Minotaur Block Plane

By Minotaur Product code: 60603 Pack size: Each

Product Details

This block plane from Minotaur is built to a classic design. It's ideal for end-grain work and is easy to manoeuvre, even with one hand. The body and blade are formed from durable and shock-resistant carbon steel to give you many years of reliable service. Its base and sides are precision-ground to ensure they'll slide smoothly across surfaces. 

This is a bevel down plane, which uses a frog to set the cutting angle. Separate vertical and lateral adjustment enables you to set the blade to your exact requirements to achieve a fine or coarse plane. The knobs used for adjusting are chunky and sturdy, with milled edges to help you get a good grip so they can be easily hand-tightened. The plane has a smart two-colour design. Its ergonomic handle ensures it's comfortable to use, however long the job takes.

• Bevel down plane with 40mm carbon steel blade

• Cast iron body with precision ground base and sides

• Perfect for end grain work and great for single-handed work

• Separate vertical and lateral adjustment

Rated 2 out of 5 by from poor blade adjustment Poor blade adjustment, taking quite a while to get it right. Ended up taking back for refund and buying a better one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Handy small plane Purchased shave down a kitchen MDF cornerpost. MDF can quickly blunt blades but it coped well and completed the task.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good in tight spaces Fits in small places, which was ideal for the job I purchased plane for. The plane did the job easily straight out of the box The locking plate does move arounf a little bit but it caused no issue

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed Bought this for my son. I have a Stanley that I bought years ago that just worked from the start. Remember the days when you bought stuff and it worked? I bought this expecting to have to square and sharpen it, and the overall reviews seem good, and TS seem to be promoting the Minotaur brand. Sadly this is not good. The blade adjusting frog, the threaded gliding block, had it's threaded hole badly aligned, so instead of sliding on the glides sat cockeyed on the front edge, raising the blade to a higher angle. Unfixable. Also, despite the blurb saying bevel down blade, it is in fact bevel up, (but so is the Stanley). Took it back unused for a replacement, the second one was even worse, entirely cockeyed. Pity. This is not high tech, it just needs manufacturing care and QC. There's a review some way down who notes exactly the same issues. I wish I had read them more carefully. But refunded without quibble

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed Bought this for my son. I have a Stanley one I bought years ago which he'll inherit. It just works. You remember the days when you bought stuff and it worked? I had hopes for this, or at least to fettle it to make it decent, a fun project. Sadly the metal glide that adjusts the blade had it's threaded hole misaligned, so it sat cockeyed on one corner. Possibly useable, but the blade would be at the wrong angle, and the threaded hole would eventually crack as it was too close to the edge of the metal. Took it back for a replacement, that had the same problem, but even worse. Pity. These are not high tech, and only need a little care in manufacture and some quality control. I thought Minotaur might have been a half decent make, given that TS are promoting them. Not on this showing sadly. Refunded without quibble

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the moneys I’m not the most experienced with planes so that might be part of my issue but I found I had to work with this awhile to adjust it and it has to be realigned with each adjustment, can’t just be raised and lowered accurately. But for the money I think this is probably pretty good. You definitely can get good results with it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Better for small tasks… Probably been ok for a small job but not effective for work on doors. Took back after first pass and got a refund. Felt solid and well made.
