Set or lot of 50 irons blades cutters for Stanley 55 wood plane with 4 boxes
February 4, 2020
On one lot of fifty (50) irons or blades or cutters for a Stanley Number 55 combination wood plane as pictured. The majority of the cutters have their number on them, and if they have their number on them, it is noted below. Bottom row left to right. 9 beading cutters 1/8″ to 1/2″, plus #28 (5/8″) and #29 (3/4″). 10 dado or plow cutters 1/8″ to 1/2″, plus 5/8″, 3/4″, and 7/8. 1 filletster cutter 1-1/4. Middle row left to right. 1 sash cutter no depth stop. 1 match cutter #5 no depth stop. 4 fluting cutters #32, #34, #36, and #38. 8 hollow and round cutters #43, #44, #45, #47, #53, #54, #55, and #57. Back row left to right. Cutters which are #62, #64, #73, #75, #82, #84, #86, #93, #102, #104, #106, #212, #222, and #232. And in the very back. 4 cutter boxes with their lids. Earlier 55’s came with 52 cutters, and later 55’s came with 55 cutters. This is an earlier set, with two cutters missing, which are #95 and the slitter. To get from the earlier set of 52 cutters to the later set of 55 cutters you would add in #18-1/2 (dado), #6 (match), #40 (chamfer), #41 (chamfer), and delete #29. Which is why you don’t see #29 as often as the other beading cutters. Cutter #64 doesn’t have its notch, but is about the same length as the others. Cutter #45 has a bit of one tip broken off. Other than those two issues, condition of the cutters is varied, but generally at least good. Some would rate very good, and some have quite a bit of rust. Only a couple are going to have any pitting beyond some faint pitting, with #28 having the most pitting. All of them would benefit from a cleaning. Condition of the cutter boxes is good, although the labels are pretty worn. (but see below if you are in Canada). I sell what I enjoy, and I collect antique woodworking tools and I 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 auctions as I have LOTS more to list! Or if there is something specific that you are looking for, please let me know so that I can get it listed for you to consider. Searching my listings: I have lots to see! That will lead you to my extensive system of categories. You might ask: How can I know when you start new listings? Descriptions, and auctions with pictures only of the left side because the right side was trashed. 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. However, that doesn’t mean that I won’t make an occasional mistake. The US Post Office has five sizes of their Flat Rate boxes, plus padded Flat Rate envelopes. Please don’t ask, the answer is no. So I wont do that for you, or to you. Every year the US Postal Service raises rates in mid to late January, and this year is no exception. These charges are the buyers responsibility. PACKAGING: Please check my feedback — I package well. I hope someday I will meet some of you as we trudge the happy road of tool collecting! If you have questions about anything I have listed, especially about how to pay for your new treasure, please ask.
