Reciprocal ohm I thyroxin tocopherol Sir Henry Ferdinand Joseph La Menthe Morton Stanley Tools have recently introduced plans building picnic table their fresh credit line of pass on planes and the LX is their depressed tip labelled. There are many block planes including rare Stanleys like the no. 9 3/4 with rosewood tail knob, 15, 15 1/2 with rosewood tail knobs Block plane include Stanley no. 16, 17, 18, 18 1/4, A18, S18, 19, 120, 130, 131, 230, Stanley two-tone block plane and the Stanley four square household block plane a. There are also three Stanley Excelsior body block planes ( 9 1/2, 9 3/4, 18 & 19).
I understand that to a certain extent you are trying to help us do excellent work with a minimal or starter” set of tools, but would like to hear more as we advance about the longstanding traditions of using different planes for different work, such as the benefits of a try plane in smoothing a panel or the pleasure and unmatched precision of a jointer plane for shooting an edge.
In my purview at the bench, when I stand and stare at the plane, look inside its internal gubbins, something tells me this low-angle plane is better equipped to the task and challenge because of its low angle, thickness of iron, weight-in-the-throat, inline support of mechanical adjuster mechanism, mass of steel because of low-angle presentation and so on. In other words I want to believe that by its very appearance it will be vastly superior in performance.

I just couldn’t let this go. I’ve used Stanley products for most of the 30+ years I’ve been a woodworker and I have not used this plane mainly because I use a vintage Stanley low angle along with other planes, but to have the last poster compare this plane to a $3000 one off plane is ridiculous and I don’t know what he did to that plane too strip out the cap nut and shear the mouth pivot , but he’s obviously someone who doesn’t understand tools.
Judging by the numbers still out there, these were very popular planes, so popular that many of Stanley’s competitors decided to make their versions of wood bottom planes (makers such as Sargent, Union, Birmingham, Siegley, etc.). When sold originally, they were at a price somewhat less than their iron counterparts making it possible for the average Joe Meatball of the day to afford a plane that came equipped with the Bailey patented features.
I suffered through 4 or 5 different low quality block planes (from yard sale pickups to hardware store purchases) before finally getting a LN for Christmas a few years ago. I personally believe that NAFTA is just another way for large corporations to take advantage of low paid workers in Mexico. My problem with my current block plane is that it is taking a lot of effort and force to use and I thought this was just the way low angle blocks were. At the top of the scale both in price and in function, the new line of block planes from Veritas are a true marvel of technology.
P.S. If you are thinking about getting a Stanley Premium No. 4, add $20 more to get a Veritas No. 4. If anything is wrong with your plane, Veritas/Lee Valley will work with you to solve the problem. I mean current Stanley tools certainly look to the lay-person like the vintage Stanley/Bailey tools, but are not of the same quality and performance. The Stanley low angle block plane has cutter angle set at 12 degrees for plastics laminates and end grain. The new Veritas Premium Block Planes are going to cause a stir, ignite intense feeling of desire, and become an instant classic. The Stanley No. 45 was produced between 1884 and 1962, and is still used by woodworkers.
DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN Saving weight on the lever cap allowed for a thicker plane body. Last night I spent an hour with a Stanley #4 I bought for $25 at a flea market. The things that stand out more broady with this and other low angle planes is you can adjust the mouth without having to remove a blade and move a frog and in the Stanley’s case and I’m sure the others too I found the norris adjuster more precise than the Bailey style.
