Veritas Combination Plane Comparison #1: Introduction

09-11-2017 12:58 AM by Mosquito | 4 comments »

First off, I’d be remiss if I didn’t thank fellow LumberJock Dave Polaschek for inviting me to his shop making this direct comparison possible for us.

I have restored several planes in my pursuit of finding the right tool in hand tool woodworking. I have done several Stanleys of various vintage and quality, off brands, and long dead brands that change hands around the US. I have met the odd fellow in a parking lot to look at a few planes in a trunk and make him an offer he can’t refuse. I have not however had the joy, nay, privileged of restoring a Stanley Bedrock plane. Whelp, that changes now. I got my hands on a couple of old ...
