I am looking at purchasing a Lie Valley / Veritas Router Plane. The question that I have is should I get the open or closed throat?

Thanks!

The Lee Valley / Veritas router planes are all closed throat. When you want more visibility, you flip the blade holder around to the bullnose position.

Have your say...
