Mini Block Plane
The HP-8 is a tool for planing, chamfering and trimming of small wood stock. It also functions as a wood stock thicknesser that other ordinary planes cannot accomplish. The tolerance is also maintained not to exceed 0.025 mm while planing hundreds of small pieces of wood stock.One woodworker said, " When I can’t find my HP-4 (very similar to the HP-8) I get the exact same feeling when I can’t find my wallet—I can’t live without this tool in my shop "
Plane for fixed thickness
The most amazing capability of the small block plane is the ability to thickness plane small stock. By placing any reference material such as acrylic, Masonite, playing cards under the front and rear of the sole, you can drop the skids to your workbench surface and tighten. Set the iron depth to a comfortable depth and plane until the plane quits cutting. All of your stock will be within 0.001” (0.025mm). The plane depth skids are made of aircraft-grade aluminum alloy, which ensures low friction and durability.
