Block planes are necessary tools in any workshop. Held with one hand, they are excellent for use where a larger plane is too bulky.
Both models are fully adjustable, including the nosepiece (for throat control on difficult woods). For best results, always keep the blade razor sharp and set it to make light cuts.
Two models are available, both about 6 1/4" long. The standard plane has a 1 5/8" blade set at about 20°. The low-angle version has a 1 3/8" blade set at about 13.5° and is especially good for fine work on end grain.
