a very. very generous package came for me today… from fellow LJ Mafe!! i was shocked when i saw the size of the box… i actually thought there might have been a giraffe inside!!
Mads, I am truly humbled by this gesture. I am deeply grateful! these are valuable additions to my tools!! they will no doubt be used extensively in the near and far future :D now i can throw my pen knife out!! (well… maybe not)
I have to say that I do have two favourites in the lot. in the first picture on the very right hand side you can see a rebate (rabbet) plane, which i’ve been dreaming about and dying to get my hands on for the past month or so!! the second is of course the table saw a la Mafe!! there is no doubt you are an architect mads!! there are so many fine details and nothing was wasted.. even the cut out on the side of the box to fit the saw was made into a push-block.. fantastic! :D
i am a little uncertain of what to call the plane in the second picture.. i want to say it’s a mortise plane? i’m not even sure i’ve put it together right… lol.
thank you so much again Mads, this was a positively wonderful surprise, and it will not be forgotten! I am an extremely happy camper as the expression goes, and i cant help but hold, touch and study the new tools i have at hand!!!!
