Brett, it’s a great little plane; excels at rebates, but does little else, of course. The trick is to get the nicker aligned with the blade edge; and it can be tricky since there’s no cam on the lever cap. I’ve got a Sweetheart era one and a newer one. The Sweetheart is clearly superior. I’ve never used the duplex feature.
I usually don’t like veritas, but I really like their rebate:,230,41182,48945
At $240, it’s about $200 more expensive than the #78, though, lol. But you get the skew.
