I’ve seen the collectors, restorers, people that say they are both and the ones that deny they are either. I understand the position of the restorer/collector, but for the most part I’m in the Alin Dobra school. The new planes from Veritas and LN are just so good, have innovations that make life so much easier, are ready to use right out of the box and are just great to own…I’m not sure what people think their time is worth, but if I just spent an hour fiddling around with a flea market Stanley, I’ve just more than paid for a new plane from LN or Veritas. It’s not worth it to me…I’m neither a collector, nor a restorer…I’m an owner/user. However, that’s just me.
