Thanks , one reason I was looking for a Stanley , I have made custom profile cutters for them .I found a Anant with all of the cutters ,it looks just like the 45 , , I have read a lot of bad about them in the past couple days and don't know any one who has one . if it doesnt work out I will look into the veritas thanks again
I think the reason you can't find anyone who has one is because they are complete junk. At leas that is what I have found from the reviews I have read. Nobody says anything good about them.
Check this link...http://www.supertool.com/forsale/march2019list.html
That is his March tool list. Everything Stanley and much more. He sends out a monthly listing of stuff he has for sale. The Stanley 45 is listed often. I don't know about his prices but I suspect they are not cheap but at the same time not over the top.
I am sure if you email him he will tell you what he has.
I just looked at the first listing on the list.
ST1 #45 combination plane; a very clean ca.1945 example in a
good original box; used a few times, everything that went
into the box when is left Stanley is present, save for the
screw driver; all you need to do with this one is hone a
cutter and start taunting wood with it: http://www.supertool.com/forsale/mar/t1.jpg
