Hello Ron

As Potosan said, have a go at the joints, they aren't as tricky as they look.
Thanks for the Taping tip Jim and welcome to talkfestool!

Potosan, I've never seen one of those before, looks real nice though. I don't have any hand tools nice enough to be called "collectables" and I agree with you about tools being used and not just looked at:p Even if I owned really nice planes and chisels, they would soon look like my old "user" Stanley Bailey's and basic Japanese chisels, Marples blue handles
cheers!
Okami

I'm with you on that, Okamisan. Tools should be used, not just looked at. My "collectible" tools won't be very collectible after I'm done with them. On the other hand, Gillian's grandchildren could still enjoy them!

That is one scary looking paperweight Peter.
I hope you wear thick leather shoes while working with it.

The thing is, Michael, it's only about 4.5" long from tip to tail. Surprisingly small. But it'll leave a nice gouge in your foot if you drop it...

Photo-- before you waste any more time messing with that Veritas
get this Stanley 80. It's not pretty but it will do the job faster, easier and cheaper than any other tool. Per gave me one of those Veritas scraper planes and it sits on the shelf. I can do the job in less time than it takes to tune up that fancy paper weight.

Hey Bob - I recall you mentioned that Stanley 80 before. I'm sure it works like a charm. But you've got to admit that the Veritas "paperweight" is awfully nice looking!

I'm sure I'll discover that you're right. Just give me a few decades...
