Topic tags/keywords: planer blade chisel jointer

I found these blades in the shop about a year ago and never got around to posting any thing on them. They were buried in a heap of dust and dirt. I’m guessing they go to a hand planer, if so what kind. Any thoughts would be helpful.

They look more like shaper blades to me. I’m pretty certain they aren’t plane irons.

Looks like they go to a Stanley #45 or something similar.

They look awfully thick for plane irons. I don’t think I have ever seen any shaper blades like this. Anything I have would be a guess and a poor one at that

They are either for a #45 or #55. Would be easy to sell to people missing some. Not terribly expensive but most that have them keep them for their own. Looks like a nice selection.

Here is a picture of what the whole set would look like:

AHH HAA Yes do do look like there for a Stanley #45. I don’t anything about the 45 or even the 55 I’m going to do some history reading on these. Thanks guys.

They do go to a # 45 or 55, I just got a 45 from my father in law. I would like to have them , if you dont intend to get one . Have some smaller pieces of curly maple or quater sawn oak if you would be interested in a trade, cash is tight right now.

Yes they are for a 45. I have a number of them myself for my 45.

Yes, those little notches are for engaging the depth adjustment rod on Stanley 45s and 55s. I imagine they might also work on equivalent planes like perhaps a Sears or Record multiplanes as well. The flat cutters like these are the only ones I ever use, the beads and other profiles lie unused in my toolbox. Great find!!!!
