I've started sorting and dividing into makers. How do others collect these. Buy maker, by city?

Almost all of the past purchase was a group from makers in the mid 1800

I am absolutely not there yet.

Here's to hoping my wife got me the Whelan book for Christmas. Astragal press is only a half hour from me..

Love drooling over that photo, Don!
Grouping is easy for me...I only have 8 molding planes. Would be happy to take a dozen of those off your hands to help speed your work! LOL!

Which book? I have "the wooden plane, history form and function" on its way as well, but he wrote several good books.

"Making Traditional Wooden Planes" .. the one with instructions and plans for a ton of different types including two different plows, hollows & rounds, complex molders, side escapement rabbet, etc.

I've been slowly collecting  Auburn Tool company molding planes. If anybody has some for sale let me know.
I got to use my one pair of Hollow and rounds the other day and I liked it.
I have a bunch of others that need TLC.
This arrives tomorrow:

I hope it includes a list of molding planes.

Doesn't look very thick. Who reprinted it?

I have only a couple of woodies right now. I'm not very good at setting the irons but they are definitely fun to use.
