Arrow Shoulder Plane

In the market for a New/First shoulder plane. Was looking at the Woodcraft 7.75 in. Shoulder Chisel Plane as well as the No. 92 Sweetheart.

Never owned one so this would be my first. I like the Nielsen and such but there a lil pricey. I know you get what u pay for but just curious to the other alternatives out there.

Looking to get into more MT joints and shoulder plane is a must have..

Thanks

If you like your freedom...Thank a Vet!!

Been doing it too long to be doing it wrong!!

I have a Wood River #5 plane and like it very much. Wood River is sold by Woodcraft. I am not a hand plane person but I have found I use it more than I thought. I also have a block plane. It's a 60 1/2 Stanley. While Wood River doesn't make the best planes I think they are a bargain for the money.

Measure once cut twice and it's still to short.

I have the Stanley Sweetheart #92 and love it. IIRC it was around $60.

The Cadillac's and Lincoln`s of hand planes are made by Veritas and Lee Neilson but they charge Cadillac and Lincoln prices for them too.

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.

Still debating lol

Hmmm.....I read the scathing reviews that Stick posted. I must've gotten lucky. My Sweetheart doesn't suffer from the maladies described.
