New shoulder plane from the Bridge City Tools. It doesn't have a tradition look but it's a beauty and well designed tool. The body is milled from brass with adjustable mouth, the iron is A2 tool steel. Retail for $589, not a mass produced plane. Detail here

This plane is constructed with interesting components. The sides are using think brass, the sole is wood, the iron is secured with a bailey type frog and it has the Lingum Vitage? handle and tote. It's a good design becasue the wood sole slide easy against the wood, the frog for easy adjusting and the brass for rust free.

Not to be confused this with a wireless USB mouse. It is actually a hand plane. It has steel sole and walnut burl infill made by Rob Brophy. Note he also made a smaller version of the Norris A6 infill plane.
