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

Reviews
Minotaur Block Plane is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 20.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not possible to repair This block plane is of very poor quality. The body is cast iron (not "carbon steel" as described) but reasonably square and needing only minor work to remove sharp edges. The iron is not sharp enough, but no new plane is; it seems to be reasonably flat and made of a good quality steel so took only a few minutes to flatten, sharpen and hone in the usual way. Regular machine marks on the surface actually helped with sharpening and it seems to hold its edge. The combined frog and depth adjustment is poor because the (cast zinc) moving part doesn't fit in the poorly milled slot in the body. Even if it did, the adjustment screw has been cut at the incorrect lateral and vertical angles. There is simply no way to correct this error: it's a tapped hole cut directly in the cast base. There is no lateral adjustment mechanism aside from tapping with a small hammer - which wouldn't have been worth mentioning if the description hadn't claimed "separate vertical and lateral adjustment". By far the worst feature is the over-large and poorly machined mouth. The mouth had been cut at an angle in the body and finished in an irregular opening which was too large for use even before squaring and straightening.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could be worse Not the best made piece of kit and had to modify for it to work, but it's cheap and did the job I bought it for eventually.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Rough & Ready but it works A handy little plane that is quite cheap. As I bought two of these, one for a present and one for myself, on both of them the adjusting shoe did not sit fully in the slide slot. This seemed odd compared with my other block plane. However when sharpened and set they both planed ok. They did seem to have a very wide frog opening when the blade was set to minimum and the blade edge had nearly disappeared into the frog gap. But- hey, it works.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value for money. It is not the best block planer I have owed, however, for the price I paid, it is more than ideal.
