that scraper plane is a beauty!

I've been very pleased with it. I tend to use it in preference to my #80 style scraper for small stuff. I've found that the secret to getting scraper planes with thick blades to work well is to hone a slight camber on the blade. It compensates for the fact that you can't bow the blade.

Cheers :wink:

Looks great, but in the absence of any Clifton block plane, LN got my money about 3 years ago. I've wondered about bronze planes: being softer than iron, do they start to show wear after a while? Do they leave metallic traces on the wood: even iron does this, but bronze far more so, I'd have thought?

Lie Nielsen's answer to that: Question 6

Do you mean #2 instead of #6?
