This #7 was my most recent purchase. It’s one big plane! I’ve used it to flatten some boards that I had ran through my thickness planer. These boards were being laminated together so the surfaces needed to be very flat. You would think a board coming out of a power planer would be flat. A few passes with the #7 shows you that board is far from flat. It also easily removes the snipe you can get with a power planer.

The quality of this tool is outstanding. Lie-Nielsen also spends time to flatten the backs of their plane irons. It still took some time polish the back, but this initial flattening shorten that process.

I had an unfortunate event with my #7, you can read about here. The resulting support I received from Lie-Nielsen shows that they are a customer focus company. The plane and the company gets 5-Stars from me.

Thanks Mike… I have been considering a new jointer. I currently have a VERY old Stanley type-4 #8. It’s so old that it doesn’t have the adjustable frog. I really like the the bedrock design LN used with their planes.
