  1. I worked for a landscape contractor a couple of summers when I was in college. The mechanic who worked on the trucks and tractors took a liking to me. One day, he pulled me over to his shop and was showing me his wrenches and differences between them. He said, “Don’t ever buy cheap tools — they won’t work well and you’ll just end up frustrated and having to replace them.”

    That stuck with me, mostly. But it seems every single time that I bought a cheap tool, it didn’t work well, I ended up frustrated and replaced it.

    As soon as Chuck mentioned Kunz, that came to mind.

    1. Keith,

      Unfortunately, Kunz was the only one making scraper planes at the time. And, as I recall, on my apprentice salary it wasn’t anything like “cheap.”
