Editor's Review: Block Planes for Builders

review date: May 1, 2008

CLOSE TO DRIVING A CADILLAC. If it were smaller, this plane would rank among my favorites. Out of the box, the blade needed little to no work before use. The fit and finish and the adjustment mechanisms are excellent. This plane combines blade feed and lateral adjustment, which allowed me to dial in a blade setting quickly and precisely. Although it has a solid feel, the plane’s weight makes it harder to use with one hand. It’s also too hefty to carry in my tool apron. For trimming miters and butt joints, the 1 5⁄8-in. blade width is more than I need.
