While talking about "small" tools, I wonder what's next in line at Bridge City in the spirit of size of the KM-1,,,, since part of their line up seems to be going miniature.

Since you bring that up,

I would be going beyond the lap joint to the direction of the MS-96 Precision Measuring Stick. Bridge City Tool Works - MS-96 Precision Measuring Stick - MS-96 Precision Measuring Stick
(sorta like a big brother to the KM-1)

but actually, my "miniature" thoughts were little finger planes in Black Chrooooome.

Peter, Peter, you need a testosterone fix -- "cute" and tools do not belong in the same sentence!

Cute applies to Gillian (and I'm sure your lovely wife although I'm not certain we've been graced with her picture here) but tools?

I'm sure Fred can come up with some appropriate hyperbole, but elegant, well designed, come quickly to mind.

Let's help Poto out before he backslides completely and starts buying stuff like this

Pink Tools for Women

OK, I'll buy the idea of tools sized for "smaller hands" but let's not call them............... nope, ain't gonna say it

Jay

So I clicked on your link, Jay, while Gillian was looking over my shoulder. "Oooooo! So cute!"

Okay - maybe you're right. I'll try to be more manly. There - I'm scratching my belly and burping at the same time. Good?
