With a sole measuring only 1 25/32" wide and 5 13/16" long, this diminutive plane is light enough to use one-handed, similar in use to a block plane, and more manageable and maneuverable than a full-size bench plane for small-scale work.
It shares the same features as the other planes in our bevel-up series, including a Norris-type adjuster for easy, accurate blade setting, and guide screws to center and fix the blade. By swapping in a blade honed with a different micro-bevel, you can easily alter the effective cutting angle of the plane. The adjustable mouth can be closed to a narrow slit for fine shavings with minimum tear-out, or opened for heavier cuts, with the toe position secured with a locking knob.
The plane body is fully stress-relieved ductile iron. It is accurately machined and ground so that the sole is flat and the sides are square to the sole. The wooden front knob and rear handle provide a comfortable grip. The blade is bedded at 15°, resulting in an effective cutting angle of 40° with the supplied 25° lapped blade. Available with a 1 7/32" wide blade in either O1 or PM-V11 tool steel.
