Topic tags/keywords: shooting plane veritas till holder question plan

Hey all,

On cyber Monday I scored a factory second shooting board plane from Lee Valley. 3rd year trying was the charm!

Anyway, I just modified my shooting board to fit it better and so far its working great. I was searching for ideas on how to store the plane while not in use. I have a plane till for my other bench planes, but this one is too long for it. I’ll need to build something specifically for it. I searched for ideas, but didn’t find much. Anybody make a hanger for this thing (or similar plane) and care to share the pics?

Thanks,
Brian

I don’t have the shooter plane but I shoot enough that I set up a mostly permanent shooting station in my shop. I carry my LAJ to it when needed but if I had the shooter it would just live there permanently.

Hanging that much mass would scare me. I have the LN 51 and it lives in the original crate it came in. I have hinges and handles for it, just haven’t gotten around to installing them. I’ve have stock drying to make a dedicated shooting/ mitre box station and the chute plane crate will be there.

Don’t have one and can’t help you, sorry. But I am curious/jealous about what the price on that thing was, if you don’t mind telling?

Congrats on the deal.

I have the LN # 9. The LN # 51 replaces the # 9. LN had a hard time producing a first quality plane with this model. They had to remake a lot more pieces because they couldn’t pass quality control. I paid $495.00 back then. If I decided to sell it I could easily get $2,500.00. I’m making ukuleles and it is great for joining the book joints.

It was about $80off. There are some pits in the casting on the top, black painted side. There must have been some bubbles in the casting on that side. It is functionally fine.

I did make something up to hang from my French cleat system. I’ll get some pics up after the glue s died and it’s in place. It’s basically a little holster at about a 25 degree angle.

Brian, my shooting plane lives on the shooting board. It is used often.
