Oh, and don't think I haven't noticed you've failed to answer the question, btw... [-X I told you mine, you tell me yours. :wink:

IIRC it was 4.00 GPB + P&P from bookfinder. Still cheaper than the reprint, and with hard covers and better-than-reprint quality, especially on the photographs.
Big spender. Second edition, £3, local bookshop. See? It was lucky find; it's not like I ordered it. :whistle:

Cheers, Alf

bugbear said that DC talks about convex, and i say concave,
so i checked seems to me all the talk is about having
the front and rear, plus around the mouth, should be in line
in between it should be hollow like a japanese chisel.

with a convex sole, you are surely never going to get what you
want.

'tis all a question of degree. DC is not speaking of something like a compass planes, he's speaking of a uniform curve of around 2 thou sagitta max on a #5 1/2
