    1982 Martin T-23

    Thread Starter: Patrick Walsh

    Complete set of Lie Nielsen bench planes

    Thread Starter: Thomas Wilson

    Trouble Setting Up Scrub Plane

    My #40 scrub plane is nice for smaller work. My beat up #5-1/4 is nicer for medium work. My #5, jack plane, was very nice for working a large 4X10"X7'
