Was sent on a mission to buy items for Arena. (Daughter) I had to drive 2 hours one way. Original plan was to leave this morning, pickup check and directions from her place at 9am and be back by 1. NOT GOING TO HAPPEN ! So I talked her into getting money and directions LAST night. This morning I left at 6am and picked them up what he needed. * Why drive that far and not look !
WHOOPS….............did more than look. Added to my family of wooden planes. I really only wanted 2, BUT how can you just take 2 and leave the rest.
NOT me I am not splitting up the family !*
A few dollars later and they are mine. They travel well.
Never did tell anyone here the alterior motive, everyone is happy !

If I did not know better, I would think that you were addicted to collecting planes, but I now realize
that you just do not want all those lonely orphan planes existing without a proper home and family. Thank
you for sharing.

Spent the day sharpening and adjusting these planes. The one I wanted, paid 2x more than others (Not going to tell the other planes though, they all feel important) lol
They were all very sharp, just a little scary sharp was all that was needed. I really like the bullnose. It cuts much easier with 2 blades than the 45 with one blade ! Learn something everyday.
