Here he goes again

Yep. 75-90% of the planes I get ARE from FeeBay. Not sure where that ”$100” comes from….have NEVER paid more than $40 COUNTING shipping.

Blade up grades? WHY Unless it is heavyly rusted and pitted, there really is no need for an aftermarket blade. Other than a way of showing off?

Rehab a plane or two, that way one LEARNS all there is about the tool they use. Ready to go out of the box is the lazy way to go. Sooner or later, they will have to tune it back to sharp, then what… another high priced object, and sell the one they trashed on Ebay, of course.

BTW: I had a WR#4V3 for over a year’s worth of work…....Just not my style of plane.
