I just wanted to show off this big old plane I got a while back. It can hog off 1/32 of material and not even flinch. The picture is a little hard to see but trust me . I was using it to take off about 3/4 of an inch of the top of a desk I am making. I know someone out there is saying why did you not just cut it off. Well I have no power in my shop and I am not the good with my cheap $20 saw I got from Lowes. The Plane which you can see on the top of the picture is 26” long and the blade is 2 1/2” wide. It’s a mammoth.Photobuckethand planes

I had troubles getting it linked but i think I got it now. But I can’t figure out how to make them smaller so you can click on the to see the entire picture.

Wow, that is a pretty big plane. I bet it’s quite a workout just to use it.

That is one huge plane.

(You can resize the photos in Photobucket if you want. If you make them 640×480, they will fit on this page.)
