I would say dead square. Mine is and many others. Send a mail back to LV to change it.

It should be plenty square for a shooting board. Call Lee Valley, their CS is excellent. I had a tiny dent in a new router plane knob when it arrived. It didn’t affect the use, just bugged me because I expected a perfect knob after spending that kind of money. I called them up, wasn’t a jerk about it, just explained what the knob looked like and they were apologetic and sent me a new knob free of charge.

Great company, if you measure it out of square, tell them. They’ll replace it.

Thanks, guys. I’m going to measure it and then give Veritas a call.

I know they are great to work with. I bought a router plane from them and it came with 2 vshaped blades instead of v shaped and strait edge blades. Called them and told me to keep the extra and they sent me a new strait edge blade within a day.

Have your say...
