What Do You Think Of The New Veritas Tools...




  1. Nice. Really nice.

  2. I saw a picture of the DX60 before the NX60 and my first reaction was tentative. Then I saw the NX60 and fell in love. Funny thing then was going back to the DX60 it looked better than the first time.

    I think I needed to see the form in the NX and go "oohh shiny" in order to then appreciate the shape in the less shiny DX.

    As for the saw, I just don't really like the look of it, but if it brings a good western saw to a reasonable price point, then good for them.

  3. The new planes look great, but I'm very happy with some pre-war Baileys for the bench and an 1896 Stanley LA block plane. They're all kept sharp enough to remove fingerprints without removing fingertips.

    While I may not buy them, I'm very pleased to see folks like LV, LN, Gramercy, et al keeping the hand tools business alive. It almost died a few years back. I wish LV well.

  4. Is that nitro charged by any chance?

  5. Mitchell, FABULOUS illustrations--pen & ink (or illustrator??) AND photoshop!

  6. Luke, thanks for that. I had a hoot putting them together.

    You are bang-on, Jonathan. The lines of the tool are hidden in the flat-black version, but jump right out at you in the shiny one. As for the saw, I'm still making up my mind about it.

    I, like you, Bob, wouldn't give up the few older planes I own and I am more than pleased with the remaining being traditional styled Veritas'. I would buy the new NX60 in a minute, though. Not for me, but for my son. I think designs like this may bring the younger generations into the hand tool fold and hopefully, regenerate both the hobby and those that service it.

    No, Gary, it is environmentally friendly. Its water powered - ok, sweat powered, but its still environmentally friendly.

    Thanks, Kari. I know you are a graphic designer as well. The illustration is all Illustrator and the photo, of course, is Photoshop, with an acknowledgment to a whole lot of copyright infringement. Where would we be without Adobe?

    I also would like to acknowledge and thank the many that emailed me their appreciation for my electronic doodling, as well. I wish some of my past commercial commissions were as enthusiastically and widely accepted as these two little doodles were.
