I was working some tiger maple that my 607 Bedrock wouldn't work because it
was lifting the grain and tearing out. I put the 50 degree iron in my LV BU
Jack Plane and was able to achieve a rub fit glue joint.
I really like the low center of gravity on that plane. It fast becoming my
preferred plane. :-)
Thanaks for the info on that. I've also got the Lee Valley Bevel Up
Jack, and was wondering about how well the 50 degree blade works with
It really is a nicely engineered tool. The ability to swap blades in
and out easily is big win. I also like the way everything else
adjusts easily on it as well. I've been using it for dimensioning
some small stock that I've milled on my bandsaw, and for the first
time I'm finding it both fun and easy to actually get things squared
Lee Valley also did the right thing by making it possible to swap
blades around between the smoother, jack and jointer. I don't have
the smoother or jointer yet--but I will soon. :)
