There are planes and there are planes. Arguably the best in the world are made in Scotland by Karl Holtey. He can spend up to 200 hours making a single plane, and they sell for 2500 to 7000 pounds each. Shown is his No. 982 smoother.

Maybe a Stanely No. 45 with all of the irons. :smiley:

Tool porn. I have a Stanley plane, but my hobbies rarely require anything finer than a Surform tool. Yes, the real plane takes beautiful paper-thin shavings. I wouldn’t dare to use a 2500 to 7000 pounds tool, I would dent the blade in no time.

You and I must work for the same firm , Bent Nail Construction. I can lay a 2x4 on the floor and a 116 penny nail next to it. If I pick up a hammer, 2 things happen instantly, the 2x4 splits down the middle and the nail bends in fright.
