Palm planes are ideal for working on small projects and in areas where a larger plane would be cumbersome. These compact planes are similar to the Stanley No.100 and No.100.1/2, with a slightly larger squirrel-tail handle for improved control and comfort.
The flat palm plane is perfect for chamfering and trimming, whilst the curved palm plane has the sole rounded 38mm(1.1/2") side-to-side and 300mm(12") front-to-back, making it ideal for working hollows such as on chair seats.
The investment-cast steel bodies are accurately machined and have a 45° bed angle and a fixed mouth. The flat plane has a lapped sole (to a flatness tolerance of ±0.005mm or better); the curved plane has a finely milled sole. The blades are 30° bevel O1 lapped tool steel (2.15mm thick by 25.4mm wide), and are secured with a cogwheel screw.
Each plane weighs less than 200g with an 85mm sole, 34mm wide, and 125mm long overall.

Great little planesRecently purchased both flat & curved planes along with the "Little Victor" & can honestly say they are all brilliant. The great thing about the squirrel tail planes is they feel so natural in the hand. They are very well made & do exactly as you want & go where you want them to go. Many uses & quite indispensable for small, miniature & delicate work.

Squirrel Taioled Plane Curved SoleThis is a dream come true for the initial hollowing out the plates, particularly the backs of violins violas and cellos where speed of stock removal along with great accuracy is required. Brilliant!
