Ok, all I can say is my Madison Bouchville trip was fantastic. A #15 Sargent, a Sargent Type 1 307, a bunch of fixer uppers, a Stanley #1 and this. This plane is friggin awesome. I was going to sharpen it, slide it back in the box and sell it. I paid some where’s between $40 -$60 for it depending on what you consider the other 2 were worth that came in the package deal. A complete #78 and a fixer upper Stanley #4.

I found one other one like it for sale, its up for $225. Ulmia doesn’t make it any more. Its bed at 50 degrees and has an adjustable mouth.

Once I started using it I was amazed. Its one of the most comfortable planes I’ve ever used. And it works sooooo well.

Think I can sell the box and keep the plane?
