Re: A new block plane question

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
I didn't understand what the 1st paragraph had to do with the question, or what it was all about. The last sentence answered it. There were planes in 1840 that could be employed one handed.

When the world went to metal I suppose the need for a one handed plane was better met with a block plane configuration.
