    Wow my first antique hand plane...What a fine Gift!

    Hi Family

    Been having a slight issue with the forum today, 4 time i am trying to post this thread. Token keeps expiring. So here goes again after having logged off and cleared everything.

    Well if you followed this thread

    http://familywoodworking.org/forums/showthread.php?t=14444

    You will know that I receive a parcel today from a place called Michigan and a town called Delton.

    Besides a chunk of really nice wood I also found this plane in the parcel.

    So a big thank you to Larry Merlau for spoiling me with these great gifts. I donít know what I have done to deserve this.

    Larry you have touched my heart on this one and I will cherish this plane to the end of my days.

    This is a Fulton 9Ē plane and is still a tool that was made in the good old US of A.

    Very cool. Maybe he wants you to plane that piece of wood he sent you instead of turn it?
