I am sooo excited right now, I just received my first real hand plane, a Lie-Nielsen Low angle block plane! I have been saving up for this for weeks now, and it has been worth it. I figured for being my first, I would start off with a non-adjustable mouth, and then when I can afford/need one I will get the Lee Valley premiums. This plane is a beauty, the only thing I wish Lie Nielsen did was stamp a date on when the tool was manufactured, that way, when I pass it onto my kids, they’ll know how old it is. Anyways, I have yet to give this baby a test drive, but hopefully within the next week (I’m graduating and so will be out of the shop for awhile) I will be able to post a full review on how these puppies handle.
Take care everyone!
Heres some links to flickr with some photos of it.
Oh, and if anyone can shoot me some tips on how to post pics that are visible to everyone without going to another site that would be great.
