Today I opened my mailbox and my eyes were alighted with excitement. My “new to me” Veritas low angle block plane had just arrived. My late night browsing of the Woodnet Swap and Sell forum had really paid off. I’ll let you know how much I paid in the review.

Boy ain’t she pretty. :) Just a few small specks of rust on the sole, but no pitting. I’ll get her tuned up this weekend and put her through her paces. However, just inspecting the individual parts tells me that this is going to be a day and night like difference when compared to the Stanley Sweetheart.

As you can see here, I also got several accessories with this tool. I’ll cover those in the review as well.

I do have this beautiful plane. I like tke low-angle & bevel up style/concept. I love the adjustment mechanism, large lever cap wheel and tall front knob (optional accessory). It works like a champ out of box.
Congratulation Rick! I would say your instinct on this plane will never go wrong.

I’ve had this for a long time and it is my Go-To handplane for quick fixes. You will love this tool. They do a great job. Congrats!
