Millers Patent Planes & Stanley Plow & Combination Planes

Stanley tried a few different designs of metal bodied combination & plow planes before settling down and going with the #45 / 55 series of planes they are so well known for.  This series of planes would also include the skew cut #46 & 47 models as well as the light duty #50.  Stanley also offered the Millers Patent line of woodworking planes including the #41- #44 which were introduced in 1870, and phased out in the 1890's. They also made and offered the 141 and 143 plow planes for a longer period of time.   To learn all the history about the different models and types of # 45 & 55 planes one would ever need to know I recommend the great guide written and published by Dave Heckle past president of MWTCA.  The Millers Patent line of Stanley planes is discussed in length in Roger Smiths works on the subject or in John Walters out of print price guides.

Stanley # 45 Plow / Dado PlaneStanley # 45 Plow / Dado Plane   This is a nice example.  It is just the body, no cutters.  The slitter and cam are present.  Just long rods. No rust, pitting, or other damage.  The body and fences are marked 45 and Stanley only appears on the cam.  I believe that means it was sold by either Sears or Wards and the cam added.  A nice example that will be a great user!!

Note, I can put together a near complete set of cobbled up good cutters for this for under $100.00 when purchased.

Stanley # 55 Combination Plane in Original BoxStanley # 55 Combination Plane in Original Box   This is a later model Stanley # 55 Combination Plane.  The plane itself, and the cutters are near mint and virtually unused.  I believe it dates from just before WWII from the logo on the skate and other features.  They made this unusual plane up to 1963 but if its features follow the 45 type study it would date from some period before that and closer to WWII.

This plane looks to have never been used very lightly if at all.  There is virtually no wear or tear from use.  The rosewood fences show little signs of ever having run against anything. Most all of the cutters look to be original grind and have original cosmoline or grease on them.  The box shows wear from sitting for so long. The corners of the outer box have ripped  Also one end of the cutter box is torn.  It is complete with its tower, cam, extra spurs, long and short rods, instructions.  You just do not find them this nice anymore.  Opportunity!!
