278544 Frank Filippone <bmwred735i@g...> 2024‑06‑19 Moulding planes......
It is the early 18th century and everyone making planes makes them the same
length.� Can anyone explain how this could happen? ( ditto 19th century)

There was no one nor a guild in the USA at least,� to establish a standard, and
yet they are very much the same size......

How did this happen?� What forces were in play?
