Dave,
Interesting and expensive!

I once nearly bought a tool by Bridge City but their absolutely hopeless website and the vile shopping system put me right off. I also sent detailed comments on what was wrong to them and even got a reply acknowledging that some of my criticisms were valid in their view - sad to say they appear still not to have done anything about it.

$1500 = 1 Plane - 2 minutes to change angle.

or:-

$1500 = 6 to 8 LV/LN planes - 3 seconds to change angle.

H'mmm... I know where my dosh would go. I can't help thinking that however clever the designer is, he somehow missed the point a little bit. One has to admire the sublime quality though.

I have a few BC items, and they always seemed to me not to have been deeply thought out. Pretty but not proven. I have never had one of their planes.

Ulmia used to have, may still, a plane with adjustable bed, possibly a version of their reform smoothing plane. Never used it, but wanted one just as they were tipping over. The German smoothers are really excellent, for real world work. I hope they bring it back. Wasn't a bad price when compared to some of the ones ECE makes that just have a few scraps of fancy wood in them. ECE is execelent also.
