This pocket-sized block plane is the smallest of our hand planes to feature a captive nut blade adjuster for precisely controlled depth of cut.
Loosely based on the Stanley No.101 block plane, the Lie-Nielsen Violin Maker's Plane features several significant improvements that put it in a class of its own. The body and cap are made from Manganese Bronze for extra weight, durability, and resistance to rust. The blade is 1/8in thick for chatter-free cuts and made from cryogenically treated A-2 steel for prolonged edge life. The addition of a finely controlled blade depth adjuster make this little workhorse perfect for detail-oriented jobs like instrument building or model making.
The body is 3 7/16in long x 1 3/16in wide x 1 5/8in tall. The blade is 7/8in wide x 1/8in thick and bedded at 18°. Weight is 0.50 lbs.
Price: $95 (£60.59); replacement blade for No.101 - $30 (Â£19.14) (All products from USA to UK are subject to shipping & taxes)
