One of the old boys down my road stopped me in the street today and said he'd like to give me his old stanley 45 if i could use it in the workshop . I was expecting some battered old rusty thing but he presented me with this :shock:

That's very generous of him, Jas. Pity you don't use hand tools! :lol:

Nice, not sure it would be much use today but still worth quite a bit of money.

I used my 78 the other day to just copy a rebate in some timber . Sometimes its quicker to use the hand tools than set up a machine

That was very nice of the chap to give you that plane Jason. I have the updated version which I used to put a bead as a break on rebated doors but has now sat for many years being idle. They are handy on the odd occasion you need them.
