Description

This versatile plane excels at trimming rebates and planing end grain. Of course, you can also use it as a normal block plane. Its Norris-style adjuster guarantees precise blade setting. Machined and surface ground, the 162 x 44mm body is ductile cast iron. It has a 12° bed angle and a movable toe fully enclosed by the body casting. A hardwood knob locks the toe to control the mouth opening. A setscrew in the throat acts as a stop allowing exact repositioning of the toe. The blade sits flush with the plane’s side, so corners are clean and accurate. Set-screws on either side prevent the blade from shifting in use. An adjustable spur, ahead of the blade reduces tear out on cross grain. The blade’s 15° skew, makes cutting easier and helps pull the fence into the work.

A brass knob and collet lock the 88mm long, 8mm thick hardwood fence. Tapped holes in the fence casting allow the fitting of a customised fence. It comes with a PM-V11 lapped blade; 3.2mm thick, 38mm wide with a 25° bevel. The lapped blades have a flatness tolerance of ±0.005mm or better over the working surface, and with an average roughness surface finish of 0.000127mm(5 microinches) or better.
