  1. I am in the market of purchasing my first hand plane. I have decided that the Veritas low angle jack is a good start for where i am in my woodworking. Knowing that, i have to understand the benefits of the different materials that make up the plane itself as well as the blades. I can buy the plane and blades constructed with A2, O1, or PM-V11, but i am unsure of what the better material is. Any insihgt would be greatly appreciated!
  2. The information given here was very enlightening. Unfortunately, with one question answered, another takes it's place. Between the A2, O1 and PM-V11, what are the advantages of each? Is the better plane made with PM-V11, or does that primarily go for the blades themselves?
  3. I started getting into woodworking by making a few butcher block table tops and, in my experience, letting the glue set overnight has the best possible outcome.
  4. Is it possible to use a LN blade with the Stanley 62?
  5. The Stanley 62 can be purchased through Rockler for $159.99. That price is what brought my question to mind. When compared to the Lie-Nielson counterpart, it is certainly less expensive, but will it be a smart buy?
  6. I recently viewed Marc Spagnuolo's "Low-angle Jack Plane: The Only Handplane You Need?" and found the content extremely interesting. As a novice in woodworking, still accumulating the tools i want and/or need, i had a particular question. The Lie-Nielson low angle jack that Marc reviews is modeled after it's Stanley predecessor. With that being said, would the purchase of the Stanley model 62 be out of the question, or is the Lie-Nielson, or Veritas for that matter, the better buy. Now, i am worried about expense, but i do believe that quality can outweigh price. Any thoughts?
