no worries about getting them to me.

Just recently I started thinking about and/or designing a new box for my #45. It didn’t come with original box, and I’d like to be able to keep everything in one spot, and since I travel with mine sometimes, I’d like to make it easily and safely portable, If we, as a group, could get some reproduction labels, that would make it all the better…

That’s my thought exactly, Mosquito. Once I get the labels redone, I’ll post them in a blog entry with links for download.

I think that seller just reprinted a picture/scan of an old label. Good source for dimensions though.

Reading the description, I’m pretty sure you’re right, but it’s at least a box with dimensions. He’s got a few others listed for other combination plane cutters as well.

Ok, I’ve finished one of the box labels. It is Cutter Box No.2 (plow, dado, and filletster cutters), and has the Sweetheart logo. You can download the high-res, printable version here.

I made the background a few colors. I used black, grey, and tried to match the original green (not sure if I succeeded or not).

The picture is formatted to print off as in 8×10 picture, and will do so easily through the Windows Picture and Fax Viewer (or some Mac equivalent that I don’t know of).

More are forthcoming.

Nice work! Any chance you’re working on the older ones? (i.e. the ones I have ;-) )
I was thinking about re-creating them (partially tracing a picture of mine in photoshop) and then having it laser etched into some wood to remake cutter boxes.

If you have pictures I can go off, I can certainly try. Ideally, color scans at a resolution 300ppi or higher.
