Stanley and Mr Bailey...kind of a love-hate relationship wasn't it? Still Mr Bailey was a very talented plane-maker. I wish to be a lot like him.
I have a few ideas of my own that I would like to make...an improvement to the Router Planes is one I have been giving that a lot of thought lately. Stanley and Lie Nielsen both make router planes, but I got some improvements that they have not thought of.
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!"
