Here's one I'm pondering. Which new plane to buy?
Admittedly, I am a planeaholic. I've got 3-8 Stanleys, [ok, one's a Union and one's a Record] and a 4 1/2, all nicely fettled, some with LV or LN blades, and most work very nicely. I also have a LN 9 1/2 and a low angle 102 [or 103 -whichever is the LA].
So I'm thinking about a LN 4 1/2, perhaps a 4, or a LV LA jack 62 1/2 with a 25 and a 38 degree bevel blade. I figure they could all be had for about the same. Found a used LN 4 1/2 for about $250. Or maybe I should just ignore my addiction and wait for this foul urge to pass.
It seems to me that the esthetics of the LN are nicer, but that given what I already have the LV LA jack will add more to what I can do. [BTW This is all Mr. Clardy's fault as his purchase of three LN 4 1/2s got me going on this kick.]
Anyway, I'm looking for your thoughts....Thanks in advance,
