Bridge City tools are not mass produced, and they are not for everyone. I doubt I'll ever own any of their fine tools, but I for one like the idea that tool makers like this are out there

Check this item out, now this is clever. A little steep in price again but still very very clever in my view especially after all my sharpening recently.
Cynthia i think this place is like a joint you buy art at. I cannot see myself actually taking a $2200 plane out to my shop and getting dust on it.
I have a couple of their squares, nice enough, but I use Starrett/Mitatoyo most of the time in he shop. The Starrett/Mitatoyos just feel better.
They have been around a long time. and their prices have risen to the point that it is not justified. Cool stuff if you want to impress someone though.......
Cool stuff, Rob, although I like the look of the brass version of that plane better. The contrast sells it for me. (Although I'm not gonna rush out and spend north of $500 to own one.)

At that price I better just be able to set the tool on the wood and leave while it does it's job.... wow..

My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.
I have trouble accepting it will do the job better than a standard item properly set up.
Yes, a response is appropriate.
I have a brother in law who would buy one just to prove he can. Like a $20,000.00 watch that doesn't keep time any better than a $30.00 Casio.
