Call me a craftsman, artisan, or artistic, and I will accept that. Call me an artist and you will likely get a quite rude comment in return. I am not a @#$%ing artist.

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Tom the Veritas medium shoulder plane might cost about 3 times as much as the Taytools plane but that is because it is superior in many ways. If you plan on using it very much and can afford the extra cost I'd buy the Veritas. If it is going to be an occasional use tool then I think I would buy a blade from Veritas and make one like Herb made or a similar design.

@Stick486 , none yet. I am inclined to save up and as you and @MEBCWD suggest get the Veritas plane.

The world of planes is vastly more complex (and expensive) than I had ever imagined.

Cheap planes often have a number of issues with them such as the sole not being flat, sides not square to the sole, bed not flat causing blade chatter, adjustment mechanism not working smoothly enough to allow fine adjustment, and chip breaker not fitting properly to blade. All those issues are taken care of with Veritas and Lie Neilsen. Cliftons I'm not familiar with.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

@TWheels ...

side thought...
of all those planes I listed it was the Veritas that melded to my hand and became and extension...
it wasn't something I need to ''hold'' on or adapt to..
nor was it something that need work to make it work...
I belong to the ready to go crowd...
why buy something that you have to spend more time/energy/money on to get it to do something..

back to the tangible/intangible cost thing...

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Stick....
