« Part 126: Antique Hand Planes Part 127 of Extremely Average series Part 128: Happy Mother's Day »

Hello LJ,

In today’s blog post there is a fish mentioned and a Stanley 45. I have a question about the Stanley 45. It is multiple choice, and won’t count towards your mid-term grade.

fishing with rod and reel is an art to master
and to restore a plane to be a good user can be a chalange but is artistic in it self
so they cuold very well have met in West Des Moines at the gallry looking at Picaso

for the cheisel you shuold have snaped it , you cuold use a drill (the poor mans lathe)
or use drawknife and spokeshave to make a new handle

give your mother a plesent day she deserve it , after all she raised you lol

In all my travels I have not seen many of these !
I started with one, then two, when doing research I realized there were 20 “types” made. Now my goal was to have every”TYPE”. I am waiting for you to buy it. They do take some setting up. I use mine for beading, not much call for beading in my work so far, I will be ready when the day comes. I know you will enjoy playing with one of these.
My opinion is bias.
YES go buy it .

Sadly, the votes were 3 – 1 against buying it. So I saved my money, but someday I will buy one, I can assure you of that.

Wow, I never get here in time to affect (effect) your decision, but at least allow me to affirm your not making the purchase. You really need to stop going to antique shops for tools, or if you do, watch ebay for a while as it seems to be a good resource to track availability & prices. Have a great day. -SST
