    It seems to me that the whole premise of "Political Correctness," however well-intentioned it may be, runs the danger of uniform mediocrity becoming the norm.

    Wood?
    If you don't take pride in your work, life get's pretty boring.

    Rule of thumb is if you don’t know what tool to buy next, then you probably don’t need it yet.

    Check out the Lie Nielsen video on it. It is working great on this pine. I have 12 of them that I am flattening and it goes fast without any tearout.

    I thought it was Angel Hair. Who wood a thought differently?

    Either the demonstrator is a lot better than the other people that I have seen demonstrate Lei Nielsen planes or this particular plane is a lot easier for installing and adjusting the iron. It would be interesting to know which.

    From what I had seen and done, the Nielsen was much slower and more difficult to remove, replace, and adjust the iron correctly than the Lee Valley Veritas planes. Glenn and I have several Veritas planes; not because we thought Nielsen planes were poor quality, but because of the rapidity, ease and accuracy of iron changes and adjustments with the Veritas.

    Enjoy,
