@ken: Sorry about the errant info then. I checked for the exact same thing before placing my order and got the impression that the new version was the only one available. This was German online dealers.
But send an email or call Veritas. I can’t imagine that they won’t send you an update kit.
@rob: As you have experience with both planes, would you say that the Lie-Nielsen has a wider base surface (as it extends the full area under the knobs) than the Veritas? That was one concern I had when choosing but couldn’t find any facts about.
