I'm gonna' order two. But should I get the case too?
PS: I have three tools from Bridge City: a 4" X 2" saddle square, a
3" try square, and a little jointmaker's hammer, all rec'd as gifts.
I gotta' admit that I LIKE them all.
At that price you should buy everyone on here one. I'll e-mail you my
address and be looking for it next week.
And for Christmas, I'll want a second one so that I don't have to
change the iron around.
Guess I'm lucky, still learning to properly learn to use my father and
grandfathers old planes and the proper sharpening. By the time I have
them perfected I probably won't need a better plane Not knocking the
tool, but I've never seen the great wood workers holding up some high
tech new tool as their savior. It is pretty though.
To put it in perspective, for that price you could get:
Lie-Nielson low angle block,
Lie-Nielson standard block,
L-N #5 Jack,
High angle frog for the #5,
a L-N medium shoulder plane,
a spare O-1 blade.
I think I'll pass.
It *is* pretty, though.
That's $859 for a 2-blade-angle plane. They say
"We believe the CT-17 Dual Angle Block Plane is the most versatile
block plane available today.one plane body with one iron equals two
This is completely wrong.
For $250 you can get the Veritas Smoothing Plane with THREE different angles.
For $36 more, you can get the toothed blade as well. So the Veritas is twice as
as the Bridge City.
I love mine.
