I have been trying to find one… as you may know lee valley is not producing them now.. just teasing us with them. I saw one on FB marketplace and sent a message.
The guy did not want to use it because it was to pretty. I wondered if he had an ugly wife….HAHHAHHAH (kidding)
Now, I just have one question… what is this thing used for? HA

Its used mainly for showing off on youtube, or for use as a block plane.

Used both at the L.V. store and ended up getting the DX as well, found it fit better in my hand?
LOL! still use my Brass L.N. 102 more!

According to LV website, and Rob Lee they are still showing in all 3 blades A2, O1, and PMV II. All just show TEMPORARILY unavailable. Are you hearing from someone they aren’t to be made at all? Generally LV will call those discontinued, and not have them in the catalog anymore.

SMP, I laughed….... Good one. :-)

I have the dubious honour of being the first user of this plane … before it was produced for sale. The story …

I have to say, I started with the little 100th anniv pocket plane of theirs. I build rc airplanes, and it is a cool, quality little plane… not the 10$ pieces of crap…. I hope I am done buying them… ha
I mostly use my grandpas reconditioned pieces… I’m very happy with them…
