In Detail

A low angle smoothing plane has three key uses. It is used to smooth surfaces, preferably taking a diagonal cut, partly across and partly along the grain. With its generous side wings, it is ideal for shooting mitres and great for end-grain work. The low cutting angle of 37° minimises fibre tearing. With a bed angle of 12°, this is a bevel-up plane like a low angle block plane. It features an adjustable mouth with a unique stop-screw, a combined feed and lateral adjustment knob for blade setting, and a generous Bubinga front knob and rear handle. The ductile cast iron body is 254 x 63mm(10" X 2.1/2"). Overall weight is just over 1.1kg(3.1/2 lb.). The supplied 25° bevel blade is 50mm(2") wide by 3.2mm(1/8") thick, lapped, and available in O1 or PM-V11 alloy steel. For working difficult grain, additional blades are available with 38° or 50° bevels. The lapped blades have a flatness tolerance of ±0.005mm or better over the working surface, and with an average roughness surface finish of 0.000127mm(5 micro inches) or better.

Almost perfect

The longer I've had this plane the more I've got to like it. It's exceptionally easy to set up and will cut whisper thin shavings with a minimum of fuss in all the hardwoods I've thrown at it (no, not literally thrown at it). It's quite light, and is best for final smoothing rather than for rough stuff. The little blade adjusting screws to square the blade are brilliant. Its one flaw is that sometimes shavings get caught behind the brass mouth-adjusting screw and can be tricky to free up. I've learnt you just have to clear it now and then during a job to prevent this. But that's my reason for the four on features. Fantastic though.
