Finally after a long wait (been wanting this for years) I finally got one as my reward to myself for completing the Maloof lowback chair...

two blades included, a flat and a v-profile plus a sharpening attachment.

Review to follow once I get to use it extensively.

Timber ang aga nang pasko mo ah. Congrats on that heirloom piece! Para ka nang may Cadillac nang hand tools.

iirc Stanley no. 53 design yan di ba? nakikitako yan na laging gamit ni Paul Sellers. He calls it his "cordless router" haha.

Anong steel yung blades? PM11 something ba? wag naman sana A2, that alloy easily nicks its edge on our tropical hardwoods, once you hit knots. Pero super tigas ang A2 RC62 ata - but not as tough as high carbon steel. Kung O1 steel yung blades nyan, your router is good to go straight from the box!
Politics and corruption are not strange bedfellows, they glue together like two pieces of wood butted at the longrain which has been jointed smooth and true.

I see your avatar having a flat side Bedrock... 605 I presume.... Love my handtools a bit more than my power tools but will have a hard time not having both.

Oo nga sir there's something about owning quality handtools, lalo na yung mga legacy items di ba? - pwedeng ipamana (o ibenta kung maganda kita hehe).

Yes that's a pre WW2 bedrock on my Avatar (disclosure - it's not the pic of the one I used to own - sa net ko lang dinowload). Wala na kasi sa akin yung bedrock ko. Sinalya ko na dahil corrugated sole (#605C), the fluting leaves track marks on softwoods. maganda sana kung smooth bottom (mas vauable). That plane was in mint condition though, really beautiful! but I didn't quite like it for that reason. Kaya, pinabenta ko sa brod ko. Yung proceeds ibibili ko sana nang low-angle jack Stanley 62, but that's when I found out that those are very very expensive. Mas mahal pa kesa bnew LN! Halos doble ang bentahan.

Eh ayaw ko naman nang woodriver low jack - gawa sa China (Quiangsheng/Luban). Althgough that is quite highly rated performance-wise, yun nga - hindi sya legacy item. So, I settled for a #5-1/2 jack type 11 that needs restoration. Parating na yun, ipapa LBC seafreight ko dito next month together with my #7 jointer and a smoother.

btw, how do you sharpen/hone hand tools? Would you mind sharing?

There would be a thread for sharpening here. I use a veritas honing jig. In contrast I love my flatside corrugated 606 and 607's I never had issues with markings though I mostly work with hardwood naman.
