Okay, the weekend didn’t start out all that good for me. Someone decided they needed my CD collection more than I and rather than being diplomatic about it, they broke a rear window on my car. But I’m only venting about that.

Today was a much better situation. I decided to cruise around to the last remaining garage sales for the season in my area and I happened upon an antique store that I didn’t know existed. There, my luck for the weekend completely changed.

I found the following:
- 2 60in Bar Clamps (not sure of brand but they were stamped CTCO 256) – $8.00 each
- 1 small block plane (I think a craftsman) $5.00
- 1 18in wood plane $12.50
- 1 #45 Stanely combination plane with a complete blade set in an old wood box/case $40.00

I feel better about my weekend now. I just can’t wait to get them tuned and cutting!

Very nice. Outstanding price on the 45. You will have to post some photos.

I’m definitely going to post some photos as soon as I can. As for info, the big thing I’ll need is info on restoration and tuning. I”m new tot he 45 and fairly new to the game on planes in general. I’ve been able to tune a couple already but any advice on rust removal and basic restoration would be appreciated.

I’ve done some restoration of bench and block planes. Not played much with restoring plated planes. I’m sure Alf would have some advise.

Gosh, I felt pretty good about my finds today. But a No. 45 with blades for $40? Excellent!

So, after a bit of searching, I have found the clamps are Cincinnati Tool Company clamps. At least that is my assumption based off of the CTCO stamped on them.

Anybody know much about how to determine an age on them? I know that they have to be at least as old as 1955 seeing as this is when CTCO went out of business.
