Stanley 45 Plane

A person I know is offering me a "new in the box" Stanley 45 plane. He says the box is dodgy, but the plane has never been used. I don't know if all the parts are still there, or what kind of condition it is in.

I know this person from another forum I'm on, and have met him several times, and know him to be a good and honest person.

What would be a fair price for the plane?

Tact is for people not witty enough to be sarcastic.

Personally, I'd pay up to $120 for a good condition 45 with the minimum 13 piece cutter set.
I received mine as a part of a package deal with a few other planes and chisels for around $300.
The plane is in decent condition with some of the nickel flaking off, but completely usable. It came with the 13 piece cutter set, and 2 extra scoring blades.
I guess it just depends on which type you get as well... Mine does not include the fine depth adjustment, so setting it up is a bit finicky.

You can find 45s for sale on Ebay all the time with boxes and cutters around $200. If a person wants a 45, you can buy just the plane for under $75 and pick up cutters as you find them, often less than $50 for a set. There are many different 45s, which years can make a price difference. Earlier ones had wood boxes.

I have the plane in my hands. It has 22 cutters, and all the parts are there. (I downloaded the owners manual) There is a little pitting, and the plane appears to have never been tuned. The box is paper wrapped cardboard, as was the style at time of manufacture. There was no paperwork included in the box.

When I last met him, I asked him how much he wanted for the plane, and he said "name a price". I looked on ebay, and prices ranged from $70 to $465. Would $130 be a decent price for this plane?

I believe that would be a low price---Great if he doesn't get insulted---

Let's see what the antique tool folks have to say.
