    Veritas has a much more involved process. . .

    Yes I saw this today too, very amusing. I know Rob vaguely, bumped into him at Goulden Hardwoods.

    It’s part of an ad campaign for a new line of planes by the looks (they already have one at the low end so I guess they’re trying to cash in on the hand tool revival). They do look posh, I’d be interested to know what they’re like – whether they’re a step up from the budget lines like Faithful in terms of engineering, or if they’ve just slapped on a bit of brass, a brand name and 30 quid.

    I was at the launch at our local Lee Valley store. The planes are very well designed and manufactured. The feature I liked was the throat adjustment, which works in the same manner as the bevel up planes. I like that Veritas is being innovative, not just copying the old Bailey pattern. They’re a bit too expensive for me though.

    Good one. Reminds me of an ad in a photography magazine for an “instant darkroom bulb.” Just plug it in, turn it on, and it absorbed light. On the box, in large red letters, was this warning: “CAUTION, DO NOT POINT AT SUN.”
