This bevel-up version of a No.1 bench plane has a sole measuring only 45mm wide and 148mm long. Size wise very similar to a block plane and like a block plane, light enough to use single-handed. This is a super bench plane for small-scale work.
It features a Norris-type adjuster for easy, accurate blade setting, and guide screws to center and fix the blade. The adjustable mouth can be closed to a narrow slit for fine shavings with minimum tear-out, or opened for heavier cuts, with the toe position secured with a locking knob. The plane body is fully stress-relieved ductile iron. It is accurately machined and ground so that the sole is flat and the sides are square to the sole. The wooden front knob and rear handle provide a comfortable grip. The blade is bedded at 15°, resulting in an effective cutting angle of 40° with the 25° lapped PM-V11 tool steel blade. Made in Canada
