For me, the highlight of the Lie-Nielsen Handtool Event this past weekend in Kennesaw, GA was getting to try out the new precision stainless steel plane by Ron Brese. http://www.breseplane.com/page05.html What an unbelieveable tool. I hooked my index finger around the front knob and pulled the plane the length of a scrap of hardwood. The plane took a full length, full width ultra thin shimmering shaving and left behind a flawless surface in its wake. This is the plane I will be measuring all others by. I’ve given you a link to Ron’s website so you can see the plane, but a picture just doesn’t show you what it can do. If you can make future Lie-Nielsen Handtool Events do so. Just seeing Ron’s plane in action will be worth your time.
