Bevels and planes!

Tonight a short time in the workshop yielded the final bevels on the transom.  As mentioned in previous posts I love bevels, which also means I love planes.  I have a large collection left to me by my grandfather, many are working antiques, some are new.

My favorite, a Millers Falls No.9, which was a direct competitor to Stanley, it equals a Stanley No. 4.  It was manufactured from 1929 to 1976.

As a close second, while brand new, is a Stanley "Bailey" 6 1/4" low angle plane
