Now that is interesting! And the handle shape... hmm... I’m going to have to see if I can find anything on that little beauty!
Great Stanley pieces.
I am curious about your No 45 driver, made in England.
I am going to be aquiring the same screwdriver, No45, made in USA with a red ring not like your yellow.
I thought it pretty cool we have the same but not quite stanley screwdriver
I could see that adjustment might be a little sketchy and tools that are designed to do two things usually are not that good at accomplishing one. I will find out.It's hard to keep those adjusted well. And I found the round blade just wasn't that useful. Maybe if I was making chairs. Maybe it will work for bows.
When I saw the ferule detail on this big old rusty screwdriver in amongst a pile of old tools today I knew it was a Stanley (see post 143 above), should clean up nice.
And a modernish made in England plane that needs a clean & tune as well.
That Stanley ferule...English or U.S.? Cool to find those!!
I like that plane...kinda like a no 3 size/style maybe.
So can we assume US made ones have red washers & English made ones yellow?
