The generous width and weight of this smoother with the versatile inner workings of a low-angle bevel-up plane in the coffin-shaped body, with a 254mm x 79mm sole (2.23Kg), is made of fully stress-relieved ductile cast iron and has an exceptionally low centre of gravity for smooth, stable cutting action. Accurately machined, the sole is flat and square to the sides.

The 12° bed angle, coupled with the 38° blade bevel, yields an effective cutting angle of 50°, often referred to as a York pitch. This is an ideal starting angle for minimising tearout on difficult wood and awkward grain patterns. For the most difficult grains, even higher cutting angles can be achieved, either by honing the blade with a higher micro-bevel or using one of the optional blades below.

The adjustable mouth can be closed to a narrow slit for fine shavings with minimum tearout or opened for heavier cuts. A stop screw in the throat adjusts to whatever mouth opening you find ideal for chip breaking and chip clearance. This lets you open the mouth fully for blade removal (for honing) and replacement, yet quickly restores your exact mouth setting. The large hardwood front knob and rear handle provide both comfort and excellent control. The adjustment mechanism, with its combined feed and lateral adjustment knob, makes blade setting easy and accurate. Set screws prevent the blade from shifting, but allow full lateral adjustment.

Includes a lapped 38° blade, 57mm wide by 4.7mm thick, A2 tool steel. Lapped 25° and 50° blades are available, as well as a toothed A2 blade for working difficult grains.
