This pocket-sized block plane is the smallest of Lie-Nielsen hand planes to feature a captive nut blade adjuster for precisely controlled depth of cut. The Violin Maker’s Plane includes several significant features that put it in a class of its own. The body and cap are manganese bronze for extra weight, durability and resistance to rust. The blade is 22mm wide by 3.2mm thick for chatter-free cuts and made from cryogenically treated A-2 steel for prolonged edge life. The addition of a finely controlled blade depth adjuster makes this little workhorse perfect for detail-oriented jobs like instrument building or model making. The body is 90mm long x 30mm wide x 41mm tall. The blade is bedded at 18°. Weight is 227g.
