    Veritas Shooting Plane quite a bit out of square. How important is this?

    Thread Starter: Hasin Haroon

    Allow me to preface this post by saying this is not meant to be a post hating on Veritas tools or their commitment to quality at all - I have purchased almost all of the planes they offer (I'm not particularly affluent, so this means I need to save up/sell other tools to be able to afford them) and...

    Thread Starter: dirk martin

    Right now I'm a one man shop. I cut and sell wood of all shapes and sizes, over the web, all over the world. I use a table saw, bandsaw, chop saw, and wide belt sander, daily, to fill my orders. When I cannot handle orders, I outsource work to my nephew, in another state. He has a full...
