This deluxe smoothing plane is the Cadillac of wooden planes. The body is made from fruitwood and the sole is lignum vitae.
This 9" long reform-type plane has a movable shoe in the sole in front of the blade, enabling you to close the mouth for fine cuts on stock that doesn't have a reliable grain, thereby avoiding tear-out. The Primus screw-feed blade-adjustment mechanism has no lost motion, which makes adjustment accurate and easy.
Blade width is about 1-7/8". Bed angle is 50°. Made in Germany, by E.C. Emmerich.
Lee Valley sells this plane for $289. Mine is for sale for $170.
