« Part 23: Luban 101 Handplane Part 24 of Shop Tools series no next part

I got lucky in an eBay auction and got a good deal on the Veritas Large Router Plane. I added extra cutters and was very interested in Veritas Medium Router Plane as it uses the same cutters as the Large Router Plane (excluding wide cutters). These planes have very high build quality and a pretty small foot print. .

With one of my LN small router planes for size comparison.

Can’t go wrong with that quality. I assume that we’ll see you making some shavings soon. Have fun with it.
I’ll have to get my miniature version out of its box and see what I can create.

Thanks for posting.

They are really an excelent product. one thing I do with the cutters for these are to make my own from Hex Keys, especially good for inlay and stringing work. no tempering required just grind, hone and polish.

I use the medium router before. No issues there at all for medium to light shavings

Hi wayne. I moved to Belgium in 2010, but still do not have functional workshops. I’ve done a few commercial projects, but I have not real time at the moment for wood working.

I returned to Finland earlier this year and picked up the last of my machines and 75% of my lumber stock, but 7 years in a dry, but unheated workshop rusted a lot of the machines and wood moisture is sky high. I plan to return return to Finland in the near future to collect the remaining lumber and items.

I really must post some photographs of what we have been doing here, including the build of a new workshop.

I hope you and the family are in good health. I will never forget my short visit to CA, where you and the guys showed me such great hospitality
