Thanks for the great responses, guys!

Hokie, I’d expect no less from you, a family shot featuring Millers Falls planes. Is your 65 1/2 a M-F as well?

SMP: Yeah, that’s one gorgeous #29. It’s so great to see them with no checking or splits on the sole, good clean intact tote and knob, and a good black finish.

I gotta make a confession. In the original post, the photo shows planes I built beds for, and they are around 34” to 36” long, yup way exaggerated beyond the stock length. To add to the visual, I placed a miniature (4 oz.) Coke can, and a 2 oz. Dixie cup beside it as a prop.

Have you checked your calendar?

I had to re-organize my plane group, the biggies were all sorta jumbled together and quite dusty. So, once assembled for a group shot or two, they went back to their lair, sorted by size. Thank heavens for compressed air! These planes mostly will be refurbished and returned to full duty, though probably in other peoples’ shops.

This also explains my recent venture in fabricating new totes, and re-constituted totes by creating the original ‘horns’ that so frequently get snapped off.

I’ve been sequestered too long, but I continue to be well. Hope everyone prevails through these times of contagion, we’ll all be stronger once it’s over.
