Derek & Scott,

Konrad is truly remarkable and I am more than fortunate to own these planes as well as those from people like Philip Marcou, Ron Brese, Raney Nelson, John Economaki and Karl Holtey. I consider myself to be one of the luckiest people in the world.

Derek, I am very glad that you posted here as you obviously think that I have been using the six planes shown here incorrectly. I have found that I can use the various number 4's on larger parts of my body to remove body hair. On the other hand, the Bayfields are perfect for shaving my face.

If this is not the intended use of the planes, PLEASE feel free to set me straight.

Fred

Tim et al,

You are quite welcome and I very much agree with the idea above by Chris that this would be a great lead in to an hour long video. I would actually like to see longer videos on Ron Brese, Raney Nelson, Philip Marcou, Karl Holtey, Larry Williams, Matt Bickford, Tom Lie-Nielsen, Robin Lee, John Economaki, Dave Jeske, etc. What an amazing group that would be.

Fred

Hey Fred, you have a Hotley? Let's have a few photos of that up, please!

Would "a fleet" of hotley's be more accurate then, Potosan?

Perhaps not a fleet, but more than one. And of course, the most rare one possible...
