Shoulder plane wanted

That was a smoking Black Friday deal; if I didn't have a shoulder plane I really like, I would have jumped on it. My friend who works at Lee Valley said they were gone by noon. I can see why!

Wow, I'm feeling quite lucky.

It's a great plane and as I mentioned it is supposed to be a manufactured second... I can't seem to find the flaw in it. They paper inside the package said it had a cosmetic flaw. I've looked at it in every light I can and I didn't find the flaw. So, I'm feeling pretty good about the purchase.

Ditto on the Veritas shoulder plane. I can't find any flaws in the one I got either.

If you are into making tools, Ron Hock sells a kit for a wooden shoulder plane, 3/4", and under $100. I made one last year and like it for light work, the metal one is a good weight though and works better on gnarly wood.

I videoed the build, it is on my blog. Matt Vanderlist also covered the Hock kit on his site.
