I am considering purchasing the Veritas plow plane and am curious if those of you who own find you use it very often. Hand tools have a great deal of appeal due to the low noise level, no dust, etc. but do you find yourself preferring to use it for most of your “grooving” needs? My standard way of producing grooves has always been either a router or table saw but am looking for a method without all the noise and dust.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Bill

not exactly your question but you might have a look at this :

May be you could broaden your question to any plow plane as your question is not really brand specific.

I use mine for most of my grooving needs. But then, the alternative for me is a handsaw and chisel :)

Plow planes…... Cannot do mdf or plywood. So if you are going into solid wood. It will work fine. So here comes
the question. Are you willing to setup the plow plane when the router plane is next to you? :) But it is easy
and accurate when used correctly. Just use proper jigs to hold them down.
