Anyone here a fan of Lie Nielsen planes? I first got into woodworking back in the late 80's. Somewhere along the line I got a catalog from Garrett Wade, I believe, and Lie Nielsen planes were featured. A couple of years later we were on vacation in Maine and just happened along the Garrett Wade facility. I got a chance to check out the operation. I eventually acquired a few Lie Nielsen planes.
Fast forward a few decades, and I'm starting to downsize, and shop tools that I haven't used in years are a prime target. I have this great Lie Nelsen mitre plane, based on the Stanley #9. It's a beast, a five and a half pound really rock solid, well made tool. I took a look around e - b a y and was surprised to see them selling for upwards of $700+--I believe I paid around $150 for it, but memory is fuzzy. Turns out LN discontinued making them some years ago, and they're a hot commodity. This tool is a pleasure to use, but I'm not using it, so I'm going to let a real artisan or a collector have it.
