Quangsheng Luban No.22 Bronze Infill Mitre Plane

185

Designed for accurate trimming, particularly on endgrain, the mitre plane is one of the oldest types of handplane. Often used in conjunction with a shooting board, the high sides of the mitre plane provide excellent registration, mitre planes have an incredibly tight mouth to keep the plane correctly engaged as it reaches the end of the workpiece..

The Luban No.22 differs from 19th century infill mitre planes in that it has a movable frog with the iron fitted bevel down. This serves three purposes, it tidies up the rear of the plane making it easier to grip, eliminates the potentially fragile thin area behind the mouth and the design is better suited to mechanised production. The cutting geometry remains the same, and with a 3mm thick carbon steel cutting iron clamped to a rigid slab of bronze you have all the solidity you could ever wish for.

Mitre plane irons are ground square and set square, with such a fine mouth there is very little scope for lateral adjustment. Instead the accuracy is inherited from the sole or sides of the main casting. There is however, an adjuster for fine tuning the depth of cut.

A competent and well executed interpretation of the classic precision handplane.

Looks and performance!
I just unpacked this beautiful plane, straight from the box to red oak endgrain. It wasn't a fair fight, the plane won easily. What woodworker doesn't love endgrain full shavings? Then I spent 5 minutes just touching up the blade, oh my goodness! This is my new favorite for endgrain and for shooting. I also checked the sole on a piece of granite and it's very flat. Really a beautiful plane.
