Has anyone used these ?
They are listed at Lee Valley tools…..$47 each
I do a lot of work with reclaimed lumber, I have ground the blades contoured on 2 different planes (One a handyman) second (defiance).
I then plane diagonally across the board to the end… a rippled effect I want.
Anybody else do things like this

I just use a converted #5, does what i need it to do. if i happen across a vintage scrub plane i may pick it up but see no reason to invest in a brand new one.

Tugboater78. Thats what I am doing. I have LOTS of planes, I used the cheaper ones to try out the different sharpening on the irons. They work…..irons may not hold edge as long !
