I found these a Stanley #45 box. I know its not part of the #45. I don’t know if these 2 go together. Anybody know what they are? The one with the handle has Stanley stamped on it in a couple of spots.

The other looks like some kind of saw sharpening guide, but I’m not sure.

The top one is a clapboard siding gauge. You use two of them to hold up the piece of siding at the right overlap when you nail it on.

The second one looks like an old siding cutter.

I don’t think the second one is a cutter. I think it’s a chainsaw sharpenng guide, missing the file.

Clapboard gauge and a saw sharpening guide.
Sharpening guide is missing a few parts.

Soon as I get to the shop, I’ll take pics of what I have. Check for pat. #s, helps to see the patent drawings.

2 Looks like a saw sharpening guide. Perhaps one that is used with a saw vice if not for chain saws.

If it wasn’t for the Stanley markings, I would have sworn the first item was a Viking whaling lure.

Thumbscrew on the right adjusts the rake, one on the left adjusts the fleam.

Sharpening guide shown on rusty saw plate to show all parts.

note the base mount that sits astride the saw teeth.
(didn’t take time to set up vise to hold saw plate)

There you go… I’m looking for one for my D3 Vice. Guessing it will be hard to find.

I knew I seen one before Smitty, but more importantly, how in the world did you fund that post?
