Quangsheng No. 101 Small Block Plane

54.5

The baby of the block plane world, the 101 is just plain adorable!

The original Stanley 101 was intended for children, but the tiny plane proved so popular with modelmakers, patternmakers, musical instrument makers and other serious craftsmen that Stanley had to make some quick changes to their advertising.

The Quangsheng 101 is much better made tool with some important differences: cast in bronze, so it can't rust, with a full cap and a lower bedding angle than the original for improved comfort and versatility. The QS also has a straightforward adjuster, absent on the original.

An ideal tool for modelmakers, luthiers, and anyone else who produces small scale fine tolerance work.

  • Body: cast bronze
  • Blade: T10 carbon steel RC62-63
  • Blade width: 22mm
  • Sole dimensions: 87 x 32mm

Please note that we are unable to ship Quangsheng products to North America due to retail exclusivity restrictions.

Quality feel, seems a very good item - smooth adjustment, little backlash.
Very handy little plane. I make instruments, mainly guitars, and have wanted to try ne for a while.
I already use a Lie-Nielsen No. 60 1/2 Low Angle Block Plane and a LN 102, - this feels a similar quality in the hand and costs almost half the price.
And I know the T10 blades are excellent, and take a very keen edge, I use them as upgrades for my older Stanleys and Records.
