For the manner in which men live is so different from the way in which they ought to live, that he who leaves the common course for that which he ought to follow will find that it leads him to ruin rather than safety.

A name I've never heard

While poking around today I found a neat old plane iron by a maker that I've never heard of before. It's a laminated blade with a W. Ash & Co chip breaker. The blade is from Wm. Bingley. If anyone that reads here happens to know anything about Wm. Bingley, please drop me a line! I'd like to put the history to the tool. My first guess is English, but that is just a guess.

Update: I also posted this at Sawmill Creek. Here's the thread, lots of good info here.
