I just discovered a crack in my favorite #4 Stanley. I have a number of Veritas planes and I really like them. The problem is that the #4 is not available for another month and I need the plane. Lie Nielson has a brass #4 for an additional 125$. For those of you that have experience with both, is the additional cost worth it? The Stanley with the hock blade and cap have performed beautifully for $200 less than the LN. What say you? Thanks in advance.
