Default CT-18 Plane

Hi,

These have been a long time in the making and there are about thirty left. Here's Johns blog post talking a bit about how they're made. Last Call for the CT-18 Dual Low Angle Smoothing Plane ... - John's Blog

These are fantastic and with the planing skids, can help making stock to the exact size.

Here's the catalog page: CT-18 Dual Low Angle Smoothing Plane - Commemorative Tools - Tools - Bridge City Tool Works

These are a commemorative tool and once they are sold out, they won't be made again.

Holy crap! That thing costs more than my table saw, and I wouldn't even know how to use it?!

That said, if I win the lottery I'd spend a considerable amount of it on BCTW items. I think they are "oh so' cool...!

I got one of these - it's one seriously cool plane. Bigger than a #4, but smaller than a jack plane, it nicely fits the "hole" in my plane collection. Hefty and smooth, it leaves a shiny surface. And amazingly versatile with all the different angle grinds on the blades.

Nice to look at, too!

P.S. I don't have a table saw...
