219804 John Junkroski <jpjunk@m...> 2011‑07‑24 Re: Razor blades and planing
An unprecedented occurrence, the planets must be in alignment.... I went
out to the barn and found the razor blade plane in the first drawer I
opened. Bloody amazing.

In fact I found two, both of which claim to be useful for straight and
curved work. One lists warped doors, dresser drawers, fine work on
boats, paintscraper, cabinet makers, model makers, pattern makers,
tradesmen, handymen, hobbyists and housewives. What an amazing tool! Why
would anyone ever want another plane?

I posted pics on Galoot Image Central under jonjunk.
