Blade adjustment in a wooden plane is not as complex as most people think.
To fix the blade in the body, you tap the wedge in. To increase depth of cut, you tap the blade on the end. To reduce depth of cut, a sharp tap on the heel of the body, followed by a tap on the wedge to tighten it, does the job. To adjust skew, tap the blade on the side.
The main historical problem is that people used steel hammers to do all this tapping. Steel mushrooms blades and destroys bodies over time. Our hammer solves both problems. The brass end of the head will not deform steel and the wooden insert end is kind to the body. At 8 oz, the cast head is an ideal weight. 11" ash handle. The perfect tool for wooden plane owners.
