Outside my budget, so I can't even give it room for a thought.

I think it is a neat concept. Definitely way outside my budget. It would be an interesting idea to base a homemade plane on.

The Damn Thing better make me coffee in the morning for that kind of price.

Great idea, but you could make one about the same price. And........ I am saying buy the material, buy the mini metal lathe and have at it. In the end, you would have a artsy psycho plane AND ........ a mini lathe ............. :p;):cool:

I expect the why is because there are people who will buy them. Those are the people who have the immaculate shops that have never had even a single mote of sawdust in them. All the tools are exactly as they were when they came out of their packages when the widow has to sell them. ;)

Ah! No wonder I didn't know WHY. Definitely not my shop. :eek:

Those things seem strictly for the collector/investor market. For sure not for the garage out back crowd.... like me.

I wasn't familiar with Bridge City Tools, but on a recent trip to Klingspor, they had a small display of various Bridge City Tools...miter gauges, bevel gauges, mini squares, etc. The tools caught my eye because they all had a very distinctive look (they were also in a small free standing locked case). While I was curious, after seeing the prices I understood the need for the case...I looked but wasn't tempted to buy.

If you read the bio of the founder, John Economaki, a lot their design and price makes sense. I will admit, from time to time I like to use my more 'fancy' tools just so I can feel 'fancy' about the work I am doing.

However, the price is just ridiculous for what they are now offering. Especially since the company has been sold off.

At the AAW symposium in July, Bridge City had a drawing for one of their tools. I actually won - it was a 6 inch fancy ruler. It will be the only BC tool I will own

that was a good read. I like his concept about them being like fine furniture, but there is probably no way i would be able to force my self to use one, unless i used it to make the display box for it.
