That's a very interesting review, Derek. It's very informative and clearly written, and the photos of blade edges and wood surfaces are especially enlightening. Thank you.

I've probably mentioned before that I prefer to use a #7 for shooting end grain. Mine is an L-N, which of course is a bedrock design. I've never seen it mentioned anywhere that the flat top serves a practical purpose, and is not just "trade dress." I guess I'm going to have to build a new chute board that captures the jointer between the bed and the flat top. That raises more questions: Does a bedrock plane fit the #52? How about a #9 miter plane?

Since I'm left handed, the left handed Veritas is very tempting (I already have their left handed rabbet plane and small plough plane). But I realize that when used for shooting, the #7 is ambidextrous, even though not as ergonomic as the Veritas.

One final comment (for Rob): Lee Valley makes replacement PM-V11 blades for Stanley and Record bench planes, but not specifically for the L-N planes, which have thicker irons (0.140"). I've never tried to put a Stanley blade in an L-N plane. Would the lever cap interfere with the depth adjuster? If you don't know the answer off the top of your head, don't fret; I think I have a way to find out.
