OK. You guys in the freight industry hit the back button. You don’t want to read this blog.
Now that those guys are gone… the cost of shipping the 144 inch straight edge clamp is $252.00! Making to total bill around $345.00. Can’t do that so, I made some calls.
I found this piece of aluminum straight stock for $62.00 locally. I picked it up this morning. It’s 3” wide, 1/4” thick and 12 feet long. I took a picture of it with my 4 foot ruler to give you some sense of scale.

I sharpened up the new/old planes, Stanley 7 and 8 this morning. Made some nice curls! I also had to tell my wife about the No. 6 I bought Friday. This is getting out of hand (planes)! Maybe this will be last one for a while. Let me nurse those blisters in a few days and we will be able to judge my hand plane collection.
Thanks for taking a look.
