Default What are the reasons so few modern planes measure up to the old one?

Ok, ok, I give. Allt hese answers make quite a bit of sense,
especially now that I understand that these tools were in the same mold
as the finer planes today. And they lasted this long only because they
were workers and built with quality materials and great craftsmanship.


Andy: Thanks for the book suggestion. That seems like a good read.
