Documenting the addition of another plane to the tool box. This one is a #140 Rabbet and block plane . They are pretty cool planes. One side of the plane can be removed for doing rabbet work on things like tenons. With the side on it can be used like a normal block plane.
I’ve been looking for the right one for a while and also have been torn as to if I should get the Lie-Nielsen or stick with an old Stanley. This one is in pretty nice shape and it was about 1/3 the cost of the Lie-Nielsen. I would be curious to know how much of an improvement the fence is that Lie-Nielson added if someone has one.
