Re: When you list an infill plane..

Jim, it is relative. A Holtey for one is a LN for another. But that is with regard to those who use their tools to make things. There is another group who like collecting tools for display, and the tools here could be anything, from BCTW to a full set of random (low value) Stanley Bailey planes.

I often get comments (about the tools I build) that run along the lines, "I would be scared to use that if it was mine". I say, why build ugly? - build them gorgeous and enjoy using them.

Regards from Perth
