    Hmm, I say while nodding. You must have Popeye-sized forearms to use a hulking No. 6 as a jack for hogging off material. Now, while I myself am no slouch at arm wrestling, I’d loath using a No. 6 for...

    A No. 6 Stanley Bailey. It was my first bench plane purchase. I’ve not lost sleep over it or anything, but I do regret it. It’s a size that does not lend itself to a clear role in my shop. It doesn’t...

    Agreed! You want your jointer (or technically in your case, your “try”) to be FLAT, flat. The good news is yours is not in the oft-seen and feared banana shape. It looks like a keeper to me. Judging...
