Reading this tonight suddenly makes me feel good about the money I spend on Festool.  Compared to this hand plane I think Festools are very underpriced  [smile]

I'm sure that to "someone" that hand plane is a great bargain just as I'm sure that to a whole lot of other people (including me) that Festool products are a great bargain.  It's just a matter of perspective (and cash available) since a nice $38.1 million Ferrari 250 GTO Berlinetta just sold last week [eek]

The explanation goes like this:

Honey why did I get a notice from the mortgage company that we didn't pay this month?

Well you said I could get a new hand plane, and you always tell me to get the best, so I did.  I did get free shipping! 

I married an idiot!  I hope you can sleep in the box it came in.

Good point about people watching.  I will be more careful next time.

Also, maybe you could wait and get a reconditioned plane for $1895  [cool]

you did not buy 2? I usually buy 2 one for use and one " just in case" the amount of Festool boxes are getting harder to store.

it is how they make some veneers. The blade is likely hand forged Japanese samurai sword steel. Definitely an heirloom piece you better know how to use properly and appreciate before purchase

The hand plane I mentioned in the original post is not the "monster plane" in the video but the cost is almost as large [eek]

I have a wide Japanese wooden plane and it works great but I forgot how much I payed for it 30 years ago [embarassed]

If you want a First Aid Systainer, PM me *NOW*. I actually *STOPPED* accepting orders at noon today, but I can open it back up quick if you want one. But if you wait more than a day or so the wheels will be in motion and you'll be out of luck.

It seems like most people who were interested have now ordered one (or two - or three  [tongue]) so this is likely to be the last batch of them for a L O N G time - if not forever!

Pretty sure it's been posted on the site before, but mentioning veneers and these planes made me think of this video.

Some of you who do Japanese woodworking may already know about this, but the great purveyor of Japanese antiques located in Brooklyn, Shibui, is temporarily closing up shop due to space/lease issues.  Their relocation time/place is still TBD, but they remain open for business online.  In addition to having a huge selection of furniture, they also have a wide variety of antique Japanese hand tools, from planes and chisels to the large whale-shaped Maebiki-Nokogiri saws that were used to mill logs into lumber.  Many of them are still in great working condition as well.

http://shibui.com/

Most of the tools are not listed on the website, but you can email the owner, Dane Owen, and ask him about availability.
