you get what you pay forthese tools are superb, they do not need fettling to produce a good finish. the blade is substantial and avoids chatter when planing, the blade does need a proper sharpen however before any serious work is done. as regards board jointing I think some people expect the plane to do all the work , back to basics and learn the proper skills first, this plane is not meant for weekend diy use

Superb finishHave to write that I've never enjoyed using a hand tool in my life until I purchased this plane. The plane is made well, it's a nice weight, the fine adjustment works brilliantly and the blade leaves a glass like finish where no sanding is needed. I know it costs a lot of money but well worth it. The only downside is that it doesn't give a true flat edge as I found out when egde jointing cocobolo guitar backs. Perhaps it was the wood but considering the quality of the blade I find it highly unlikely.

Lie-Nielsen No. 7 Jointer PlaneThis plane leaves an absolutely beautiful finish when edge-jointing. Just like all the other Lie-Nielsen tools I have bought, the finish was excellent and the sole flat over the entire length of the plane - just what you want on a jointer. The plane has a good balance in the hand, being sufficiently weighty yet not too heavy to handle during long planing sessions. Not a cheap option, but you get what you pay for in this case.
