In Detail

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.

We fight over the use of this plane

For our use this is a large plane. We bought it for fine fitting with our instrument work and we are delighted to find that when properly sharp it will tackle riple and burr wood with no danger of tearing difficult grain patterns. We also have a veritas low angle block plane which is accurate and in some respects superior but tge small size wins when workind on detail. With a prepared plane iron it is easy to hold and good for free hand planing and fitting. The plane that we bought has an ajusting mechanism slightly out of alignment with the its body. I suspect that most are more perfect and there are no obvious problems caused by this oversight. We would like to have given this nice little plane five stars otherwise and we might buy another to avoid further workshop squabbling !
