Description

This deluxe smoothing plane is the Cadillac of wooden planes. The body is made from fruitwood and the sole is lignum vitae.

This classic smoothing plane is capable of taking the finest shavings even on woods with wild grain direction. Shaving thickness adjustable with a setscrew free of backlash. Blade pre-tensioning, adjustable mouth opening via a sliding plate and lateral blade adjustment via a rocker. The body and asymmetrical handle (for right-handers) are made of air-dried cherry wood.

Planes with mouth adjustment like this, are known as "reform smoothing planes". An adjustable plate in the sole of the plane permits the mouth to be reduced in size, either for particularly fine work.

This 9" long reform-type plane has a movable shoe in the sole in front of the blade, enabling you to close the mouth for fine cuts on stock that doesn't have a reliable grain, thereby avoiding tear-out. The Primus screw-feed blade-adjustment mechanism has no lost motion, which makes adjustment accurate and easy.
