This small, low-angle block plane is ideal for trim carpentry. At 14 oz it is half the weight of a standard block plane, a big plus if you carry it in your apron all day.
The 5-1/2" x 1-3/4" ductile cast iron body takes knocks in stride. It has good hand feel; unique side wings allow a comfortable firm grip and provide stability for shooting. A combined feed and lateral adjustment mechanism makes setting easy and accurate. 12° bed angle. Patented.
It comes with a lapped 25° bevel blade made of either O1 or A2 tool steel, The O1 blade is 0.098" thick (nearly 25% thicker than standard 0.080" block plane blades), 1-1/4" wide, and hardened to Rc58-60. For yet more beef, choose a 1/8" thick A2 blade (Rc60-62).
A 38° A2 toothed blade is available for working difficult grain, especially knots. The small, square teeth leave a textured surface that can be smoothed with a scraper.
A split-leather holster with brass fittings is sold separately. It keeps your apron plane close at hand while working and protects it from damage.
Made in Canada.
