The first step is recognizing that you have a problem.
The only problem I see, though is…..
You can’t get to your workbench!!!

I’ll be happy to lighten your load…
For a small fee!!!

Nice “little” collection!!!

The crazy thing is that the majority of them are unique with only a handful of duplicates.

Do you use them or just look at them? With a collection like that, everything in my shop would have moulding of some sort on it. :)

Mike, I feel your pain. I too am an addict. I came to realize that I couldn’t make use of them all, so I managed to stop buying.
HOWEVER, if you would be interested, I would be willing to see if we could arrange a swap for some of our planes. I currently use as many as I can, mostly the complex profile molding planes, but have some others that are duplicates, or are specials I’ll never use. If you think you’d be interested, let me know.
Thanks, Oldtool.
