Herb, I worked for a guy whose favourite tool was the hammer. He collected them and occasionally lined them up to admire them. Your planes would make a much more admirable line-up!

I'll tell ya what... ****don't hold your breath on this, just sayin****

I have a huge old anvil that I'm trying to work a deal on with a black smithing group. The deal I'm tryng to make is trade the anvil for 400 and hands on training at their site to make several Damascus steel blanks. A couple of knife blanks and several plane iron blanks. If the deal comes thru, I'll gladly send ya an iron for the small plane...
Now like I said, don't hold your breath, but maybe keep a finger or two crossed
I can't pass up a deal like that. PM me when you are ready.

Thanks, but wishful thinking, I have a ways to go on that.

It has a small chip out of the edge of the sole. But it works good so I am keeping it for my use. See pic.
All these are 45 bed angle and bevel down,

Herb, these are not plains to be used. They should be behind locked glass doors. Absolutely beautiful.

There is a story with every plane you make. Every plane has character.
