AMEN to THAT!

;o)

I sometimes feel sad when I see a sale for a nice plane on eBay that will go and be placed on some shelf of a collector where it will never be used, nor gain any new experiences and stories… which is what it was meant to be for.

BTW The Large plumb bob in the upper right corner of the picture looks more like an artillery shell; that thing’s huge!

Chris, the picture is from The Handplane Book, by Garret Hack. To me is a bit sad to see so many nice tools behind glass doors, when they should be in the hands of Lumberjocks and still making shavings.

That’s an amazing rack of old planes and tools. No doubt there are a ton of largely unknown stories about each one’s past, but I’ll bet there’s even a story of how each was acquired!
