Often I use my low-angle block plane simply because it is small, but recently used my #4 with a fence clamped to the side to square up edges. It works well on end grain too. (Currently, the #4 is my next smallest plane)

I've only used small planes for trimming small parts "upside down" but if you've got a jointer plane and a bench vise handy that seems more like it.

Beautiful!

I haven't had the chance to see Fred's new plane, but I've heard it. The sweet sound of a well tuned plane making curlies comes through even over the phone.

Ron, will you have one of these to show at WIA? Or maybe Fred will bring his?

I think that next year WIA should be held at Fred's house, he's got so many tools I would love to see.

John,

I hope to have one of these at WIA, however if it doesn't work out with my schedule then maybe Fred would be willing to bring this plane. I actually had the first plane of this model at last years WIA with Gabon Ebony infill.

I'm hoping to also have a new even smaller smoother that will be an addition to the stainless line of planes at WIA. This won't be surprising to you but it will be Fred's plane as well.

Ron
