Sauer and Steiner A1 panel plane 16 1/2 inches Hock high carbon iron and very nearly a pound and a half heavier than my LN #7 (which is 8 lbs).

It arrived this morning and has already taken a couple of perfect shavings. More will have to wait until my bench is clear of other stuff first.

Fantastic - what did SWMBO say? We sacrificed our holiday for that?

Absolutely stunning. You must be over the moon.

Chris, it looks gorgeous. Can you feel the weight when you are pushing it or does it just glide along as if on a cushion of air?

Will you make a box to keep it in?

Will a new phase now be added to the english language

"keeping up with the Phillies"

Scott, I shall indeed lose no opportunity to say a bit more about it when I have the bench clear and some miles under my belt!

Tim - in my right arm!

Alf, Do you suppose his SWMBO is allowed anywhere near these pages?

Tony, definitely worth the wait! It made the anticipation that much greater and when the parcel arrived I felt like a little kid at Christmas - only difference is I'm playing with the thing inside and not the packing material!

Adam, think it might have been a car actually...

Gill, what a ghastly pun :lol: :lol: :lol:

Philly, with your track record you must have known you would be blamed!

Andy, it feels as though I could wield it all day - mind you I have been going to the gym! As for a proper place to put it I am contemplating my wall space and a pukka tool cabinet.

Tim - missed that Ebay one - darn!

Thats just a work of art Chris, I'm totally speechless at its beauty! I hope your very, very proud of it. Its also nice that you can still get items of this quality and craftsmanship in this day-n-age!

Fantastic and totally green with envy! :D Look forward to seeing/hearing more from you once you've had time to put it into action!

Fantastic gloat to beat all gloats and well worth it, a really beautiful looking plane. I can hear Philly now, must have one, must have one :D :D :D

You never came back with a price; or have we got to guess?

Don't make us wait too long for a review.
