This plane cuts large-scale rebating down to size. The body is 385mm long and the blade extends the full width (57mm) of the body. It is suitable for very large rebates and fielded or bevelled panels. The long sole and substantial mass help ensure accuracy. The 4.8mm thick bevel-up blade makes right or left-handed corner cuts cleanly and accurately. Adjustable scoring spurs on either side of the body scribe the cut ahead of the blade, minimising tear-out on cross-grain work. Mounted on two steel fence rods with brass collet screws, the 185mm long removable fence can be set up to 133mm from the shoulder. The rear tote tilts and locks to either side for knuckle clearance. The mouth is adjustable, a narrow slit for fine shavings or opened for heavier cuts. A Norris-style mechanism combines feed and lateral adjustments for easy, precise blade setting. Includes a lapped 25° blade in PM-V11 powder metal alloy. Made in Canada.

Great versatile toolI couldn’t decide which plane to buy, I really wanted the low angle jack plane, but it was on back order. I fancied this after the I noticed that it was the same length and bed angle the only big difference being the open sides when the nickers are retracted. I bought an extra blade so I can have a dead straight one and a cambered one for using it as a jack plane. Its great for crossing grain with the nickers down, ooh errr? And with the fence, it is so accurate even in my hands!

Amazingreceived it recently and of course couldn't wait to try it out. Comes sharp and nearly finished set up. Tried it on a future door panel along the grain and across the grain.
