Lie Nielsen #3

Got a Lie Nielsen #3 (don't bash me for buying new, not a lot of good used planes around here, plus I don't have the time). Spent less than 5 minutes freehand sharpening the blade (I use Rob Cosmans method) and here is the shaving from a 1 3/8" piece of alder.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

Sweet looking plane, and in bronze to boot. Congratulations on the new addition to the family.

I won't bash you for buying new, nor for bragging on such a sweet piece of workmanship.

That is one nice plane and a really good shaving to boot!

if you're going to buy new, you made the right choice. I love LN's, second only to my vintage.

Very nice, drooling over here.

Is bronze better than iron for any reason? I've always wondered about that.

It's heavier. Won't rust? Or at least not as likely too?
