Don't want him to be mistaken for a hillbilly 'musician' like Brooks and/or Dung.

I’m George Strait all the way….

We haven't done Christmas yet because we were in Texas to give brakes to my sisters caregivers. Then she passed.

However, before she passed we took Joyce, a caregivers, off for a break. This is her with my wife and me in a hot tub! It was a good gift for me!

Thx-Ace

Yeah a good friend bought this for me because he wanted a good friend to share in his passion. He has an A model and a 140. 

 We got it back home from about 1400 miles away wouldn't start, no compression, no spark. But otherwise good shape. Got spark finally and was about to pull the head bit checked valve clearance, guess what NO Clearance!! Adjusted the valves, shot a Lil carb cleaner in the carb ( tank was off) she sputtered! Put the tank back on and she fired right off! Was down for over 6 years before I got it. Now for the restore!

Just received this yesterday from a friend i didnt see over Christmas. He said he believes its 1890s.. it will receive a full resto and be put back into use. It was sold to him as a coffin plane but without the pronounced angles i dont think it qualifies.

That is kul, but what is a coffin plane, aside from the name is it a specialist plane, reason I ask is the late 30s cord had a model that was nicknamed the coffin nose for exactly that reason, it looked like a coffin.

Well to some a coffin plane is just a plane kinda shaped like a coffin...but a true coffin plane looks and is angled just like an old pine coffin...its shape can literally be transferred and upsized to build a real coffin...the angles of the plane body are used to guide your build.

I have a strange fascination with someday building affordable or free spruce coffins.. i have a saw mill and produce most of my own lumber and it just hit me one day to give back even if its in somebodys end..

Is it okay to laugh at this? 😄

I know you are a good dude and I know that was a genuine statement from the heart. But my inner twelve year is still laughing!

That looks like a mighty big block plane, but perhaps that is perspective?

Id say its ok to laugh...i hope everyone has a blast on my last day. I think most people are too stuffy when it comes to humor, if its funny its funny.

The plane is about 9 long 3 high and 3 wide. It would be common in a cabinet or furnture shop.
