This 6-page article is part technique, part tool review. The first two pages show you three great uses for a block plane; the next two pages show you how to tune your block plane for the best results. Finally, we share the results of our testing of six popular low-angle block planes: the Anant 60 1/2, Lie-Nielsen 60 1/2 and 102, Stanley 12-960, and Veritas 05P22.02 and 0-5P27.02.
Featured in the December 2004 issue.
