Got the regular sale email from Woodcraft today, and each of these
items are on sale for $120, but only if you buy them through the link
in the email. If you aren't on their list, I pasted the text below,
and if that doesn't work, I can forward you the email.
I'm planning negotiations with SWMBO to pick up the LN plane... (Unless
someone convinces me the LV LABP is somehow better)
Well, I've not used the LN, but I have zero regrets forking over the $
for the LV LABP. I've several other Stanley blocks. They sit gathering
What's the price differential between the two? Something like $40? The
LN *may* look nicer, (or not ...), but I don't see how it could work $40
better than the LV.
YMMV, of course --
I've got both the LN and the LV block planes, and they are both FINE tools.
My experience, for some reason, is that I pick and use the LN more
frequently. It's narrower, and fits my hand, and often my work, better.
When I want a slightly larger plane, I have a nice, really old, Stanley #3
sweetheart, tuned up pretty well, that fills the bill. So the LV block
doesn't get too much use.
But that's just me. Both of these block planes are standard angles,
however. Choose what you need.
I don't know squat about planes, but have researched and many here
recommend this plane - even as a starting plane. I'm probably going to
buy this on Thurs, and see if the extra 10% is applied. Do you know if
this sale will be on then as well?
Might try to find a smoother and jointer too...
I ordered "The Handplane Book" yesterday as well.
Maybe I'll build a workbench now...
