Vintage Stanley combination planes have always intrigued me.

One of the problems encountered in a study of the company’s bench planes is that catalog illustrations could be as much as twenty years out of date.

Texts describing the tools were often astonishingly inaccurate and descriptive errors could remain uncorrected for a decade or more.

I set the blade for a very light cut to compensate for this, however this translates to many more strokes to arrive at the same point. 45 has an adjustable depth stop which works very well. 45 had an fence adjustable with a fence adjusting screw setup which makes it easier to tweak the fence.

I disassembled and cleaned this particular plane to become familiar with the different components.

Stanley 45, shown with short and long bars, part-way through a 3/8 in. Also notice the dual skates ahead of the cutter have spurs or nickers along their edges, used to score when cutting dadoes (cross-grain). The cutters in the middle of the box have been sharpened, backs lapped, and honed to 4000 grit. beading cutter used above has only the back lapped to not deform the profile of the cutter. I intend to use it to create joinery on some of my future projects.

Match cutter is at the right, used for creating tongue and grooves. Please visit Wood Skills for your woodworking plans, woodworking courses and tutorials.

I will add more information, such as Sargent history, catalogs etc. The background images for this website are taken from the cover of the 1911 Sargent Tool Book.

Over the last few years since I started posting information regarding vintage hand planes and tools, I've faced up to the fact that I really like these old rusty bits of metal, and can comfortably say I'm a vintage tool collector.

Molding, grooving and dado planes, including plow, dado, beading, etc., have historically been dedicated wooden planes with the profile and pre-set offset from the edge of the board built-in.
