I’ve got LN, veritas and vintage. LN, veritas seem to work right out of the box with just a little fussing. Vintage takes a little fussing unless you get it pre-tuned from several LJ’s who do it. Side by side a well tuned vintage works the same and cost a lot less.

I’ve got a LN #62. Its a great plane, I just wish I’d got the #164. If I didn’t have a good #4 or #604, that would be first. My recommendation is a good vintage #4.
