Location: Hoylake .Well known for golf .
Website:

Now aged 79. What worries me is all the planes I have accumulated . The first was a No 4 from my Dad . A small block plane and a perfect No 7 Stanley for joining violin plates . Self taught and they play well too. I used to play in amateur orchestras . One soloist was John Williams on guitar .One Stanley 4 & 1/2 given to me by my daughter`s partner (from his grandfather). 2 wooden planes bought for about £3 on a market stall .(out of curiosity ). Two RB10 replaceable planes .The early model difficult and a nuisance . The later model works perfectly (now). I had it for 20 years before I flattened the sole. Before that it was a dead loss . One Stanley No 5 . Always produces dead straight surfaces . One rare Spear and Jackson in red No 4. That gave me a lot of trouble . The lever in the lever cap was out of shape. That inherited a Stanley cap as the straight keyhole always came loose . I tried a stay-set in it but abandoned that as the frog lever hole was too big . A very fussy plane but generally I can make it work very well .For all it`s quirks I just like it .
Lastly for now one Acorn 4 &1/2 which is pre Stanley and has a frog base that is all on one sloping angle . It`s just like a Bedrock without a depth adjuster . As a plane it works just as well as the Stanley. It has a tiny brass wheel adjuster .
In the next few days I will receive a No 5 Rapier plane (made in Gateshead ). More curiosity .I always liked the look of Rapier planes .
The chap across the road gave me a plastic box full of molding planes . Of course I had to get all of them working after releasing and the stuck wedges .

welcome to the club he has half the members here blocked i think ? if your on his block list that prevents you from commenting on anything he posts.the name fits him well (poop) a big pile of it.he has me blocked and ive never even been on one of his threads or ever talked to him.dont feel bad he’s not worth it.he was probably threatened by the fact you know more than he does-lol.

Thankyou pottz . I just found your post . (2 months late) I have been searching for my previous posts which tend to get lost . But when I log on the Poopiekat page always appears . But he likes Rapier planes so he must be alright .
