I recently picked up the veritas jointer fence from lee valley to use with my low angle jack plane to joint some 6/4 walnut for my wifes desk.
I am fairly new to hand tools and with that I am not the steadiest when prepping boards edges yet.
This fence changed that. I was able to joint the entire 7 foot length of my boards smoothly and nice and square.
The instructions for this tool are very clear and explain what to do if your planes wings aren’t square to the sole.
Thankfully mine is so that made setup even easier.
The fence itself holds fairly well to the plane using the rare earth magnets embedded in it. and the stop holds its against the front of your plane rather well.
I found personally that about 2 fingers on the fence was enough to hold it tight against the board and still square with the plane as well.
all in all a very nicely designed add on for anyone wanting to joint boards to long for a shooting board.
