A plane to last many lifetimes from a normally dependable company

The reason I gave three stars for value, was that upon receipt of the plane I always check and do any fettling, adjustments, honing etc before first use. In the case of this plane I found the chip breaker had not been ground sufficiently flat to the Iron. This is quite shocking for a £500 pound (odd) plane! However this is not my first Lie Nielson Plane and I know that this is not the normal standard for this quite exceptional and normally very dependable company. After correcting this anomaly I know I have a dependable workhorse that will last many lifetimes.
In use it is nothing but a sheer pleasure. The weight means it glides through knots faster, and leaves a better finish than my planer machine! The iron keeps it's edge very well.
I know that like my other LN tools, I will get a lifetime of pleasure and dependable use from it.

LN no 8

Well ware do we start, I have a workmate who bought one a short while ago and a couple days ago he let me try it, no doubt about it its a great plane plenty of weight and works well.
I have a very old stanley no 8 a type 6 made around 1888, I hve owned this plane for over 30 years and can honestly say correctly sharpend and honed its works as well as the LN no 8, the LN range are all copys of stanley bedrock series but the do carry more weight which helps on difficult grain thats true but most of my planes are old stanleys from no 4 to no 8 and sharpened and honed correctly will match anything out their, I have worked wood for 50 years and a bit more both at the bench and out on site and most days will touch up an iron at least 4 or 5 times a day its the iron which dose the job and if the plane is set up correctly their is very little in the preformance of an old stanley and anything out their today excep the price, most of my stanleys are 40 to 50 years old and in constant use and will see me out and anyone who they go to after im gone. Save yourself a lot of money look for the old stanleys and records, spend some time restoring them and you will have planes that match all thoes real expensive planes perhaps not in looks but do you buy a tool to look at or work with. ??? Its all about sharpening, honeing, and setting the plane up once those things are mastered you wont look back and will hav saved a hell of a lot of money and will do just as good a job as the nice looking and high priced planes. ( food for thought)

This is the only lie Nielsen I have bought, I can't justify expensive planes that are general planes , like a smoother,block or a jack, but specialist planes I can ,like a shoulder plane,side rabbet , and this is a specialist plane. It is a joy to use the size,accuracy and weight makes it perfect for jointing boards. It just glides over the timber and the weight enables this plane to keep going over any grain. It is in a different class compared to the veritas bevel up jointer. This plane was fantastic on end grain,if your worried about break out on end grain clamp a block of wood to the workpiece to stop this. Unless you fall in love with the bevel up version this is the king of jointer planes.

Bought the no 8 last week whist all Lie Nielson tools were on offer. I have a no 7 Stanley, which is significantly lighter that the LN. This makes a big difference when planing wood with knots in it. The no 8 just glides along without interruption. I have planed English oak and softwood with it, and the blade still does not show any signed of become dull. The weight of the plane may for some be intimidating, however ask the staff to show you how to use the plane without lifting it off the wood and without dragging the blade. Once this technique is mastered, the weight becomes its real asset.

I used my no 7 for almost everything, which will now be replaced by the LN. I have a full set of planes, but prefer the longest sole to ensure that work turns out flat and true.
