Thanks for the compliments. I started a blog about my journey through the japanning process. Hopefully it will be informative and helpful to some others. If you have other questions as I go through the series, feel free to ask on those threads.

While searching for rust/antiques on my way home from my road trip to Iowa, I came across a place in Walnut, Iowa called Blum Tools. It looked really intriguing but it was Sunday and the place was closed, so I was really bummed out. I’m even more bummed out now that I checked out his website tonight. Check it out, some pretty sexy looking custom planes.

Johnny – a straight razor shave is where it’s at! I have a barber local to me who offers strait razor shaves and I try to get in there to get one from her at least once a month.

Richard- That sounds like a good plan :-) I did pop into a local ‘Old Man’s’ Barbers to chat to the guys. They were very helpful and told me to come back if I had any questions or needed any tips, which was nice of them! Other people have simply told me not to try it myself….... What’s the worst that could happen?? :-)

CL-You guys are SOooo lucky you can pick up Bedrocks so easily & cheaply. We have to pay through the nose here in the UK. Lovely user you have there- well done that man!

OK, as promised. Let’s get this thing started. Those interested, PM me. This should be in the $1000’ish range with irons. Rich, but I’m sure here has been planning a left nut for one.

No type study, but its how I found it. 3 patents, large brass iron adjuster, low knob, SW iron. That makes it a 11, 12,15 or something like that. But it works well and its for sale. New tote, new paint, sharpened etc.

I’d love the Miller’s, but I’m not even gonna bother to PM. Unless I find one aty a yard sale for $25, I’ll probably never own one.

I see some without any knobs or totes. Those I may be able to afford.

-1 on Mantitties.

Andy, Normans cabinet it amazing! Favorite’ed! Holly shiit that’s nice.

Talcum poder clogs up cuts pretty good. Helps stop the bleeding.

Cuban coffee for me, like expresso but stronger. I make it on my old school itallian stove top percolator.

I’m interested in the straight razors, I like that they are not disposable, and since we all are pretty good at sharpening, sounds like a good fit. I’ll need to learn more.

Wow Al, hell of a collection there. How much for that DT saw?
