Post: RE: Wood body planes

If you just want one for your mantle, get an antique one and you can fix it up with little risk. If you want one that works flawlessly AND looks great, go with Steve Voigt as Warren says. Kevin

Check out Jason Lonon. He makes nice adzes if he has any in stock. I own several of his tools and they are first rate, well finished and hold an edge.  Kevin

Hi Derek, I currently own the LN guide. I like it a lot as a precise side clamping guide. It’s especially great with short blades like spokeshaves with the long jaws. I’ve been thinking of getting ...
