Retraction - problem resolved by Lie Nielsen

Having written about my disappointment with a badly fitting lever cap and not being impressed with Axminster's response I made direct contact with Lie Nielsen. I was extremely surprised to receive a reply directly from Deneb Puchalski- he 'stars' in many of Lie Nielsen's instructional videos. Within 48 hours he and his colleagues are arranging to replace the ill-fitting lever cap and, amazingly, a blade from my 8tear old #102 low angle block plane, AT NO COST.
That level of service makes the difference between a company like Lie Nielsen and others who pass off their responsibilities or take a couldn't care less attitude.
BTW most importantly, the plane is a dream to use. Thank you Lie Nielsen.

Quality of engineering not what is expected!

I've read so much about the quality of Lie Nielsen tools, and in particular their planes. So much is reported about the quality of engineering, set up ready to go out of the box etc. I already own a low angle LN black plane, which is great except that adjusting the blade is not smooth as The cap screw constantly needs to be 'over loosened' to allow adjustment, a quangsheng No 4 and several old Stanley and Record planes of various sizes.
I considered buying a Woodriver 51/2 but finally decided to pay the premium cost of the LN. I opened the LN quite flimsy cardboard box today and there was much to appreciate. However, whilst the blade sits square and central, the cap iron (or cap bronze to be more accurate) will not. It sits lop-sided by at least 1mm on one side whilst matching edge to edge with the blade on the other side. I cannot adjust it to sit centrally. It's as though the screw is offset instead of exactly in the middle. Irritating and disappointing.

A Truly Awesome Plane

This really is a truly amazing tool and the level of craftsmanship make it a delight to use. I call this my first REAL plane. It is so far superior to anything I have ever used before that they are hunks of metal with a dull edge in comparison.

I fully concur with all that Tim Brison said above, if you only buy one plane, you will never regret saving up for this one.

Simply Awesome!

If you can only afford one Lie Nielson bench plane, get this one!

Basically, it's so good, you can use it for almost any task - even those for which it is not strictly suited - like edge jointing.

It was the first LN I bought - the base was flat and sides at 90 degrees: nothing is required except final honing / stropping to get your desired bevel angle - but it was sharp straight out of the box.

It is heavy - but that's no bad thing - it sails straight over knots and tough grain!

A2 blades are very hard - so some grinding skill may be required to reduce the time it takes to re-sharpen a dull edge, but appart from that, it's the best plane this side of Sauer & Steiner!
