Bill Tindall, E.Tn.
I got so much useless advice along the way. I was convinced to buy a LN 5 1/2. It was the plane to use for woodworking. Fortunately I was buying LN wholesale at the time so it was not like I lost money. But it sat unused after I found that a lighter weight plane was more nimble to use. I never got on with the #4 either. I do use it rarely when a short footprint is essential.
