This premium 9 1/2in block plane has the base and frog cast as one to reduce chatter and the base is precision machined flat to .003in for accuracy. The thicker blade (3mm) reduces chatter and the blade is made of A2 steel for increased edge retention, which also stays sharper for longer.
The heavier body gives increased performance and the solid brass adjustments a smooth operation.
Patented lateral adjustment locking feature for easy adjustment. This plane is ideal for end grain and general purpose fine finishing work.
