LIE NIELSEN No 85 Scraper Plane
From a private collection (originally purchased in 2005) of very little used or unused LIE NIELSEN planes:
A LIE NIELSEN No.85 scraper plane.
Not an 'old hand tool' but a quality item based on the STANLEY No.85.
LIE NIELSEN says:
"This elegant Scraping Plane, comfortably sized between our large and small Scraping Planes, is based on the Stanley No. 85. The blade extends the full width of the base and allows you to work right into a corner, such as a fielded panel. The tilting knob and handle offer clearance for your knuckles when scraping inside a box or on a wide, deep rabbet. Frog is fixed.
