Wow, that is nice. I wondered when they were going to make one. Thanks for the link, Ken.10 December 2013 at 12:52 am #23441
Yeah it is nice, I dread to think how much it will cost though Jay.10 December 2013 at 1:24 am #23442
Ken, I’m sure it will be as much as some of their more expensive planes, which are out of my price range. I have a Stanley 50, but I’m sure if I wanted to upgrade to a modern plow plane I’m sure the Veritas is going to be a lot cheaper. Still, that LN looks great in those pictures.10 December 2013 at 1:34 am #23443
Yep and mine, bottom line it won’t do anymore than an old Stanley or Record 🙂10 December 2013 at 1:36 am #23445Greg MerrittParticipant
Very nice! But I too shutter to think of the price on that one. Its a good thing I love my old Record 043.

HaHa +1 for the Record 043 😉10 December 2013 at 4:06 am #23453str8tedgeParticipant
That Lie Neilsen Plow is going to be very costly. Fortunately I have the magic #405 Record Multiplane which is my most prized hand tool. One of the best purchases I ever made. Makes molding, beading, and sash a breeze.
I have all the cutters except the set of hollow noses they sold separately. I’ll find them eventually.
Record published a book called ‘Planecraft’ reprinted in 1979 covering the history of planes and uses of Record planes. Published by C. J. Hampton Ltd. Sheffield, England. One chapter covers the use of the #405 and all it’s functions. A super tool.

I fell into a sweet deal today on a Stanley 45. It is still in the original box With all the attachments and 20 cutting irons. It says in the literature the lady gave me with it that it was made somewhere between 1884 and 1895. I also found a Record 038. Both in mint condition. My wife is going to kill me….
Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

Maybe you should sell one of those fine tools to me. You know, just to keep your wife happy 🙂

Looks really nice. I will be interested to see what the price ends up being. I have the Veritas plow and like it very much. Excellent bang for the buck.

I’m guessing it’ll cost an incredible amount! There’s a short bit of video about the new plane on one of The Wood Whisperer’s videos. He saw it at WIA this year. It starts around the 3:00 mark in this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzaqxP0JU44
The thing I like about the look of this one is that there’s somewhere for your index finger to go. I have the Veritas version and really like it – I especially like the fence because it gives something to grip with my off hand but my index finger still misses some positive registration surface.

The Veritas plough plane is one of my favourite tools as well. I have the tongue and groove cutters for it as well as the regular blades. It’s a joy to use, and I haven’t used my router in place of it since I purchased it. Well worth the price. I would imagine the Lie Nielsen plane will be around $250.19 November 2014 at 9:59 pm #121204
Anybody hear anything else about this plane? This was about a year ago… wonder if they scrapped it?
