Hands down the coolest most versatile, most used hand tool I own.

Besides a hammer of course, is the Collins Bunny Plane

Hey Per,

Do you have the radiused sole as well? I do and would highly recommend it.

I bought these a few years ago and love them, so much I reviewed them for FHB. They're always in my truck and come out frequently.

I keep responding to all your posts. Can you tell I love the hand tools?

I was thinking of starting a "What's your favorite hand tool thread" Sub-topic: What's your favorite hand tool no one else may have heard of? Other sub-topic: What's your most used hand tool?


Okay, okay, I'll give it a rest!

Sounds good to me Kit --- I'm all ears and membrane. 

So why do you guys love this little plane so much?  It does score high on the cute scale.


Justin

P.S.  How far is the blade edge from the front of the plane?  I wish it could get right up into a corner.

Kit,

Yes I do,

Jaeger,

here is the deal.

the bunny plane is a adaptation of a luthiers violin plane.

But what the bunny plane excels at and differs in,is matching the face of two pieces of millwork.

Molding of any kind, hand rail, barrail, heck any two joined pieces of wood that are irregular due to manufacture

or installation. Imagine a load of Crown dropped of at a jobsite and the guy who picked it didn't notice that they had the

knives sharpened halfway through. (more Common then you could imagine)

Don't think of it as small as the different knives will actually remove a convex or concave surface

smoothly over a wide area as you can adjust the cut to a layer of skin thickness.

Now, I went looking for Kits review and I think its behind a paid firewall.

And for reasons that are not pertinent here, I no longer subscribe.

Maybe Kit will post it here for us....please.

I hope my description made sense.

My review was nothing special. They probably have a link to it on Collin's site.

Like Per said, they are just the cat's meow for any kind of fairing task. Scarfs in crown, base, chair rail, handrails, etc. They're small and easy to control. They are rabbet planes, so the blades extend flush with the outside of the body, great for getting into those little details.

They seem expensive at first glance, but they really do a job there isn't another readily available tool for, and the blades come honed, yes honed, for use.

If you dig planes and work with real wood moldings a lot, you'll love these little guys. Pick 'em up.

Hi
 Collins has 15% off all of their tools until the end of the month at their web site. If you want the plane or the coping foot (I think they have one that fits the Trion) now would be the time to buy.
