Well I received my Jack Plane from Veritas today and my DVD from Fine woodworking.

Now I have to figure out whata Jack Plane is used for. It does cut end grain very nice and also normal grain. Looking forward to some future Joinery with it.

You will have to review your plane Karson. I (as a minimum) would love to hear what you think of it.
