Re: Birthday gift to myself

Unfortunately, the oft lauded (due to LV using it) norris adjuster is worse than no adjuster in a smoothing plane.

Only after buying two A5s did I go to the UK forum and find out that everyone in the UK hates them.

You can learn their quirks and work quite fine with them, but you're still better off without them in a smoother, and probably with a panel plane.
