Adjustable Mouth Block Planes
These Iron Block Planes are 6¼" long with a 1-3/8" (3.49cm) x 1/8" (3.17mm) thick blade. Bodies are surface ground flat and square to a tolerance of less than .001" (.0254mm), and feature a moveable shoe to allow precise, easy control over the mouth opening in front of the blade. You can easily adjust the tool to suit the work being done — a very fine mouth setting for finishing work and the merest shavings, or an ample opening for rank cuts.
The Bronze cap iron is large and comfortable. It is tensioned with a
1½" (3.81cm) Brass spinwheel. Like our other Block Planes, the blade is adjusted with a captive nut for precise control with minimal backlash. Blade on the Low Angle tool is bedded at 12°, the Standard Angle at 20°. Blades are ground with a 25° flat bevel.
This tool has an appealing feel in the hand and is a pleasure to use. It is versatile, of a convenient size, and cuts with the authority of 1½ pounds behind every stroke. Useful for every sort of woodworking job, this tool will quickly become a favorite. An ideal companion to the Low Angle Jack Plane.
Toothed blades for Block Planes and Bench Planes have small chisel-like teeth .030" (.762mm) wide, and spaced .030" apart. They are used for heavy stock removal in difficult grain. Follow with a fine-set Smoothing Plane.
