Veritas jointer plane for sale,4 poster bed plans free,floating shelf wood plans - Reviews
If going over your target price by $125 or so bothers you, consider this: this plane will last you decades. One alternative is to look for a good quality used Stanley Bailey or even a Bedrock #7 can be found for much less, and you can even toss in an aftermarket blade and chip breaker, like a Hock. I just found out through the grapevine that Woodcraft is adding a #7 jointer to their Woodriver lineup.
And although I've bought and tuned up used planes with success, a jointer plane is going to be more effort to tune up because of its size. If it is anything like the other planes it should be very solid after a slight bit of fettling. I agree that the LN would be superior but if you don't have or can't justify the cash, you might just hold out for the Woodriver, it is after-all basically a LN copy.
