In Detail

A near half size version of a No. 97 plane which went out of production in 1944. 165mm(6.1/2") long with a 44.5mm(1.3/4") blade. Weight 680g(1.1/2lb).As a plane it makes a very poor tool, but then that's not its intended function.Where it excels is with the blade set flush with the sole, trimming plugs, through tenons, trimming dovetails flush, cleaning off dried glue lines or into the ends of rebates, as with a removable nose bullnose plane. This plane with its micro-adjuster and 4.8mm(3/16") thick A2 cryogenically treated blade, neither looks nor performs like any other. A great tool.
