I've seen many of the planes or drill braces converted into lamps. In fairness I dont mind them because they do provide a function. Saw this the other day and had to take a few pictures. This was a bit too much for my brain to cope with !


I'd have been tempted to buy the smoother had it not been for the screw holes from the wheels....and the extortionate price !

They are.

As the owner of 'several' wooden planes and 'some' old Meccano, I think it's a conspiracy to annoy me personally. :evil:

I bet they run smooth, no problem with chatter either.
Why not, there are so many knocking about and no one wants them these days.

Yes, there are plenty about, some in better condition than others, and if you want a few to use you can find them without too much bother or expense. Despite which, the makers of new planes all have more orders on their books than they can keep up with.

It's good to have choice and variety.

Losing a few indifferent examples without their irons to the tasteless modifiers or 'upcyclers' isn't really that serious, but the results of their vandalism still makes my teeth grate.

How about a plane with wheels... and a lightbulb? Oh, and the blade in the wrong way.

On the plus side, at least the price of unmolested woodies will come up eventually :wink:
