New toy. (Actually arrived a couple of weeks ago, but forgot to post). It's heavy, but very well made. Need to remove all the grease it's shipped in, and give the blade a once over on the diamond stones.

They do some nice spokeshaves too, by the look of it, and less than half the price of my Veritas.
But they never got to Carcassonne.

Very nice. I am interested in why though when you can pick up a good usable Stanley or Record No 4 from any car boot sale in the land for about £10.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.

Cos carboot sales do not exist here.

And before you get jealous its only 4s and 110s that are really common. You see an occasional 5 and I waited years for a 7.

Today I saw someone in a YouTube video use the left edge of a digital vernier calliper to measure the depth of a step, and my mind was blown a little.

The oft forgotten way to use Vernier calipers. Very useful when you need it.
