    Post ECE or Ecemmerich Planes Tools and parts

    This is a German company that makes wooden hand planes and other wood working tools.
    The reason for this post is : I own a 703p Jack plane that needed a chip-breaker.
    The original chip-breaker was adjusted by the prior owner and me
    but would not sit flat on the blade .
    Trying to find a replacement was difficult.

    Looking at a 2014 May / June FW magazine , there was an ad
    for ECE planes.
    Lo and behold there is a US rep for ECE and he had the chip breaker I need.
    He can be reached @
    David Warren Direct
    E. C. Emmerich, U.S. Factory Representative 1/800-724-7758
    He is a woodworker and a factory rep.

    https://ecemmerich.de/en/portfolio/planes/ is the URL for ECE tools in German and English.

    ECE has a way more comprehensive selection
    than I realized.

    Most certainly agree with that !!! However , that's one of the places I started my search at.
    They did not have the chipbreaker in stock , but went overboard with customer service in trying
    to find it. Quoted that they could order it from Germany but it would the several months.

    Just found this tidbit about ECE planes (April 2018). No mention of $USD to buy it or their other planes.

    Jeff - Thanks for the article.

    Check some of them out at Highland woodworker in Atlanta, search under ECE or check the hand plane lineup.
    There are a few others in the US that as carry them as well.
    I'll post more when I get a price list from Mr Warren.

    They are pricey but perform beautifully smooth. Wood on Wood.
