At the flea market the other day I picked up this Stanley no. 45. Overall it’s in good shape with no frozen screws. The only issues I see are a missing knob and spur and a cracked handle.  It only came with a 1/4in cutter but I’ll be looking for additional cutters and the knob and spur.
Looking at the different web sites on the 45 I believe this one is a 7B based on the flattened thumbscrews, cutter adj screw and the floral motifs? After I get is up and running, the first project with it will be to build a storage box for it. I’ll try and use as many different cutters on it as I can. This should be a fun tool.

When you get to the point you wanna start amassing cutters, let me know. I have a few extras I'll let go reasonable. The prices are ridiculous on the bay.
