I just received my new Knight Coffin Smoother in Purpleheart with a 50
deg angle. The gloat is that this plane is one of the ones Steve offered
for 1/2 price a while back. This is ONE AWESOME looking plane. I can't
wait to run it past some Bird's-eye maple once is acclimatizes. THANKS
I received my padauk razee jack plane from steve a few weeks ago, with the
ebony inlay. I was responding to the 1/2 price offer, too, but couldn't
bring myself to screw him out of his money, so just took $30 off, so I think
I still got a gloat. Together with the padauk smoother I purchased earlier
(before the inlay idea was upon us, darn it, they don't match exactly) they
make for some wonderful planing. I also bought the shoulder plane set he
sells, but haven't used them yet.
a hour or two? I spent 3 minutes (G) another 3 minutes and the blade would be
perfect. you need to come to my shop and I will get you speeded up. lets see 20
irons a week to start with (G)
cool Now I feel all warm inside. well it could be it is 87 in here (G)
it was a really good trade. I use the jigs on almost every plane.
the only change I could see was a deeper body with more relief for shavings.
I used your idea and made a tote drilling jig. I found the jorgenson clamp
kits so I did not have to tear a clamp apart.

Great gloat. Coons are a sign of garbage all over the driveway most of the
"We have a firm commitment to NATO, we are a *part* of NATO. We have a firm
commitment to Europe. We are a *part* of Europe."
Well I sort of thought that coons were nocturnal and stayed away from
people. Maybe not the trash cans, but people in general.
We vacationed on Sanibel Island last June. Drove through the nature
preserve there and saw some creature. Large body, tiny head, walked on
fours. We had no clue what the 5' creature was. About an hour later we
were on a dock and saw a small coon wander down the beach area. By the
body shape we knew that the giant creature was a coon, but the SIZE!!!
had to weigh close to 100lbs. I thought the 30-40 pound coon we have
roaming the backyard some evenings was big... it just didn't compare to
the coon on sanibel. After seeing those two coons, we kept seeing coons
all over the island, mostly in the trash bins, pools, saunas, etc.
Here in SC they just might be a sign of rabies. Look out if the coon
is liking to be near you and get nearer! Since Aug 1 here there have
been 6 rabies incidents here in my county. 3 cats, 1 fox, and two
Ya'll be careful out there, ya' heer

What are coons a sign of... free walnut?
Yes that's exactly what the coon wanted to do. I shooed it to the front
porch and kept on working. A few minutes later I checked on the coon.
The coon saw me and got up, walked over, acting like it was going to rub
up against me. I did something to make it stop and it sat there in the
driveway in the rain until I closed the garage door. I was going to call
animal control yesterday but the coon has disappeared. I figure rabbies,
but someone might have been feeding it so it was accustomed to people.
Having a two year old, I'm not willing to take a chance.
It's pretty much endemic all across North America. Not common, you understand,
