I had been looking for a small shoulder/bullnose plane back in the late 70's and looked around at many garage sales and flea markets, but never saw one. I broke down and purchased new a Stanley No, 90 that cost then around $75. I think they are over $100 now. It was expensive to me then, but I found out how fine this little plane really was. It's been made since 1898 and a favorite among my specialty planes. Very easy to use and very exact. The top comes off to make it into a chisel plane. It's only 4 1/2" long and a 1" wide iron. It's a heavy little sucker for its small size, and fits the hand comfortably. If anyone here has one or can comment on this little jewel I'd like to hear about it.
