Topic tags/keywords: question plane

Hello,

I’m from Europe and I’m visiting Denver in the next week. I think it’s a good opportunity to buy some woodworking tools cheaper then in Europe.

As I’m leaving States on Wednesday, It’s quite risky to order it online. So I wonder if there is a local shop, where I could buy Veritas skew rabbet plane for right handed?

Michal, Veritas is manufactured by Lee Valley. You might contact them to be certain, but I think they only have retail outlets in Canada. HTH

Yes, I’ve checked it on Lee Valley site:
http://www.leevalley.com/us/home/Stores.aspx

And estimated delivery time to Colorado is 6-7 business days.

I don’t think that anyone but Lee Valley sells their planes in North America (on the list Manitario provided most offer pretty much the same range of products – saws, the honing guide, a few odds and ends but I couldn’t find any planes). You’re probably out of luck this close to the date, although you could give them a call tomorrow and see if you can pay extra to get expedited shipping.

I live in Texas but had to order my Veritas skew rabbet plane online. Unless you go to Canada to a Lee Valley store, as far as I know, online is your only option for planes. You can buy smaller Veritas items at Woodcraft stores, like a honing guide or hand saw. Denver has a Woodcraft.

You’ll like it if you really want a dedicated rabbet plane.

There is a Woodcraft in Denver. While they will not have the Veritas skew plane, many Woodcraft stores carry some veritas saws and marking tools. They will also have a decent collection of chisels and other tools, and their own WoodRiver planes are generally considered good for the money, if not quite as polished and precise as Veritas.

So check it out and you may be able to save some money on other things you need.
