I wasn’t sure if this was the right place to post this, but I thought it might do… I have had the Low angle smoother since Christmas (love my wife) and have been quite pleased with it. The other day while taking it apart to sharpen, one of the retaining screws hit the shop floor never to be seen again. A quick and painlessly menu free call to Lie-Nielsen and the replacement screw was sent first class and arrived yesterday free of charge. Before this happened, I was seriously considering picking up one of the new Stanley Sweethearts low angle jack planes, but I started wondering who I would call when I lose a screw. I understand the tension between saving money and buying good tools, but as for a new jack plane, I’m gonna save a little more and by the Lie-Nielsen.
