Craftsman Jack Plan
Am considering starting a plane collection following the gift of a few old tools fell in my lap. I was surprised to see how beautiful and with what care some woodworking tools in the past were produced, and amused to see the original price on the box it came in. Why bother finishing the sides of a plane with chasing and why is the bottom grooved?
