    I just bought this block plane today. I had to turn the screw 1/2 rotation…. not sure if I can handle the stress of that…

    What’s up Mike! I finally got around to watching this video. That’s a beautiful hand plane, I cant believe that’s considered a defect. As far as I’m concerned their ain’t nothing wrong with it. Enjoy it!

    I just got one of these and I’m going to return it. They don’t list the weights of the plane like LN does on their website. It’s heavy. I’ve been using the basic Stanley low angle block plane made in England for forty years or so as a contractor, finish carpenter and timber framer. I decided I’d upgrade to this plane given that I’m now making furniture and doing custom woodworking. I found the DX60 to be too heavy for a small tool. It weighs 28 oz, a full five ounces heavier than my Stanley, which comes in at 23 oz. The LN low angle block plane weighs 24 oz, according to their website. This plane is a quarter pound heavier than that. I’m going to call Lee Valley tomorrow and maybe trade it in for their standard low angle block plane if the weight is the same as the LN or my Stanley. I’m 74 years old and I don’t need extra heavy tools. I have larger, heavier planes for smoothing and shooting boards but the weight is necessary for them to perform their tasks. I don’t think that is the case with this plane which does mostly lighter tasks.
