Planes go back to Roman times and still fit into today's trends. Among hand planes, the block plane ranks near the top for versatility and convenience. The sole features a moveable shoe which allows to set the mouth opening on the plane to suit the type of cut being taken. The solid bronze cap is an enhanced design from Stanleys old No.140 side rebate block plane, the plane also features brass spin wheel with brass fittings, brass adjuster nut and cap screw. The 6-3/8" long body is 1-3/4" wide and is comfortable in the hand, the adjustable mouth provides control for making whatever shavings you need. This beautiful and affordable block plane is ready to go, right out of the box.
