A. The latest addition to our series of miniature planes, this version
of our low-angle block plane is about a third the size of the original.
At just under 2-1/2" long and 3/4" wide, it is a useful size
for small-scale work or where a larger plane would be difficult to use.
The low 12° bed angle combined with the 25° blade bevel gives
it a cutting angle of 37°, making it also suitable for end-grain use.
The stainless-steel Norris-style adjuster lets you set the 1/2"
wide A2 blade (0.060" thick) with precision. The body is made from
investment-cast stainless steel, and has a fixed mouth, machined sides
and a ground sole. Weighs 1.7 oz.
Made in Canada. Supplied in a French-fitted embossed leatherette box,
it makes a stunning gift.
B. Previous Miniatures
If you missed out on our previous miniature planes (shoulder, edge, and
router), they are available separately or in a set with our new block plane
The mini shoulder plane, for fine trimming or cleaning the bottom
of narrow dados, weighs 1.7 oz and measures 2-1/2" long by 1/4"
The 2-3/8" long mini edge plane is useful for fine trimming
work on thin stock up to 3/8" thick, such as with small-scale boxes
or maquettes. Both the shoulder and edge planes are investment-cast stainless-steel,
have fixed mouths and use stainless-steel Norris-style adjusters to let
you set the A2 blade with precision.
The tiny 3" wide mini router plane is ideal for hardware
installation and for fine inlay or intarsia work. Its blade, set using
a fine-screw feed mechanism and secured with a knurled clamping knob,
can be positioned inboard for standard use or outboard for true bullnose
work. It has a stainless-steel body with bubinga knobs. As much a pleasure
to look at as to use, each miniature comes in a French-fitted embossed
All are made in Canada. Regular price of all four planes when purchased
individually is $146.00.
