Peter,

It is not even close. I have rolled over and then gone into a fetal position sucking my thumb. I am obviously a mere piker in comparison. In fact there is NO comparison. WOW WOW WOW!!!!!!!!

Never fear Fred. I'm sure if you gave him the choice he'd swap all his tools for yours. I see an awful lot of repetition and duplication in those photos. And nothing that comes close to a Marcou. He may have a hundred Stanley planes but how many can you use at once? If he has a thousand Stanley planes and picks out the very best one it still won't work as well as your Marcou.

Great article Roger. A lot of wisdom and respect for his tools and his relationship with them. I like his take on mojo. A bit of a hoarder but
that is something I can relate to. Just ask my wife.
