Had a milestone birthday yesterday. Got a shoebox sized gift from swmbo,
tear off the paper... Oh Baby, it's a L-N box!!! ohboyohboyohboy.
A brand spanky new L-N Low Angle Jack. Life is good, even at 40.
Immediately took the plane out to the shop, mounted a piece of mahogany in
the new bench (pictures forthcoming) and proceded to take silky smooth
2/1000" shavings off it right outta the box, no honing, no adjusting, no
nothin. And this was on ribbon-stripe, reversing grain mahogany to boot.
Did I mention that life is good?
Oh btw, I'm not gloating about the plane, I'm gloating about my wife.
