    WHOO HOO! Look what arrived today!!



    Look what was waiting for me when I got home!!

    A spiffy (almost) new LN 4 1/2 and a bronze LN 140 courtesy of recent purchase from a classified add on WoodCentral. These bad boys look pretty much brand spanking new! Besides being in near new condition, they came complete with their original paperwork and boxes. For operational purposes, these don't matter much. But it just goes to show you how "complete" these are.

    I'm pretty excited about these two planes. For a long time I'd been looking on Ebay for a Bedrock #604 1/2 or a Stanley #140 but I could never find either for less than a brand new LN, or in good enough condition to warrant the expense. These two were also a present to myself to celebrate the new job I started today. But I pretty much exhausted the "tool fund" (generated by recent tool sales) with these guys. I might have enough left for one more purchase.
    See ya around,
    Dominic

    Congrats. Are you sure you built your tool cabinet big enough? (Or maybe you're already working on the next one.)

    I don't understand this attraction/fascination with planes, especially the LNs.
    But, if you are happy, I'm happy for you.

    Some folks can collect the darnedest things.
    Like tomahawks.
    (Yes, Dale, one is still missing.)

    BTW, I didn't digress too much. The second from bottom is a neander squaring broad hatchet.

    Toni,
    I should have had these when I was building my tool cabinet! THEN I could have justified them more easily! As it stands I might have to wait until after Xmas to work on any hand tool projects. I might have some turning commisions to complete before then!
    See ya around,
    Dominic
