Product Reference: LN-60-1-2
The Lie-Nielsen No 60½ Block Plane is based upon the old Stanley No 60½.
This is a superb little block plane and should be in your tool kit, useful for all woodworking jobs in particular great for trimming end grain. The movable shoe in front of the blade allows you to easily adjust the mouth opening - fine mouth for finishing your work and wafer thin shavings or the wider opening for more aggressive cuts.
The Ductile Iron body is surface ground flat and square to a tolerance of .001" or better. The large, comfortable Bronze cap is tensioned with a 1½" Brass spinwheel. The same as other Lie-Nielsen block planes, the blade is adjusted with a captive nut for precise control with minimal backlash.
The blade is bedded at 12º for fine cuts and end grain work. Weight 1.5 lbs.
Blade is 1-3/8" wide x 1/8" thick.
Blade is bedded at 12º
Also available are the standard replacement blade and the toothed blade.
Toothed blade - small chisel-like teeth .030" (.762mm) wide, and spaced .030" apart. They are used for heavy stock removal in difficult grain followed by using a fine-set smoothing plane. Note toothed blades are great for quick, heavy stock removal. However, something like a knot in pine can break the teeth so be careful around difficult spots. Lie-Nielsen Toolworks recommend that you hone your toothed blade with a secondary bevel at of 30 degrees or higher depending on the type of wood you are planing.
