Embrace the Eclectic (for now) is going to be a third Monday of each month themed post. This is Number 1.
Something to fall in love with - the original wooden box for a Stanley 55 Combination Universal Plane.
The box would have been more than enough - but inside - all the parts of the Combination Plane.
In their vintage glory.

Vintage Stanley55 Wooden Box Details
Nothing needs to be added or subtracted from the Stanley55 Plane except *blades. DH is in charge of that detail. Used for making rabbets**, joints and moldings.
I learned more about the Stanley55 from
*Then I learned (from another site) how much the blades would cost !!! Maybe this will be a wonderful box of the Stanley 55 Universal Plane to admire rather than use. I did see a picture of a complete set of blades and they were wonderful and extensive and not frequently found.

Thanks for visiting.
