SO I just acquired a Stanley Builder's Kit, # H-297-5. OH JOY!
This is the metal case with H258 router and base, baseplate, router guide w/trammel point, plane attachment GA-H285, the Hinge templates, and the plane cutter w/arbor.
The plane cutter looks like it's been used once, MAYBE twice.

SO...it's missing a few items:
the cutter grinding wheel, the wrench ( can pull one from a tool kit), grinding arbor, hinge mortise cutter (which I can get most anywhere), and the optional carbide straight cutter T-H5166
Ideally I'd find the GA-H4286 Plane Cutter Grinding Attachment for all the missing goodies.

Any idea where I'd find these missing treasures?

HELP ME OBI-ROUTER, YOU'RE MY ONLY HOPE!

Welcome. Hope you find those items. Not so easy to find parts for any of the Stanley owned brands. I take it you got it free, or close to it?
$45, and intact except for those few small parts.
Even came with manuals for router, plane, edge guide and hinge mortise kit....had to flatten those out, and the router manual has a bit of ink transfer between pages.

Stanley evolved over the years from the Stanley-Carter days to the Stanley-Bosch era. The stock numbers for the same items often changed. Below is a 1979 catalog cut from the more recent Stanley Bosch years.

Thanks, I took down the relative part numbers for the planer cutters.
The 85-401 and 85-523 are now part of the search.

Is that the Stanley Builder's Kit that uses the 90 150 router motor?

A photo will be very helpful in determining what you might need. Not everyone keeps old Stanley portable power tool parts sorted as to stock numbers.
It's the Stanley H-258A, 7/8th HP motor.
I found the general info on it in the site that has old manuals...which reminds me, I need to copy this stuff out and send it to him along with a few bucks.
Photos...I'm kinda challenged with that, as I have to borrow She Who Must Be Obeyed's phone.
I shall attempt, but no promises.

I remember those kits. The router motor is similar to the 1HP 90 150 and probably interchangeable. It was made with some unusual but not unavailable sized bearings
I was thinking it might have been the earlier dome-topped router of the Stanley-Carter era.
