So...you know you are hooked when...

1. You've gone from almost no hand tools to knowing the differences between Type 8 and Type 9 Stanley hand planes in less than a year.
2. You find yourself making excuses like: Well the number 5 I have now doesn't have a corrugated bottom.
3. You make a dedicated plane shelf in your shop.
4. You find yourself spending a spare 15 minutes honing anything sharp to ensure it's ready for the next use.
5. You find yourself using a plane on things that probably don't need it…like window sills.
6. You find yourself trying to teach your parents which chisels can be used with hammers and which ones can't….

7) You use a hand tool for a job that a power tool that you already own could do faster and with more precision.

Uh oh! Sounds like somebody is out of control with hand tools. I think power tool junkies have a similar problem.

9) You are considering posting your power tools on Craig's List. :)

I'm really considering what I really need and don't use anymore.

HA! Caught me! You saw that eh? See it's perfectly reasonable. One is set up with a back bevel ground into the blade…and the other is not. COMPLETELY necessary.

11) you constantly search eBay for a #1 that might sneak through without anyone else noticing even though they're probably unusable and impractical, just so you can complete the set.

#12 you spend 2 hours explaining in detail to your wife that you actually need one more #4 for spare parts for the other 3 #4's that work perfectly.

Okay...so my #7 is on the way...

I just got word that my #7 I bought is being mailed…is it wrong to be this excited? I gotta go build more room into the hand plane storage shelf?

It's a wards-master…but it was only $20…so if I can tune it to a good user…I'm $ ahead…

No it's not wrong. When I get that email with a tracking number for a new tool I ordered, I get giddy.

The other day I ordered a new marking gauge and it was missing a couple set screws for the mortise blades. I got the email with the tracking number for the set screws and got excited :).

That's pretty good, I check the tracking numbers also, it's picked up(good) it's in NJ, it left NJ, it's on the west coast, It has left the west coast,(that's 500 mph and 2500 miles,hmmm) I try and calculate the time the plane should pass overhead and go outside with the binoculars, just on the chance I see the plane by, just to make shur all the doors are closed and all, it's on Oahu and finally it makes to the big island and I call UPS and offer to meet the driver somewhere, because I know I could shave one, maybe two hours off the delivery.
So as far as being excited, I'm afraid you are alittle too calm.

Ahh, gotta love the new tool expectations! My father warned me about that. He told me that once I got into woodworking I would always want a new/better/unique tool to some job better/faster/safer/more efficiently. Boy was he right! Ain't it grand!

God Bless,

Yep, that's part of the fun.
