Lie Neilson planes are said to be .0005” flat. They do work very well.
A plane set on a flat surface, tested with a thin strip of rice paper-.001” thick
If the paper can be pulled out at any point along the length of the plane-it is warped twice the tolerance of a LN plane, at least.
I do not own LN planes, but have tried them. I have not found an old plane that would pass that test, or work as well until corrected.
