Post: RE: Shooting Board Plane. NY Tri-State area

I had a LN #9 (sold it), after I bought a LV miter shooting plane. The LV (not the one the OP is selling) is by far the most comfortable shooting plane I've used, beating the LN #9 by a mile.

Depends upon the job at hand. Cordless drills and drivers? Pretty much all the time. Circular saw? Maybe 30% cordless. Sawzall? Maybe 5% cordless. Router? About 50 - 50.
