Personally, I’m happy with an old flea market pane, that’s been as fine tuned as I can get it. The results I’m sure are close enough to the same as the “state of the art” planes, that I would be hard to tell the difference.
Now, the one thing I would like from Lee Valley, is free shipping on the other items that I have in my wish list.

You think they would honor it even to send me stuff over here? ;o)

(And, by the way, that seems to come to my point about the whole marketing shebang they set us up for).

Ah yes, the skill/tools relationship. I think one of the most difficult lessons to learn is that while better tools will improve some of the things you do, they will not make you better at what you do. I bought a starter set of golf clubs some 30 years ago, and they’re still good enough for my game.
