I purchased machines at the very beginning of my WW endeavor i honestly believe that was a big mistake. Because I got so involved in the machines I forgot about the project and thats where your mind needs to be. Seeing Tom's first video brought life to and almost lost and dead woodworker. I now have spent the last six months buying nothing but handtools and what a change it has made in my life. It would be nice to find some better or workable wooden hand planes. I think ive pretty much purchased all the broken ones so I should be getting closer to the good ones by now lol. But I suppose Im trying to say thank you Tom for bringing me back from the woodworkers grave yard. I cant remember me ever being this motivated over making furniture . Thank you very juch
