    New Toys

    Got a few new pieces for the collection. Stanley 100 & 100 1/2. Pretty small and will probably never see use.

    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    So cute, I'd have to fight for room on the mantle for them.

    Nice b day present? Happy birthday!

    Why is that, surely not because they are small? I have a LN "Violin Makers" block plane that I use a lot. I will probably pick up a squirrel tail block plane one day. I like how they fit in my hand.

    Bill, don't fit in my hands real well. Will give them a good try for sure.

    I have a Lie Nielsen one and I do use it, specially for chamfering and rounding edges. If you feel guilty for that, you can send them over here ( I pay the shipping) and I assure you that they will be used.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Nice, It's hard to get a scale of how big they are. What are they used for?

    They are for small detail work, I guess. I will give them a shot when I get to where I need something done

    Two options, one is to let kids use them or get their help planing (supervised of course) when you have a small project.
    Two, is to make something like that push stick from a while back to hold it:
