You got taken. Better send it to me, as it’s counterfeit. I’ll turn it in to the proper authorities, no charge…

Will the procedure work on other brands of plane irons, or is this specific to Stanley? :-)

Just Stanley PK. If you attempt it upon any other iron a demonic insurance salesman from connecticut will flood your inbox and voicemail with offers.

That’s really cool Chrisstef; since I’ve moved to Florida I’ve been looking around for stores like that…. no luck yet but I haven’t had a ton of time after getting settled. Your boy is growing fast before you know it he’ll be asking what everything is in the shop.

Take care
