LIE NIELSEN No 40B Butt Mortice Plane
From a private collection (originally purchased in 2005) of little used or unused LIE NIELSEN planes:
A LIE NIELSEN No.40B butt mortice plane.
Not an 'old hand tool' but a quality item based on a 1948 design by W.A.Dohmeyer.
LIE NIELSEN says:
"Our Butt Mortise Plane will help you cut neat, precise mortises for hinges, lock fronts, and strike plates in a fraction of the time it takes to set up an electric router and template.
Based on an original 1948 design by W. A. Dohmeyer, this tool does a job no other plane can do. The elongated slot in front of the blade provides a clear view of the work. It is easy to use to make precise mortises with sharply square corners to an accurate, uniform depth. Useful for mortising dutchmen to repair flaws in jambs, furniture, and doors.

- Blade is .875" wide by .115" thick
- Iron body, 1.70 lbs."
Ductile iron body, bronze lever cap.
Cherry wood handles.
