Stanley No. 45 Combination Plane

I love this plane. Picked this up online not long ago and I have had the chance to test it out. Works really well and is very well taken care of for being over 100 years old. I think it dates to around 1895 if I'm not mistaken. The box that it came in is made of chestnut and is still in pretty good shape too.

The plane came with a couple of extra hollow/round attachments for the bottom along with the cutters. Haven't tried them out yet though.

Here are a couple of sites for more info on the tool.

Toolemera Press - for a manual of the 45 Combo plane.
