I find lots of uses for mine. I am thinking of getting the inlay tool for it as well.

Congrats on the purchase!
I’ve been looking too for Stanley 71 router plane on ebay. I agree the prices are really high.
I’ve about come to you exact same conclusion and spend $200 on the Veritas version with a fence. Also you get the jig for sharpening as well, right?

If im not mistaken doesn’t the Stanley 71 cutters work in it also?

IIRC, the Veritas kit comes with the fence, two cutters and the sharpening jig.

Yes the cutters are the same. I bought the kit which includes the fence for i believe 169.00. I’d much rather have the veritas than an old stanley. Really their made just alike but with the veritas your getting a new router other than a used one that could be warped or possibly not flat. Glad I looked at the lee valley site and saw the price.

The prices of the old Stanley’s has gone thru the roof over the last year or so. The old cutters aren’t cheap either on eBay.

Have your say...
