This is a solid, well-built low-angle block plane that's a joy to use. The body is bronze, but the iron version performs equally as well.…
It's the perfect size for virtually any trimming or profiling in 3/4"-thick stock or thinner. The lever cap sits perfectly in the palm of your hand and lets you get a good anchor point for pushing it through wood. The fine depth adjuster works very well with only negligible backlash, and the locking wheel holds the blade securely. There's no lateral adjuster for the plane iron, so you'll need to learn to do it by touch, but once you get there it'll be second nature.
