You are offerding on one main frame for a Stanley Number 45 wood plane as pictured.
It is marked "STANLEY RULE & LEVEL CO NEW BRITAIN CONN USA" on the skate with STANLEY in script lettering, and also marked "No 45" on the frame. And owner "G" scratched his initial into the left side of the handle as shown.
Included or not included with it are:
--- the adjustable depth stop with its special nut. It doesn't have a locking screw.
--- the little 3-winged nicker and screw are missing.
--- the hardware to secure the irons is present, and the wingnut is intact and not split out under the clip as is common.
--- the hardware to adjust the irons up and down is present.
--- and the two screws that would secure the rods are present (no rods included).
Condition of everything is good but rusty in places. The skate is reasonably clean except for the rust along the lower edge of the right side. Everything turns and operates properly, although the blade adjuster would benefit from a little cleaning and lubrication. The depth stop has quite a bit of rust as can be seen.
Except as noted, there are no cracks or chips or chunks missing from any of the castings, and everything operates properly.
SHIPPING: 3 pounds when boxed, insurance is included.No International shipping.
I sell what I enjoy, and I collect antique woodworking tools andI enjoy photography!The queue is overflowing with tools right now, as they seem to be finding me faster than I can list them. So please keep watching my postings as I have LOTS more to list!
Searching my listings: I have lots to see! Some of you will undoubtedly enjoy browsing through everything, but if you want to hone in on something specific, I suggest you click on the "Visit Store" link in Seller Information section in the upper right of this listing. That will lead you to my extensive system of categories.

Then go to your saved sellers in My , find me - jlhf1 - and click on the 3 dots next to my name. That gives you 4 options - view profile, contact seller, subscribe to newsletter, and add note to self.
ETHICS IN DESCRIPTIONS: I also buy for my collecting on , and I have been burned too many times by misleading (duh did I forget to mention .......) descriptions, and sales with pictures only of the left side because the right side was trashed. Life is much simpler for me if I disclose what I know or see about an item before you offer, and especially before you receive it in the mail. I come from the handshake school of doing business, and hopefully you are like me and understand what that means. What goes around, comes around.
RETURN POLICY: I believe that if you give honest descriptions, and include enough pictures, you shouldn't need a return policy. However, that doesn't mean that I won't make an occasional mistake. Please offer with the assurance that if I have made an error in my listing, I WILL take care of you. And if you have made an error, and bought the wrong size, for example, I will still take care of you (but I’ll let you pay the return shipping!).
USPS POSTAGE RATE INCREASES: I use the Post Office for everything, and yes, the shipping charges just keep going up and up. The Post Office now has several prices increases during each year, raising a few things but not everything at each increase. And they now raise their rates during the Holidays, which for this past season was October 2 to January 22. Their big increases are in January, timed to start at the end of the Holiday rates, and this year is no exception. And it's not just the postage rates, the insurance charges and the delivery signature charges have also gone up. There is now a surcharge for Priority Mail packages over 20" long, and another for Priority Mail packages over 30" long, because those longer packages won't fit in their automatic machines. And the Post Office has discontinued the Regional Flat Rate boxes, which were often less expensive for certain sizes and weights.I try to pick the best shipping option for each listing, based both on what is the least expensive and on what I think is needed to protect the item. If the value is $250 or over, requires your signature at delivery for the buyer and seller protections to be in effect.
SALES TAX: Interstate sales tax is now the reality on all the major selling websites including . If I ship to a state where is required to collect sales tax, will charge you the sales tax for your location.There is lots of information available from that explains it in much more detail. The sales tax is completely out of my hands -- I don't have anything to do with deciding whether to charge tax, I don't have anything to do with deciding the tax rate, and I never see any of the funds that are collected, they go directly to .
SELLING OUTSIDE OF : Why would I risk my lengthy good standing with to save you a couple of dollars? Especially when you ask on an email that is sent through the email system? Please don't ask, the answer is no.
INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: I no longer ship Internationally other than Canada. If you are in Canada, ask for what the shipping would cost, but be prepared for it to be $$$$$.
sales: I won’t end an sale listing early to sell it to you directly. As a buyer, I really dislike going back at the end of an sale to offer, only to discover that the seller had ended the sale early. So I won’t do that for you, or to you.
PACKAGING: Please check my response -- I package well. I figure if you take the time to purchase from me, then I can take the time to package it well, and not just throw it into a cereal box with a scrap of newspaper.
I hope someday I will meet some of you as we trudge the happy road of tool collecting!
