    Jim,
    Does the screw have an exact name? I've seen "locking screw for micro adjusting fence" which does not appear to be what I need. Given so many of these are missing I'm doubtful I'll ever...

    I see it now, right there where the threaded hole is missing a screw! Thanks Steven! I googled "Stanley No 45 fence locking screw" and this is NOT what it found. Still searching for a replacement. ...

    Thanks Jim. I know it'll last the rest of my lifetime. Here's a pic of the saw tip. Just about an inch remaining. Any idea as to the breadth of that tip when this saw was new?

    Jim,
    Can you tell that by looking at the depth (or lack thereof) between the teeth? Or maybe it's by looking at the width of the saw at the tip? Suspect that actually wouldn't be the width but...

    Thanks to everyone for offering your opinion. Nice saws Steven!

    Based on Joe's comments are there ways to tell from looking at the steel to help judge the age?

    Pete, Jim,
    That will teach me to "think" that John Walters book wouldn't have that level of detail and thus not check it first! Yes, the adjustment wheel is steel. I hit it with some steel wool...
  14. What the heck is the story on this Stanley #3 smoothing plane?

    Picked this up at some point earlier this year, I cleaned it up and based on the criteria on hyperkitten I thought it was a type 16 even though I don't believe the knob or tote are rosewood (I could...

    Found the info Brian referenced above about dating the medallion. Definitely, a 1955-1990 saw. Anyone know what kind of wood the handle is likely made of?

    Brian,
    That just happens to be the link I found with a google search. At least I know this is a decent saw and likely worth the $3 I spent on it. It didn't help me date this particular saw...

    Lowell,
    I too have a set of those. Didn't show them since they aren't really for sharpening plane irons and chisels which is where I'm focused on learning and developing some skills.
