Bridge City Tool Works has their low angle mini block plane on sale for 40% off, https://bridgecitytools.com/collections/planes/products/hp-8-mini-block-plane and their dual angle block plane also on sale. They have depth skids too. I just rceived my mini plane today, it looks really sweet. https://bridgecitytools.com/collections/planes I haven't heard that brand mentioned here before, but it seems very precisely made, and so far. measures very flat. I was informed of this sale by the last SIMSCal meeting, https://www.simscal.com/ . What are your thoughts on their planes?

History of Small Violin Planes??
David Beard posted a topic in The PegboxWere these part of classical making, or a later development? Does anyone know the history? Are small planes part of the Strad Museum's tool inheritance? I'm curious. Also wondering about buying these. So far I haven't. I've just been using fine feather cuts with the gouge, followed by scraping. I don't feel like I'm missing out by not having these, but maybe I'm wrong? Wondering both about their value and their historical place. Are there other makers who don't really use small planes? My smallest plane today is about 3 inches long.
Most suitable plane for plate jointing
Thos. posted a topic in The PegboxWould a plane bedded with a low angle be best suited for top and back plate jointing? Given the grain orientation of curly maple would the low angle plane be the preferred choice for jointing the back plate? Would using that same low angle plane for jointing present problems in the spruce of the top plate?
