The bevel-up configuration of our low-angle block plane lets you vary the blade angle to suit the task, from low-angle blades for use on end grain to high-angle blades on figured wood. However, steeper cutting angles require more force to push the plane.
We offer an inexpensive vertical tote that, when used with a front knob, adapts our low angle block plane into a small bevel-up smoothing plane that can work a wide variety of woods, providing the firm hold and greater leverage needed to plane difficult wood. Used with these simple retrofits, the plane works similarly to a #3 smoothing plane for small-scale work, working in tight areas, and for use by children or those with small hands or less strength. Combined with a selection of optional blades, they convert our low-angle block plane into a highly versatile plane that is easy and comfortable to use.
The tote is made of torrefied maple.
