We thoroughly researched sharpening and tuning and we've applied the knowledge, but in the hand plane world that's like first grade. What I really want to use is a Ron Breeze plane. For 2000 bucks that sucker must do some miraculous things as well as being beautiful.
Byron,

I have a couple of planes by Ron Brese and they are superb. He is also a fantastic sharpener and will also tune up blades for you. As Peter mentioned he is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. I hope that you have a great time.

Fred

Man, we are really looking forward to this event as well as meeting Ron after hearing all of these great comments. Can't wait to feel how a nice plane cuts. Hope they don't accept credit cards at this thing! Yeah right!
