for wooden planes

Wauuuuuuu wonderfullllllllll
Finally we get to see it.
That is a beautiful bunch you got there.
You will love them all.
Yes it’s a beautiful set of mortise chisels, love the play in the handles.
And the 113 is a elegant lady in high heals on the dancefloor, I agree.
Did I say the 42 is a wonderful plane.
Keep dancing Dennis, you deserve some joy.
Life is sweet when we remember to look, and you see it like sugar these days.
Congratulation.
The best of my thoughts,
Mads

Dennis my they serve you well with many years of sharpness. I am familiar with the Stanley 45 not the 50. Nor have I seen a Stanley 130. Truly gems and I know you are a proud plane owner. Thanks for teasing and sharing.

What a haul Dennis but if your wife sees all that you’re going to need more than a cat door knocker to appease her righteous wrath. ;^)))
