LIE NIELSEN No 60 1/2 Adjustable Mouth Block Plane *SOLD*
From a private collection (originally purchased in 2005) of little used or unused LIE NIELSEN planes:
A LIE NIELSEN No.60 1/2 adjustable mouth block plane.
Not an 'old hand tool' but a quality item based on the STANLEY No.60 1/2.
LIE NIELSEN says:
"Based on the Stanley No. 60½, this versatile plane is useful for every sort of woodworking job and a pleasure to use.
The movable shoe in front of the blade allows you to easily and precisely adjust the mouth opening: fine mouth for finishing work and thin shavings, or ample opening for rank cuts.
Ductile Iron body is surface ground flat and square to a tolerance of .001" or better. Large, comfortable Bronze cap is tensioned with a 1-1/2" Brass spinwheel. Like our other block planes, the blade is adjusted with a captive nut for precise control with minimal backlash.
The blade is bedded at 12º for fine cuts and end grain work. Weight 1.5 lbs.
