I could use many words to drum-roll these beauties. Simply put - this is a prime example of what happens when you ask Patrick Leach 'if he has any Sandusky planes laying around'. Welcome down the rabbit-hole, kiddies.

Essentially, 92s and 93s were the same set offered in Straight vs. Skew; The larger boys were in thier own model number (94) and were not offerred in Skew. Not to say STC never made a set for custom orders but I've not seen a larger Skew yet.
|The whole enchilada. Finish on the smaller sets is slightly more worn; the larger of the pairs are near mint with original finish.|

Who would have known that a gap of a few millimeters could have such a profound effect on a mans soul? During a quiet night on the porch, sometimes I think I can hear the irons keening wail as it looks to come home. The original CAS, whoever you were - thanks for keeping these planes so prime for us.
