Have about decided to use a Christmas gift certificate for a LN 140.
This review http://www.ukworkshop.co.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?tU62
points out some negatives of this plane, but Alf's main negatives seem
to be as a general purpose skew plane. Having just fielded my first
raised panels with bench planes, I'm sold on this plane for that
purpose, and am willing to live with the negatives mentioned in this
However, in the discussion, someone asked "Do you know if Veritas got
plans to manufacture one of these types?", to which Rob Lee replied
"....of course..... but different..."
Anyone (Rob?) know the status of that? The only candidate I know of in
the last 18 months is the trim plane, which is a small skew plane, but
not a 140 substitute for my purpose.
