  Some Block Planes 2 of 2  

English block or chariot planes come in lots of sizes.

Close cousins of block planes are bull noses.
But, they do not have low angle blades.

English block planes do an excellent job of planing end grain.

All of my English block planes are cased to protect them. I made each case to fit individual planes.

And then, of course, are the old Stanley block planes that work well. Don't consider one that does not have an adjustable throat for closing its mouth.

As you can see, I prefer knuckle lever caps as on the three planes on the right.
