Sometimes that is so. I tried to photograph the wear stages of the surface grinder wheel but the results were not exactly stellar. At any rate one can see the aforementioned Red Ring, which moves from leading edge to trailing edge as the wheel wears.

Next month, in addition to the Gentleman from Australia, there will also be a visit from the French Speaking Gentleman form Tahiti. In fact this person has appeared in these pages before when he spent a few days eating metal dust in my shop-and collected his M12. This time he will collect his S20A which is the one pictured here-made some time back. The wood is Imbuia. That man must take a 21 gun salute.

Y'know something Philip? I am starting to think you don't deliver and everyone has to go to long cloud land to pick stuff up! Do you get a commission from the tourism industry?

Is that a spot of rust on the top of that blade near the adjuster? Nah....couldn't be...

G'dye mite....More's the pity they can't all come to take delivery in person, but I fear some are afraid of toppling off the edge of the earth here.
The black dot on the blade top is a veldt tip pen mark to make sure that blade stayed with that plane. I shall remove it without delay.

Once again, a lovely plane Philip. That's a lucky French-speaking man from Tahiti.

Lataxe hasn't grasped how to use the Private Message facility on this forum yet-possibly because his screen is full of big pictures?

Attachment 6318

Attachment 6319

Attachment 6320

Attachment 6321Here comes S20A #87 , closely followed by M12#88- both for the same gentleman. Nuclear grade dovetails and nice Rhodesian Teak. "Nuclear grade???" that was the expression used by a Norton Abrasives rep who dropped in yesterday, and I think I will adopt the expression for my own use. I would say that Lauries cookies are nuclear grade.
The knob and handle will get a shot of Zinsser shellac sealer followed by two shots of a Special Pre-catalysed lacquer.

Unfortunately there seems to be something wrong with your attachments, Philip. The kitties came through fine, but your nuclear-grade planes give only errors.
