Re: Advice needed on type of plane to trim 3/4" red oak with the grain



*** Belatedly, I'll support the LV low angle plane. Not sure if I am satisfied with it (everytime I use it I want to redesign it), but it certainly does the job better better than any other plane I ever used. Must be among my three most used tools.
I don't think a Stanley 60 1/2 is useful for anything, not even as a door stop. PvR

Hey, I'm more easygoing and know what to do with those things. Send those two ugly doorstops to me, please. Got my address?
P.S: Thanks in advance.

*** Well, I might have but for two things: 1) mailing is prohibitively expensive 2) it might get sold to a dupe, who would then conclude that block planes are no good and gets turned off for ever ...

Did you notice that I didn't offer to fund that trip for them? <g>

No, I'd definitely keep them. I absolutely adore my 60-1/2 with the Hock iron in it, though that may be replaced by the Knight Small plane which is on its way to me RSN.

*** Well, a heavier replacement blade would add to the weight and would increase the suitability of a Stanley 60 1/2 as a doorstop. Still, it would not be heavy enough to hold much of a door .... PvR

You're supposed to wedge it under the door.
