Don. that Sargent is indeed a nice looking plane, great save on that thing. It looks great and looks like it performs the same.
Al, you’re the second to give a nod to the 18 so I’ll check around for one. I do like the 60 series planes though, and the 220. The 9 1/2 is a nice looking one too…..damn, here I go again.
Uh, dhazelton, are you talking about the adjustment knob and lever for the throat??
And, I know about the quality and everything of the Veritas and LN planes (well, I’ve heard about the LN stuff, I’ll never be able to afford one) but you know, I don’t know why everyone HAS to have them for them to think they have a good block plane. I mean, our fathers and grandfathers made all kinds of nice stuff with stanley and millers falls and whatever else was out there before the LV and LN’s came along didn’t they? Some of them may indeed be junk, especially the newer stuff but for an everyday beater I think they work just fine. At least that has been my experience.
I am going to buy a low angle veritas for school but thats because that is what is on the tool list (also because I always want some new “good” tools but you can bet I am taking my stanleys too because I am real comfortable using them.
