    After reading this review I need to start using block planes agin . It’s been way to long since I used one . I think I have a cheap Stanley one around some where .

    Always willing to learn .

    This thread had me looking on the lie Neilson website for like an hour last night making a whish list. I really want their #62 low angle jack plane. It’s a great multi functional plane.

    Thats what I am thinking of getting to flatten my workbench out, a veritas version though, as they sell in Canada and I don’t know of any lie nielsen dealers in Canada. I had to buy my lie nielsen’s online.

    Pretty much the same boat for getting LN’s. I don’t own any LN or Veritas planes (yet) but when you are comparing the two, both are at the pinnacle of tool manufacturing. The differences will be slight, perhaps one is more comfortable in your hand than another, but you won’t go wrong with either choice. Both are very good tools.

    I look at the tools online and dream sometimes then come back to reality and practice some more with my Stanleys. One day (sigh).

    Im not focusing on new Veritas and LN, except I am interested in the low angle bench planes, but am trying to replace almost all of my planes with better versions of what I have. I would like to replace my old jointer planes with better old Records or Sweetheart Stanleys and my 5-1/2 needs a new horn on the tote (I made one, but it sucks)

    I love the new planes but the old ones are a tenth of the price (except on eBay where people charge way too much)

    I got a notice today of an auction next week locally. Looks like there are a half dozen or so old planes of all sizes. Maybe I’ll get lucky!

    Hopefully you know what your are looking for and can get some good ones for cheap.

    #572581

    Some porn for you. I have vivid dreams of this. I would settle for the less expensive one though.

    I have seen that Bridge City one too. Star Wars meets Woodworking. Art meets Engineering. I could go on I expect, but can you tell I like it too?

    Now everyone is going to go out and buy mills and metal lathes and start a new hobby….making planes. Of course it will need a whole separate shop for itself.

    Nice post. I love using planes and this one is a very useful one indeed. Very versatile for so many quick cuts. A must-have, even if predominately a power tool user in my opinion.

    @austin,
    I would need to win a lottery to justify purchasing and Bridge City Plane. LOL

    Thats exactly why i want to buy one new plane, the low angle jack plane. The rest of my planes can be old. The jointer I want to buy will be an old one from some guy who buys and restores old hand planes. I’ll probably see him next week some time.
