I posted a trivia question @ http://lumberjocks.com/topics/59384

Which type of planer is found in more places, used by more people and used by all ages and skill levels?

I guess the Chemo Therapy has effected my brain. I keep getting these weird thoughts related to woodworking.
Many people, all over the world, are doing woodworking and don’t even know it.

Awesome, so every school kid who has used a pencil sharpener can claim to be a woodworker ;-)

I actually have one of the hand crank ones mounted to the library cabinet in my shop. I never thought of it so much as a shop tool though. It was more a deal of LOML didn’t like the smell of Cedar shavings in the home office…

Is there a Japanese pencil plane that you spin the other way?

No Ed, but there is an Australian version that goes backwards.

I hope when my daughter gets to grade school, she’s bragging to her friends about her finely tuned pencil sharpener that gives gossamer shavings measured down to the micron. I guess I’ll just keep dreamin.

Hey hoosier0311, you can get two for the price of one at Harbor Freight! Or you can order off Sears.com and they will send you panty hose in the wrong size and probably with runners.
