Often I have gotten very helpful suggestions from Lie Nielsen. My experience with occasional tearout under a semi gloss finish was that areas worked tightly with a card scraper were so noticeable under the finish I had to strip and go over the entire surface with a jointer plane and smoother. Then I was careful when I had to use a card scraper was to work out gradually to a 12" x 12" square before applying the finish. I've also used a block plane and a low angle #62. I don't have a scraper plane. All my planes are Lie Nielsen because I like the traditional look, but I've always expected the Veritas planes would be equal in performance.
