LN 40/12 scrub plane

Yes its a good scrub plane as are all the LN planes but for a scrub comes with a price.
Its quite easy to turn an old Stanley 4/12 into a good scrub plane which will match the LN it only takes an hour or so and saves you a lot of cash, work on curving the iron and opening the center of the mouth you will soon have a good scrub plane that will do the job just as well.
All the old Stanleys are great planes if sharpenend and honed correctly and will last a life time even with evrey day use, unfortunatly the new Stanley range are not of the same quality, look out for the oldies the older the better and turn it into a great working tool, I have the full range and had them for years and used evrey day, learn to sharpen, hone and set up and you wont be dissapointed with an old Stanley of that you can be sure.

Does whats its designed for

I know there aren't many out there who like to prepare rough stock by hand but if you have a masochistic streak like me this is the tool for the job. removes large pieces of stock quite nicely when flattening boards making the job suprisingly quick. price a bit hefty for what it is but only to be expected for a lie nielsen.
