Your Say..

Smuggy - I've been collection tools for 20 years and I always have a couple of these planes in my collection.

Some say that as a user plane they are hopeless but seriously, who would ever use them. They are beautiful to look at and are nice to display. I suppose that is the difference between a collector and a user of planes.

"Just stumbled across your website and an absolute treasure trove of information. I was recently given an old Stanley 110 block plane and wanted to know more about it. Your website told me everything I needed to know.

But there is so much more to read. I forsee me spending a lot of time just reading page after page. I can appreciate how much time this will have taken to put together.

I just wanted to let you know that your hard work is appreciated."
