... arrived on Friday.

I've only played around with them (#11 half-round and #11 200mm rats-tail), but all I can say so far is,

WOO-HOOOOO!

They're left handed (suits me, sir!), and the cut and finish are both terrific.

I am really, really pleased, and grateful to both Noel and Rod for arranging the group buy. If they hadn't I'd probably never have indulged myself, but I'm very glad I did.

E.

PS: I"m probably going on about this a bit, but did I mention I'm pleased?

Good stuff Eric.

These are definitely on my to-get list but the queue for my money is a long one at the mo'.

How does the #11 cut feel? Does it seem like a good all-rounder cut that would be good for most jobs?

I tried it on a scrap of well-dried Oak - cuts effortlessly and leaves a very smooth finish (clean up with finer than 80grit at a guess). It's also easy to control. I bevelled edges and tried a U-shaped groove). I haven't tried the rat's-tail yet.
