molding plane help.

Alright so doing things by hand would require a decent molding plane or two.

I heard that a Stanley 45 would be good but I'm not able to find one. The ones I have seemed to find have all been wood bodies. Any help?

there on evilbay, the old toolguys have swap meets and auctions through out the year. I think they are called North west tool collectors, I sure you can fine out on line. Stanley 55s are good too.

When it comes to old tools time and patience are your friend. Check CL and ebay with regularity and you will hit scores here and there. If your in a hurry you'll pay 3x what ya could...

Welcome man, even though you've been here for a couple months. I couldn't find any intro's from you though. Better late than never, right?! Pictures of your wood working would be awesome, too!

I was afraid of that. It would be nice if someone were to make them commercially!

If you are in a hurry and have fairly deep pockets; Clifton makes a Combination Plane similar to the Stanley 45. If I remember correctly it is approaching $1,600.00.

I have found three or four 45's at flea markets this summer ranging from $100 to $450 depending on age, condition and number of cutters. Hang in there and keep your eyes open, they are out there!
