An excellent plane for the final smoothing of a surface already worked on by other planes. The frog extends all the way to the sole to completely support the blade and reduce blade chatter. The mouth opening can be adjusted without removing the lever cap. It can be closed to a narrow slit for fine shavings or opened for heavier cuts. Combined feed screw and lateral adjustment mechanism allows accurate adjustment of the blade. Set screws in the sides prevent the blade from shifting and provide true lateral adjustment. Sole is 254mm - 10 long and 73mm - 2.7/8 wide. Blade is 60mm - 2.3/8 wide, 3mm - 1/8 thick, made of either A2 or O1 tool steel.
It is lapped on the non-bevel side to a flatness tolerance of 0.0002 or better over the working surface, and with an average roughness surface finish of 5 microinches (0.000005) or better.
Body is made from stress-relieved ductile cast iron. Surface ground to a high degree of finish, the sole is flat, and the sides are square to the sole. Extra-large side wings make for stable shooting.
