Re: Tools: Hock Blades, planes, choices, money...

: Almost all of the fancy new planes are reproductions or slight
: variations of the Stanleys. They make them because a certain
: class of people will buy the new ones rather than find and tune
: up an old one.

BTW- I don't mean you, Malcom. There are a lot of people who will go out and spend a couple hundred bucks on a Lie Neilson plane and never use it.
