  1. Derek, I keep reading that you've written a review of at least some Veritas bench planes (maybe LN's too?), but I've yet to see a link and it doesn't appear to be in the Rwviews stickie. Where might I find it?

    The prototypes still had LN casting marks on them, it was a simple betrayal by the Woodcraft management. When I learned the sordid truth of this from one of the LN staff, I was outraged. That product line lent credibility to the Woodcraft name. Now, they're a nicer version of Harbor Freight.

    This sort of malfeasance should be exposed for what it is, but large companies have legal staff to punish small challengers.

    Thank you for the links to shooting boards. I find them to be very informative. I agree the the Lee Valley LA jack makes a good shooting plane. I've added a hot dog handle to my list of things to do.

    Derek, so sorry to hear you feel the need to change the way you were doing the great reviews on tools from Lee Valley and others. I guess people can so small minded at times. With regards to certain recent "plane" posts, look at it this way, at least you have a whole career of experience dealing with "children" to draw from. The rest of us aren't as lucky! Thanks again for all your hard, honest work. Callan Campbell
