New In The Shop – Herrli Scraping Plane

Even as I continue the process of winnowing the barn contents, including (especially?) surplus tools, I am strategically improving my tool holdings.  This is one of those instances.

At last summer’s SAPFM Mid-Year one of the presenters was plane maker and one of my favorite guys Tod Herrli.  I never fail to learn something mighty useful from his presentations, but this year I was able to come away with something extra.  He’d brought a few planes with him and I bought this slightly diminutive scraper plane.  It’s been used several times since I got back home.


I’ve got a pair of snipes bill planes on order from him, to be made in some spectacular black cherry I delivered to him.
