40b butt mortice planewish i had bought this little beauty ages ago.....makes fitting of hinges and mortice latches/locks faceplates an absolute doddle. Produces perfect uniformly deep mortices in a quarter of the time & effort as opposed to chisels. Blade seems to keep an edge for a long time as well.

LN 40B - A delight to use.This is an unusual tool. With only a little practice, it is easy to use and produces highly accurate, clean mortices for hinges. The blade must be razor sharp. Good layout with a sharp marking knife is also key. Best of all, its use is satisfying.
