Editor's Review: Block Planes for Builders

review date: May 1, 2008

THE PERFECT PLANE IN THE RAIN. There’s no way I’m going to take one of my better planes outside when the weather is bad. For these situations, Stanley’s smallest plane works surprisingly well. It has a simple body of bent metal and a thumbscrew that secures the blade. If kept sharp, this mini model is fine for trimming shingles, shaping shims, and other basic tasks. There is no replacement blade, so if you sharpen the blade beyond usability, you’ll have to chuck the body as well. But by that time, this plane will have paid for itself many times over.
