Lie-Nielsen #62 low angle jack plane

Lie-Nielsen #62 low angle jack plane

When I first got this plane, I posted this comment on the “Hand Plane of your dreams” Thread. Since then I’ve used the plane a few time. My thoughts toward this plane remain the same. Its a great plane right out of the box. I have sharpened it once. The back of the iron was perfectly flat right from the get-go. All I had to do was sharpen. My expectation óf needing to flatten the iron was unfounded. The thick blade makes sharpening a breeze. I am good enough to sharpen...

Why did it take so long?

Why did it take so long?

05-20-2009 04:32 AM by JuniorJoiner | 12 comments »

I have wanted one of these saws since I first laid eyes on one. Rob Cosman had a set of these in his toolkit , and I first got to handle one about 4 years ago. The problem was that rob’s was kinked. so I didn’t get to use it. My new Lie-Nielsen panel saw arrived today, so the first thing i did was rip open the packaging and put it through it’s paces.I may not be extremely accomplished as a furniture maker, but i have done my share of construction with hand tools, and feel...

One Amazing Jointer

This #7 was my most recent purchase. It’s one big plane! I’ve used it to flatten some boards that I had ran through my thickness planer. These boards were being laminated together so the surfaces needed to be very flat. You would think a board coming out of a power planer would be flat. A few passes with the #7 shows you that board is far from flat. It also easily removes the snipe you can get with a power planer. The quality of this tool is outstanding. Lie-Nielsen also...

A little disappointed with Lie-Nielson an update

A little disappointed with Lie-Nielson an update

I did receive the chisels in January and have been using them now for about a year and could not be more happy with them. When I got them they were very sharp right out of the box, but I lapped the backs and sharpened them anyway. The backs were very flat and it did not take many passes over the stones to have a mirror finish on them. The two larger chisels both had a small nick on the bevel the same distance from the edge. It took a little honing to get them out as these are very hard steel....

Balance, precision, handling, control...  Sounds like a sports car? It's a chisel!

Well, not just any chisel, a Lie-Nielson bevel edge socket chisel! Looking through the offerings at my local Woodcraft one evening, I spotted a beautiful set of chisels in a leather roll. Asking the salesman to open the case, I had a closer inspection. The feel was perfect, no uncomfortable bandings and they balance so well. The roll had 5 chisels in the set, with the smallest being 1/8”. Considering I do a considerable about of 1/8” inlay, I really liked these. I was taken aback ...

I have had a set of the Lie-Nielsen Joinery floats for a few months now, and unbelievably i have even found uses for them.When i first saw these tools advertised on their site, I actually called my wife over , and showed her. Not from amazement or anything like that, but to tell her to never get them for me. Apparently she pays as much attention as i would to her new shoes, because just short weeks later they arrived. Smiling and being thankful, I put them all in the tool roll, and tossed ...

Lie-Nielsen Shoot Board Plane

Lie-Nielsen Shoot Board Plane

03-16-2013 05:29 PM by paratrooper34 | 25 comments »

This is a second review on LJs for this plane. I am going to go through receiving the plane, unpacking it, setting it up, and putting it to use. As a hand tool worker, I have become very dependent on my shooting board for many uses. It excels at cleaning up pieces that have been crosscut to get them square and smooth. I also use it for precise length sizing for multiple pieces. So it is in use on every project. That alone convinced me to purchase this plane. I ordered the plane by ...

Lie-Nielsen 15ppi Rip Carcass Saw

Lie-Nielsen 15ppi Rip Carcass Saw

03-25-2013 02:28 PM by carguy460 | 12 comments »

For over a year I’ve been searching for a few decent backsaws I could use for dovetails, tenons, etc. I quickly found that the vintage route was not going to turn anything up as quickly as I wanted, so I figured I would see about buying my first brand new woodworking tool. After quite a bit of research, I settled on Lie-Nielsen. I seriously contemplated the Veritas saws as they seemed to have good reviews and were half the price, but I just couldn’t get past the look of the saw...

Is it worth $500?

Is it worth $500?

08-23-2011 07:03 PM by Jorge G. | 14 comments »

It all depends. Here is my philosophy for buying tools, if I say to myself “Gee it would be nice to have XXXXX tool so I could make this operation easier” 3 times, then I buy the tool. I do it this way because I know that I will be using the tool, and it makes my woodworking easier. Shooting a board is one of those operations that seem simple enough, just make a shooting board and shave the end grain with a plane. THe problems comes with the execution. At least for me. I tried ...
