    Now this seems ridiculous

    If I'm not mistaken, isn't this a $9 HF plane?

    No, I think it's the $7.99 Harbor Freight plane. You were off by a buck and a penny.

    Man, the iron in the pics sure shows a fine edge. I'm guessing they used the 80 grit stone for that one.

    Didn't get to look at it. Bidding has ended.

    Frank, the picture is still showing. It might take a few seconds for it to load (or at least it did here), but it's still there.

    I was thinking about this, and while its easy to beat the guy up, there is a possibility that he has feted with them and really got these hand planes tuned up. Its probably not likely, but the reality is, even cheap handplanes can be fussed with enough to make them work exceptionally well. Most of us simply buy the more expensive models because it takes a whole lot less work to get them dialed in.

    Just presenting this as a possible explanation.

    I do however concede that its more likely that the person is greedy!
    I have no intention of traveling from birth to the grave in a manicured and well preserved body; but rather I will skid in sideways, totally beat up, completely worn out, utterly exhausted and jump off my tractor and loudly yell, "Wow, this is what it took to feed a nation!"
