In general their planes are a generation newer than Spiers or Mathieson and have seen less wear and are simply not worn out. In addition, with the adjuster, Norris realized that there was no business trying to compete with Stanley type planes or wooden planes as Spiers tried too, and Norris’s efforts were spent going higher and higher end.
