In the shop…Stanley 60-1/2, Millers Falls 1455, and a 118 all-steel….all are low angle planes.

A few 9-1/2 Stanley block planes, a 9-1/4, a pair of 220s, and a 110….

I use the non-low angle ones for quickly knocking off a corners sharp edge, and places where the low angle planes shouldn’t go….some places with too much dirt and crud. Wonder how many haul one of the Veritas/ L-N blocks around, while shopping rough sawn lumber….a place where an old 110 would feel at home. A few swipes to check for figure….then back into the coat pocket.

( BTW, I have 10 block planes, at last count….) That all steel one has indeed “hopped” off the bench more than once, and onto the concrete floor of the shop….and right back up and right to work, no damage done.
