Our low-angle block plane stands apart from all others. Its 12° bed angle and low cutting angle of 37° excel at working end grain. It has higher side wings ideal for shooting, finger grips in each side for better control, and a combined blade advance and lateral adjust that is the most sensitive and accurate available. Two blade guide screws prevent blade shifting.
Its compact 6-3/8" long by 2" wide ductile cast iron body can take hard knocks, and the adjustable nosepiece does not extend past the body, avoiding unwanted blade shifts if the plane is dropped.
Machining is done to exacting standards in our factory; the milled sides and sole are surface ground to a fine finish. Weighs 1-3/4 lb and includes a lapped, 1/8" thick by 1-5/8" wide, 25° blade, in either A2 or O1 tool steel.
We offer various accessories to maximize its use. For working difficult wood, 38° and 50° bevel blades are available in A2 or O1 tool steel. Our A2 toothed blade (38° bevel) works the most difficult grain, especially knots. The small, square teeth leave a textured surface that can be smoothed with a finely set plane or a scraper.
Retrofitted with our tall front knob and new vertical tote, the plane works similarly to a #3 smoothing plane for small-scale work, working in tight areas, or for children to use. Click on "Acc" below for details.
