The Bronze Edge-Trimming Plane is no longer available. We still have a limited supply of the replacement blade.
An edge-trimming plane is most useful to do final trimming cuts on jointed boards to ensure smooth edges exactly 90° to the face.
We manufactured this edge plane as an improvement on the old Stanley model #95, with a longer body for registration, and a larger bulb for better grip. We moved the lapped A2 tool steel blade close to the center of the body, and widened the base and the blade to 1-1/4"; so that a full 1" cut can be made.
The lever-feed mechanism has been refined to maintain good blade alignment. The plane is also drilled and tapped to allow a wooden wedge to be fixed to the fence for cutting controlled bevels, such as required in boatbuilding. It is cast in bronze using the lost-wax process and the hand contact areas are polished. An accurate, beautiful plane that is a delight to use. Fence is 6-1/8" long; plane is 6-1/2" long overall and weighs 1 lb 7 oz.
Also available in a fitted hardwood box with finger-joint corners.
Made in Canada.
