I bought a Stanley 45 combination plane recently that came with two cam rests:

They are essentially identical, except for the screws used to tighten the cam rest to a rod: one screw is like a set screw and the other has a cylindrical head.

I’d like to keep one cam rest to use and sell the other one. Is there any practical difference between the two? Do they come from different eras? Are they both authentic? Any information is appreciated. Thanks.

I’m only guessing, but maybe the set screw is a replacement. Mine has the slotted screw.

I have never seen one with a set screw and a few 45’s have passed though my hands.

Have your say...
