I got the Lee Valley/Veritas medium shoulder plane last December for a mother-in-law project and have used it quite a bit since then. I like it a lot—it’s certainly my most-used plane currently. The only thing I’m still not sure about (bear in mind this is 7 months later, so maybe it just isn’t really that big a deal to me) is the adjustable knob on the upper back side that swings 180 degrees to fit the web of your hand while using it. It’s handy, but seems too small to really bear down on, so I mostly just tighten my grip if the going gets tough. Otherwise, fit and finish are superb and I would certainly buy it again. Wish I could say that about all my hand tools :) Good luck.
