    Grathobel (not sure name in English--for making sliding dovetails)
    Lie-Nielsen scrub plane
    a stack of old moulding planes in various states of utility

    The only plane I feel I would like to add is an antique Norris smoothing plane. There are several on there I seldom use because I use machines for those operations, yet I cannot bring myself to part with them. When I list them all I feel like my tool consumption has become excessive.

    What the infills had going for them IMO is the mass for their size. That's the role the Lie-Nielsen smoothers play in my kit. Or you could just glue lead weights to a Stanley. (If you like that sort of thing.)

    Do they have the tapered irons? I had a few of their planes and they were pretty decent, but the irons were excellent. The planes were duplicates of Lie-Nielsen planes I had so I gave them to a friend and kept the irons. I have always intended to make wooden planed of some sort with them. They also have an unusual hexagon hole for the screw that joins the chipbreaker. I have a no. 4 size and a 5 1/2 size.

    Stanley 90
    There are two Stanley #90 planes in my accumulation.

    At least they are both rabbet/rebate type planes. The larger #90 was very inexpensive due to its being modified by a previous owner. To me it seems the opening up of the side has made the plane much more useable than its factory designed orientation. At the price it was offered it couldn't be refused.

    Or you could just glue lead weights to a Stanley. (If you like that sort of thing.)
    Maybe even a cast infill?

    I have two interesting hand planes. A 5 1/2 Bailey and a #6 Bailey. They are heavy, 3" wide. The 5 1/2 is 15" long and the 6 is 16" long.
    They are both heavy planes. I also have a 604, 605, and 607 Bedrock planes. The Bedrocks have Hock irons and breakers.

    What?

    Are we now having our photos edited without clarification as to why?

    Down to about 20 after clearing out a collection of over 250 about 3-4 years ago.

    About 31, after selling a Preston Mfg. router plane last week.

    Stanley #2, 3, 4C, 5, 7C, 62, 65, 75, 78.
    Clifton #4, 410
    Veritas medium shoulder, router, pair of skew rabbets, and flat, round, and concave spokeshaves
    Lie-Nielsen 60-1/2, 62, 95, 102
    Kunz #80
    Two vintage shop-made router planes
    Six wood-bodied: scrub plane, 3 molding, chamfer, brass sole

    I've probably owned 20 or more additional ones that I've sold.

    Maybe it is time for an intervention or something. A few days ago another one came home with me:

    #60-1:2 LA Block.jpg

    It is a fine little plane.

    I think I need my wife to peruse this thread. She asks why I have the 10 I have.
