Nice! I would love to see it in action!

I am planning a video of it.

Are you going to use it?

I'm too frugal to buy anything that someone would lust over. :(

I'm gonna use this thing just like any other tool I own. Which really means very little, and only on weekends and special occasions... Just kidding, I'm gonna use the hell out of this plane!

Mel, what is it designed to do? What is it's job... Besides looking super cool.

It's a dual-angle block plane. The blade comes stock with a blade that has two angles on it.

Funny as it may be... I specifically didn't order that book because I knew if I had the book I would order more stuff. Ugh... That didn't really work!

Is the book free? If they were smart it would be...

LOL... I have the BCTW shirt too... People asked if they gave it to me because I've bought so much from them lately... I just laughed.

Joe, the book is around $50 plus shipping.

Very cool looking tool! Can we see some shavings please? Maybe take one of Tom's chopsticks down to a toothpick?

Ask, and receive.

Thought I'd get a pic of the BCTW family...

The HP-9 will not live in the box. Far too versatile, and besides it doesn't fit in the box with the depth skids... :) 

Most of this has been captured in other threads, but if anyone wants more info on anything here I'll be more than happy to help out if I can.

Three planes on a mission!

       And I thought the "green" addiction was bad!  This sucks you into a wormhole that even a second mortgage won't fix!

Now you're just showing off and it's awesome. These tools are definitely unique and cool looking. So how do you change it to higher angles? 

I think you should do a live Google Hangout on air to show these off.

Hummmmm, that's a lot of asking...

I'm jealous --- not about the planes --- but that you won't drop them off the bench! 

If I had anything like that, a sander hose would suddenly swoooooosh across my bench (by itself, you understand) --- and all that steel hits the floor... Those shop gremlins get me every time... :)

I think BCTW planes are more likely to survive accidents unharmed than traditional cast-iron planes.
