Lie-Nielsen Adjustable-Mouth Block Plane
This Iron Block Plane is 6.25" long with a 1 3/8" (3.49cm) x 1/8" (3.17mm) thick blade. The body is surface ground flat and square to a tolerance of less than .001" (.0254mm), and features 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. 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 1.5 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.
