So if I put by £1 a week, you should have it in about 135 years. Hope that’s ok.

Joking aside, I think Ron Brese’s prices are justified, even reasonable. Personally, I’ve never liked the look of Wayne Anderson’s planes, they always look a bit awkward to me. As for Holteys, I can’t see what makes them so much more expensive than Brese planes personally. Who buys Holteys apart from collectors with deep pockets? If I was making premium infill planes, I’d want them to be used and appreciated by craftsmen not stuck in a glass display cabinet. What’s your opinion?
