This is my favourite tool; a well used Veritas bevel up jack plane.

I have a 38 degree plane iron in it and a 50 deg. iron for difficult grain. The plane is remarkably versatile; I use it for everything from initial rough stock removal, to jointing, flattening and smoothing. Part of its versatility comes from the ease of mouth adjustment; rather than getting out a screwdriver and adjusting the frog, simply loosen the front knob and open or close the mouth. Overall a well designed, well thought out plane.

Definitely a great tool

Veritas makes good stuff. I have several planes on my list.
I am trying to buy them slowly so I don’t blow all my woodworking allowance all at one
