Sexy little bastard!
I am a fan of the 43, so I can imagine this will become a favorite.
Congratulations.
Best thoughts,

Looks like a group buy is happening. If you’re on Facebook and interested.

Hi Wayne
I been looking for both a plough plane and a kerfing plane.
Saw this Luban 43 on a UK website but they cannot sell to the USA – some distribution restrictions with woodcraft – but woodcraft not marketing it.
Looks like I am a little late for a group buy.
Is there another way to buy one?
Thanks
