A precision ground cast iron base (2-1/8" W x 6-1/2" L) ensures smooth and accurate planing. Frog and base are cast as one piece to greatly reduce chatter and make planing more effective and enjoyable. The iron is made from 1/8" steel for edge retention superior to most other planes. Also features Norris-style adjustment with lateral lock. Adjustable mouth reduces tear out. Hone the iron before use to achieve exceptionally fine shavings.


Features:

  • Finely machined solid brass adjustment hardware
  • Plane iron is honed to an angle of 25° and is micro-adjustable to 30°
  • Limited lifetime warranty

Performs great!
For starters, it is much heavier than the average block plane. I however greatly appreciate it and enjoy the extra weight. Fresh out the box it is ready for most task, and with 15 minutes of sharpening you have a block plane ready for any task.

I purchased this plane based on...
I purchased this plane based on recommendations found in various woodworking magazines. The magazines said that while this was an excellent plane for the price, it would require some tuning to prepare it for use.I had to true the sole, file the mouth adjustment to allow closer tolerance, and of course, sharpen the iron. When complete, this was an excellent investment! The 1/8" iron and approximately 2lb overall weight makes this plane a rock-solid performer.Don't let the pre-use adjustments dissuade you. It is a necessity for all but the most expensive of planes.Great job, Stanley. Keep 'em coming!

I'm not a pro; just a DYI-er. I'm tempted to give this plane 5 stars but don't feel qualified to do that. The plane did a great job of getting 5 doors to close properly in their jambs in my 170 year old house.

I needed to trim interior doors to make them fit after structural work was done on my house. The house was built in 1846.
