Mike I buy #8 size planes when I can get them for a decent price. I don t go for the type collection just the different brands. So I guess i m onboard with the crazy part myself. The original type study was based off a #4. Have you found any difference in the typing with the #7 s?

Yes, especially the placement of markings. The No7s have room behind the tote. I have one bed that is missing “Made in USA” even though it has a ‘10 patent and knob ring boss (type 13 1/2?). Totes are also on a raised platform, and the early type 2 has a square end near the frog, round towards the heel; the wood is round both ends. Pretty much everything else seems to follow Walter’s study.
