A Guaranteed Dust Collector

Like all Lie Nielson tools; this is beautifully made, but a poorly thought through design, which is let down by the flawed concept that it requires a ridiculously thick blade, along with a frustrating adjustment mechanism.

The main flaw is that the blade is far too thick: most scraper planes utilise a (approx) 1mm thick blade which can be draw filed and a burr turn in quick time, (that contrary to the claims aren’t subject to undue chatter). Trying to regrind this slab of 3.2mm A2 just to produce a tiny burr is enormously counterproductive. Yes, as other reviewers have commented; this ‘plane’ can be setup to get excellent results, but you wait until it becomes dull!

For a third of the price, I’d encourage anyone to invest in the Veritas Cabinet Scraper; its double edged blade can be sharpened in quick time and fine adjustment is swift and effective… this is a rare case where the cheaper option is also the better option.

Finally got it to work

Have to agree with Ian.
The 112 was an impulse buy at Sittingbourne many years ago, but I was unable to make it work.
Have just spent hours with a coarse diamond stone to reduce the bevel from 60 to 54 degrees (steepest angle on my Veritas jig) then sharpened as usual.
I set the blade angle per Lie Nielsen's video and started producing lace like shavings. I've levelled the ripple bubinga edging on a curly maple table top without tear out.
My 164 honed at 35 degrees handles the two species very well individually, but not reliably side by side.

The best scraping plane?

Comments I'd read, along the lines of Kieran's here, had led me to believe that the LN 112 was going to be a nightmare to set up and a faff to use. I prepped myself by watching Deneb Puchalski's YouTube videos before attempting to first use the plane. I sharpened the blade on my Tormek (at 45° as per instructions) then honed it on waterstones the same as I do all plane blades. I turned a small hook using the Veritas burnisher then dropped it back in the plane, which was still set at the factory angle, and ran it across some crazy, knotty oak with all manner of reverse grain going on. I expected judder and chatter, but what I got instead was perfect, clean shavings (not dust) leaving a smooth, tearout free surface. Like all Lie Nielsen products, this plane is fabulously engineered to last a lifetime. Yes, it does require a little patience to set up, but the result is a plane that will tackle woods that normal bench planes couldn't even look at.

Pretty useless

I have owned the Lie-Nielsen 112 scraper plane for a few years. It is extremely difficult to adjust. will chatter at the least provocation and is in general pretty useless as a scraper. By the time you have sharpened and set it up you would have the job done with a conventional card scraper without the attendant danger of gouging at the corners of the blade.
If you are thinking of investing in one don't bother. You will only find it frustrating and an annoyance.

Easily scrapes home tops

I have a secret passion for scapers - even the sheet of steel variety - so it may come as no surprise that this Lie Nielsen screaper plane was my first Lie Nielsen purchase about twelve years ago. Don't buy it when you are stuck for time as it is a tool that you will need to explore a little before it gives you its best. There are quite a few things that can be adjusted and one set up does not work for every job. The plane tells you when it is not happy with plenty of chatter. I have the other two Lie Nielsen scrapers but this is the most useful. The smaller scraper is quite nice and the cabinet scraper is so pretty that I haven't even used it yet. The big one is the best one for the workshop.
