I still don’t have them
I wish I could say how great they are, but sadly I haven’t heard anything since I was told they cleared customs a week ago. I don’t the HNT Gordon tools to be really superior pieces of kit, but they do take an incredibly long time to arrive and the communication from the courier could be better. I am in limbo and not sure whom I should contact about the delay.
They are really good planes I love the quality I'm still learning but I like it I buy a few of those planes and the vice this amazing
Snipe bill planes
I brought a pair of snipe bill planes from HNT, and they work perfectly, they have been beautifully made and feel great in the hand.
Happy Customer in USA
Superb fit and finish. Fast delivery with great tracking; took about 1 week to the Philadelphia area. These Snipe Bill Planes are a pleasure to use. I think Side rabbets with dovetail fence are next!
It's Great to use all your planes . I've told you before......
