I used this plane for the first time today and I was very impressed. It is a big step up from the other planes I
have been using. It has good heft to it and all of the parts were machined nice and didn’t requiure any filing.
The sole was dead flat and the iron was thick and the back flat. I spent 5 minutes honing the iron to an 8000
grit water stone and took fine shavings in maple, walnut and cherry. I have never used a Lie-neilsen, Clifton or
Veritas but with the way this performed I’m not sure you need to spend the extra money on one of those.
Anyone who has used both and can tell me the differences i would appreciate your knowledge. Jerry O
