Yes I am quite happy with it.
With this one and a #82 on my bench, I feel I can take care of all type of situations.

Nice! Way to repurpose a tired tool into one you can use more frequently!

Sure looks WAY nicer than the Veritas version I have! I thinks I may have to re-purpose the blade from mine as never liked the feel of the plastic.

Thank you Andre.

I am with you, the only plastic handled tool I have above my workbench is the Veritas marking knife, and as much I like this tool, my plan is to turn a handle for it one day.

That is lovely! Half the fun of tools is when they look and feel nice.

Thank you 987Ron, that’s kind of you! I must confess I got lousily inspired by a top end plane maker.

Thanks EllenWoodHead and bondogaposis, on top of that it always feels good to make something out of scrap!

Great idea, I have a few planes that I got that are quite frankly garbage but they were free. This can beath some new life into their parts. Nice job!

Very nice. I have the Veritas steel and cast one. It’s an awesome little plane too but a little more money than yours. :)
