: I don't know if this is THE NOVEMBER 24TH UNVEILING Lee Valley/Veritas
: has been hinting at, but the new(?) Veritas (R) Block Planes (DX60 Block
: Plane and the NX60 Premium Block Plane - $179 & $279 respectively)
: appear to have used extensive wind tunnel testing during the design
: Up to now, Veritas has taken tried and true hand tools and improved
: their functionality, ease of use AND ergonomics. Now, with their new
: dovetail saw, and these two new block planes - they've added
: aerodynamics and pizzaz to the product line - and a Stylist to their
: design team.
: I hope the design team remembered to put a hand brake on those block
: planes because without one I'm sure they'll zooooooom off your bench the
: minute you set them down.
Those planes are much more beautiful than any Ferrari. Better car comparison
is an Aston-Martin, classic Jaguar, or the amazing '30s cars that
were on display at the Phoenix Art Museum's Curves of Steel show in
2007, some of hich can be seen at
My hat is off to Lee Valley -- amazing design.
