LIE NIELSEN No 140 Skew Block Plane *SOLD*
From a private collection (originally purchased in 2005) of little used or unused LIE NIELSEN planes:
A right-hand LIE NIELSEN No.140 skew block plane.
Not an 'old hand tool' but a quality item based on the STANLEY No.140.
LIE NIELSEN says:
"Based on the long unavailable Stanley 140, this multi-talented tool is designed to deal with difficult woods using a combination of a low angle approach, shear cutting action from the skewed and tilted blade, and extra weight of the bronze body.
A retractable nicker scores cross-grain fibers, and the removable side plate and adjustable fence allow quick conversion to rabbeting and cross-grain work, such as fielding raised panels.
The 1-1/2" wide x 1/8" thick blade has an 18° skew and is bedded at 12° with a captive nut for positive and accurate adjusting.
- Body is 6-7/8" long x 1-7/8" wide.
- Bronze 2.15 lbs."
Bronze body and lever cap.
Cherry wood front knob.
Complete with its original box, packaging and user guide leaflet.
