STANLEY BLOCK PLANE 12-220
ECA Expert Says...
A block plane has many other uses in woodworking, ideal for cleaning up components by removing thin shavings of wood in to make a component fit within fine tolerances. Chamfering (angling square edges) and removing glue lines are some of the other uses woodworkers find for the block plane.
No.220 Block Plane
This professional general purpose adjustable Block plane has a fine grey iron body and is
adjustable for depth of cut and alignment.
A block plane is designed to cut end grain and is typically small enough to be used with one hand with the cutting blade (also known as an iron) bedded at a lower angle with the bevel up compared against other planes. It is frequently used for paring end grain, possible because its blade had been set at a shallow bed angle. This allows the blade to slice through end grain more efficiently; furthermore, for this to work, the plane is frequently held at an angle sometimes as much as 45° to the direction of travel, so that the cutting edge slices the wood fibres as they pass from one end of the cutting edge to the other.
Length: 180mm (7in).
