I want to thank all for their generous comments, it makes it even more fun, except for the guy that was picking up each plane and examining it pointing out the flaws,then setting it back down and picking up another one doing the same etc.

Herb; has he figured out to remove 'it' from the place you forcefully 'installed' it?

OOOOOWEE..... it did cross my mind, Dan,
He is our know-it-all guy who never brings a show and tell, has no tools, has no computer, knows everything about both, has done it all, never shuts up during the meetings, cross examines the speaker, I am sure you have met this type.

Herb your planes are beautiful and your gesture of gifting the planes is beyond words. What an incredible act.

Herb; can't the group banish him? Doesn't sound like he's adding anything of value to the association.
Wouldn't be surprised if he's driving members away.

I'm assuming you're not supplying the iron. What width iron do they use?

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

They would be useless,Tom, without the blade. Yes, They have the blade. The blades are mostly 1 5/8" wide some 1 3/8" Stanley block plane blades. I buy them from Highland hardware and off ebay. They cost around $12.-$14. including shipping.
They are about 1/3 too long so I cut them to size with my handy HF cutoff tool and an abrasive wheel. Then smooth the cut on the grinder and sharpen them on a lapidary wheel to a mirror finish.
