    Stanley 45

    Finally managed to get a functional combination plane. I have been looking for a set of cutters for a Stanley 50 I have, but this came along and I decided to go ahead and get it. It has all but a couple cutters. The rust is fairly minimal. It also didn't have the long arms, but I can live...

    Stanley Bedrock Plane Repair

    I have found an old Stanley #4 Bedrock pland in need of much TLC, but the only thing wrong with it is the lever that controls the angle of the blade is broken. Is it possible to replace this? Where or who can repair it if I can find a replacement? Thanks.

    Many people pick up a Stanley #45 plane and wonder how to store all of the pieces. During its manufacture, the #45 was shipped in various containers, from wood, to metal, and finally (I think) paper. None of these shipping containers do the plane justice. Most require that the plane be stripped...
