I was reading an article posted by Marc Spagnuolo on the merits of the low angle jack. I am already the happy owner of a Veritas model but noted Marc referring to a ” Blade #4. A 90-degree blade for scraping tasks. It essentially turns the jack plane into a scraping plane.” I had been toying with the thought of adding a scraper to my arsenal and immediately thought this might be a great fit. So a couple questions to those with the knowledge?

Does anybody have any experience with this blade that they would be willing to share?

Does anybody know if a LN blade fit in a Veritas plane?

Plane blades come in standard sizes, sometimes thickness can be a problem with older planes but the unanswered question why LN in a LV plane? From my experience recent LV irons come ready to use, LN do not. LV offers three different irons, LN one.

I agree, 80s are cheap and for most uses better.
