I bought a record standard angle plane a number ~5-8 yrs ago from LV.
I thought I would try to upgrade my plane with one of the replacement blades
that they recently released. I picked up the 1-5/8" with the 7/16" slot
but couldn't get it to fit over the skew adjuster. I could have filed it
to fit but since I live < 10 minutes from the Ottawa store I decided to
force myself to go for a browse,eerrr visit. All agreed it wouldn't fit and
that yes indeed, I had picked the correct blade. We tried a Hock
replacement and it fit perfectly. So, I ended up paying the difference for
the Hock. No big deal but I wanted the LV blade. Its less expensive,
thicker and A2 steel.
My question is has anyone else tried one of the new replacement blade in a
British made record standard angle block plane?
