Default One Lie Nielsen is not enough

Well broke for the #4 smoothing plane and am very pleased with it. But I must say that's all for now folks, there are some other needs in the shop to be met first.

Ah yes, priorities. Nice pair of planes

They generally come to our local show and 2-3 years ago they had some overstock on their small block planes at a very nice reduced price ......... That plane is carefully wrapped and stored in its box between uses.

I do have to say that it did need a good honing to work well and that surprised me.

Well, Dave, after you've used it a bit it will need a lot more honing, so........

Phil - I was just surprised that out of the box that it wasn't better. It is now after a session with a very fine stone and a leather strop. As far as using it - it does as often as needed and unfortunately that could be more. But that's another story for another day

It is amazing the craftsmanship of those planes. It always strikes me that any good plane needs a tuneup before use. I guess the metal changes slightly after manufacturing. I just bought a small digital measuring device for setting blade depth. Just can't see well enough anymore to set the depth by eye. It was only $20.

Hi Tom

All iron castings move to an extent - partly the result of stresses being released by the machining process. L-N, Clifton and Veritas planes, though, seem to be well destressed and within tight tolerances as made - planes such as Wood River aren't as good and require a little work. A lot of the cheaper stuff is really dreadful. Nice things about the quality planes includes lack of blade chatter, edge-holding and sharpness of the iron and lack of slop in the adjuster mechanism but it's maybe worth remembering that any of the premium planes around today are better than what you could get 100 years ago

I don't understand why you'd need it when you can just do a test cut and adjust on a scrap. The transparency of the shaving is a pretty good indicator of setting I find.

Regards

Phil
