    Maybe we could have lunch someplace with a wooden table so we could try it out there. Not sure the restaurant would like it, though

    Old Street used to be known as Clark and Williams. They are about as good a woodie as you can find.

    Four of my planes are like that. Keeps a person on their toes.

    A no.5 1/2 is my most used plane

    Thanks for the discussion guys. I had decided on a bronze #3 but it was out of stock so went for a #5. I'll most likely end up with the #3 at some stage in the near future tho .

    I like the width of the #4 and enjoy using my LN Jack Rabbet which is similar in weight and just a bit shorter than the #5 so I think I'll get along with it well. Also looking forward to swapping and playing around with the 45deg vs 50deg frog in my #4 using the frog from the #5.

    Cheers, Dom

    I have Stanley Bedrock planes. I also have 5 1/2 Stanley. I guess I go for old iron. I know Lie-Nielsen and Veritas are good.
