Okay, so I'm not really a collector of shavings, but if I was I think this'd be the Stanley #1 of the collection I don't have... :shock:

Cheers, Alf

I like this .pic. of the production. I guess we will see some matches from the "collectors" on the forum.

Brilliant! Loved both of those. Still clear straight grained pine is easy-peasy..... :wink:
Oh, and what that in inches?
Cheers
Philly :D

The gen is Port Orford Cedar is favoured apparently. Full story here. I think I might favour air-dried, straight-grained sycamore myself. Good chance of some excellent shavings, but a bit more of a challenge than a softwood. Hmm, what we need is a forum plane competition... Hey Philly, you could have about a dozen entrants. :p :lol:

Cheers, Alf

That's simply amazing, quite depressing actually. I take part in planing competitions and the best I've done so far is 1/10000". I'm convinced that the body of the plane matters little, almost everything is in the blade and sharpening. That's why I have a wooden plane on the drawing board that'll hold a really good Japanese blade. I'm pretty convinced (without really knowing for sure) that Japanese blades can be sharpened to a considerably greater degree than any Western blades.

Well both pictures have gone :( I think we have pulled too much bandwidth on them :cry:

So what were you all looking at?

Dave, I just looked for the first time and it worked for me.

Impressive, but - as Frank said - ever so slightly depressing!

I can see them now, :D I see what you mean. :roll:

I looked at the rest of the pictures, is that chap wearing safety socks while holding the plane with his feet to adjust the blade bed? :wink:

Beautiful planing :)

I have played around planing Sycamore which is beautiful to plane and get pretty impressive shavings but nothing like those :shock:

Phil, 0.01mm is 0.39 thousandths of an inch

Tony is it that thick? I feel much better now. Here's one about the same thickness. It looks quite fragile but it actually held together quite well. The wood is hard maple.

C'mon Alf,
Go ahead and do it with an assortment of planes and see if we can guess which shavings were made with which plane.
Looking forward to making a fool of myself again,
Frank
