I’m looking to pick up a couple of hand planes for my garage shop, I feel so incomplete without even having one..
I’ll mostly be using them for small projects Blanket chests, small boxes, etc for the time being. M&T work as well.
I like to know what you guys would recommend that I start off with. I’m thinking that a good starting set for be would be:
Lie-Nielsen : Low angle jack plane, Low angle Adj block plane & Medium shoulder plane
Boy, I sure like the looks of that Veritas NX60 though..
At the moment my shop consists of :
Dewalt 735 Planer
Rikon 10-325 deluxe Bandsaw
Ridgid : Drill press, Oscillating Edge/Belt Spindle Sander and Ridgid 6 1/2” jointer
Bosch table saw, Miter saw I need them portable for jobsites.. love to have the room for a nice PM
Festool Domino 500
dewalt scroll saw
Freud router table system w/ 3 1/4hp..
and of course not including all my power hand tools,, routers, sanders, nail guns, saw’s, etc etc etc..
I’m embarrassed to say that I don’t own any Hand planes.. Well. except a couple of pretty rusted up Stanley that my Grandfather gave me back in the day… Cheapies..
So I ask for you guys to please help me in decision on what would be best to get me started…
So I can use it on the 200BF of Black Cherry I just acquired.
