    A little Eye Candy

    I went to the Lie-Nielsen tool event this AM lots of eye candy. Played a little bit with a few of the planes, watched a demo of sharpening.

    I left my wallet in the truck to help me resist any temptation.

    Which low angle block plane, the one with the adjustable mouth?

    That one is certainly sweet!

    I agree with Toni, total tool porn

    Not a Block plane, a Jack plane. Low angle.

    The low angle Jack. My most favorite! Also have the low angle block with the adjustable mouth. Love it, too.

    On the lust list is the low angle smoother, but the tool fund still reeling over the new lathe and the hit of a new water heater!

    I tool my wallet in with me. No problem. There was no money in it!
