This plane is in very nice shape. I have not cleaned it in any way, will leave that to the new owner. This does have the instruction book.
I believe it's all there. I do not know much about the 45 or 55 planes, even looking at the book I didn't figure it out. Like I said I do believe all parts are here, A friend says it may be missing one of those long rods. I don't see any breaks or repairs to the metal. The wood guides are good also.I did see a patent date on the one part of 12-11-17, that's over 100 years ago. It's in excellent Pre-Owned Condition, It's in fair shape for probably 75 years old or more. Has not been Cleaned or Polished. So take a look at the pictures. Pics are of actual item you will receive. Other destinations will cost more. Check my other auctions for more vintage items.
