New Veritas plane..

WOOHOO! My new plane came in yesterday. I'll have a full review coming up. For now here are some pics of my new toy… (ahem) tool… (^_^)

Ahh those crazy Canadians and their new-fangled recycling…. (I kid, I kid)


Here we go, the un-boxing.


I've heard Veritas called the "Apple computers of hand tools". I think they just need to master packaging and that will be an 100% true statement. Of course my of us woodworkers really couldn't care..


Thar she blows in all her glory.


Hmm, they actually packaged the plane with a faux plastic blade for shipping. It even has holes for the Norris adjuster. Great idea since that lets them secure the cap iron..


So that's it for now. I have looked through the existing reviews of this plane on Lumberjacks and decided that there is are a lot more details that you fellas might be interested in. So I'm doing a lot of testing to give you a good review. So far I can say that this is a DAMN GOOD plane. Stanley is really kidding themselves competing with this…

I think Lee-Valley explains it best on their website.

The Veritas low-angle jack plane is an exceptionally versatile plane. It is ideal for shooting miters, working end grain, and initial smoothing. With the optional high-angle blades, it is also the answer for working difficult grains, making it a well-rounded workhorse.

Don't throw away that plastic blade. It may come in handy around the beginning of April (if you know what I mean).

Heck you might could have used that paper for something - if they hadn't written all over it like that!
