I found out this morning that my (and suspectably MANY other lumberjocks) absolute favourite reference on Stanley hand planes, The superior works - Patrick's Blood & Gore is “under heavy construction”, and almost all the pages are gone! Naturally, I went “Plane” crazy, and wondered if any of you jocks knew anything about the downtime’s purpose and duration?

I hope it’s back up soon. It’s a fantastic reference.

Possibly Patrick is polishing his plane prose privately?

If you have to have a quick fix, there is always the “Wayback Machine”

But Blood&Gore boasts the benefits of Bailey so benevolently !

It needs to be re-written. It just proves that a biased, mediocre reference with good pictures is better than nothing at all.

Well, it’s up and running again. I don’t agree with David Grimes that the blood & gore is mediocre, I think the text is both entertaining and most helpfull, and the majority of the planes have a thurough description. That beeing said, it could, as most things, always be better.

Ultimately, blood and gore stinks as well.
