Has anyone used or do you own this Veritas® Scraping Plane Insert?

If so would you please comment. I’ve got a $40.00 gift card for Lee Valley and it’s burning a hole in my pocket. 8^))

You might ask Alf. She has reviewed most of LV’s planes for the
British woodworking forums. Send her a PM.

Someone was making a high end version of this. I belive they were designed for a #7.

I have one of these. It is just OK. If you do not have a some experience with scrapers and scraper planes, I am not sure I would recommend it. I much prefer my #112 Stanley or the wooden scraper planes that I made in the shop. I have not published photos of my full size scraper planes, but I have pics of a couple of mini scaper planes here...

I also find that adding a wooden sole to a #80, with a relief behind the scraper blade improves performance a lot.

Here is a photo of the #112 I picked up last Friday. It did not have a blade when I got it. So I ordered a hock blade for it.

I used the largest scraper from this set as a replacement for my #112. I just had to trim a little off the width to make it fit. I prefer a thinner blade for scraper blades because I find that the small amount of flexibility tends to eliminate chatter. I also do not use a 45 degree bevel, but rather a squared edge just like a regular card scraper. I find it less aggressive and since I use my #112 closer to final finish, I find it appropriate.

My 2 cents worth.

Great tip Brian. Also less expensive.
