Lie-Nielson vs. Veritas block planes
Ok folks, I need some plane advice.
I am new to woodworking and need a new plane. I bought a Veritas low-angle smoothing plane and enjoy it. Now I want a block plane and here’s the dilemma: a Lie-Nielson adjustable mouth block plane, on sale for $130 at Woodcraft, vs. a Veritas low-angle block plane with adjustable mouth, at $100. Something I really like about the Veritas is the set of lateral adjustment screws (this is probably because I am bad at adjusting the Stanley plane blades).
So, does anyone have experience with the two, and do you see differences worth noting?
