I was shocked today to see what folks were bidding for Veritas low angle block planes on eBay. I was shocked until I double-checked the Lee Valley prices. It looks like there have been two price jumps in the last few months! The latest change (in the past few days) took the DX60 (with a PMV-11 blade) from $215 to $259. Sheesh! It looks like my $35, sole-flattened, Hock-bladed Stanley 60½ may have to serve another 30 years.
