Block Plane Wheels
The Original Designer of this tool, John Bokstrom
Do you know that half the energy you use in planing is
wasted? That’s right—it’s wasted just holding the plane
level. I didn’t realize this until I had developed my leveler
and used it for a few hours. And though planing requires
only half the effort--the real benefit is that the plane is
always level with the planing form, and the accuracy of the splines is thus greatly improved. It is even possible to make a full pass with the hand held flat and only the heel on the handle to provide the push. This might be a show-off move but it demonstrates that you don’t waste energy holding the plane level.
Also, full length shavings, even from butt strips, become commonplace.
This right up is from "Best of the Planing Form" and I believe originally written by
John Bokstrom himself.

Mr. Bokstrom for allowing me to build his outstanding tool. JW
