You could use this small plane, as it stands, in a similar way you would use a finger plane. However, the initial purpose was for use in a self-made wooden plane body. This allows you full control over the shape and function of the finished plane to suit your purpose. It is particularly useful for making a chamfer plane tailored to a specific angle. Fitting neatly into a 43mm x 19mm mortice, the cast stainless steel body has a hand finishd sole, a 45° bed angle and a fixed mouth. A brass retention screw secures the included 30° bevel A2 tool steel blade (1.5mm thick by 12mm wide). Notches along the sides of the body permit mechanical glue lock. Instructions are included for creating a basic wooden body as well as chamfer guides. This is a simple way to construct a unique plane. Made in Canada.
