Details

This professional general purpose adjustable Block plane has a fine grey iron body and is adjustable for depth of cut and alignment.

A block plane is designed to cut end grain and is typically small enough to be used with one hand with the cutting blade (also known as an iron) bedded at a lower angle with the bevel up compared against other planes. It is frequently used for paring end grain, possible because its blade had been set at a shallow bed angle. This allows the blade to slice through end grain more efficiently; furthermore, for this to work, the plane is frequently held at an angle sometimes as much as 45 to the direction of travel, so that the cutting edge slices the wood fibers as they pass from one end of the cutting edge to the other.

A block plane has many other uses in woodworking, ideal for cleaning up components by removing thin shavings of wood in to make a component fit within fine tolerances. Chamfering (angling square edges) and removing glue lines are some of the other uses woodworkers find for the block plane.

Length: 180mm (7in).
Cutter width: 40mm (1.5/8in).

The one i purchased had a concave sole. I tried to straighten it using wet sandpaper on a glasplate. I scrubbed that cast iron for 4 days in the evenings and didn't get close to a straight sole. It's fairly useful, now, but far from perfect. The sides aren't square as well. The cutter cuts quite well after honing and does fine shaves while you plane the wood ROUND! Overall if you are just after getting a cheap blockplane, go ahead and buy the cheeapest lump you can get and do the afterwork yourself. Don't care about trademarks, here. OR get a real old one second hand, that has been in the hands of skilled woodworkers for generations before. Or do yourself a favour and buy top-class at thrice the price (at least)...
