Brese Panel Plane
It has been several months since I took delivery of my new Stainless Panel plane from Ron Brese. The first and lasting impression of this plane is how comfortable it is to use. The rear tote is large, but soft in its feel, and your index finger has a nice rounded area to rest. Given its weight and super tight mouth, it works as good as it looks. Ron himself can chime in on any specifics, but I am very happy with its performance, even though I am still developing my blade adjustment skills with my plane adjusting hammer. It was a large purchase, but since Ron has a back order list, I created my own law away program to help spread out the cost. I highly recommend Ron's planes for those who want high performance with work of art appearance.
