I’ve been using a heavily cambered #5 as a scrub. It was ok. I looked for a 40-1/2 on eBay for awhile but got tired of waiting for a deal so I got the LN version.

I’ve been happy with it so far. I kinda prefer it to a bench plane with a cambered iron.

Can you elaborate on why? I’ve been thinking about getting a scrub plane myself, but currently I generally use a heavy camber on a wooden jack plane

A LN Scrub plane? You probably drink tea with your pinky extended…big timer.

Seriously, looks pretty sweet though.

A LN anything is nice.
Still waiting for the lottery hit to try one out.
I have a LN 60 1/2 and it is very nice.

mos, smaller footprint and a lot less iron to sharpen. Really gets into the crevices. I just find it to work a lot faster for me.

Shane, I smell my own farts I’m so smug :)

It is also a lot lighter. If you’re really going to town hogging off wood that helps over time. (I have one also)

Have your say...
