The No. 6 Fore Plane is ideal for smoothing and flattening large surfaces, such as panels, table tops and workbench tops. The long sole ensures accuracy when shooting edges as it will not follow the bumps and valleys that a shorter plane would. At just under 3kg and with a sole 457mm long, it is one of our largest bench planes. Supplied with 60mm wide lapped 25° blade in O1 or PM-V11 alloy steel. The lapped blades have a flatness tolerance of ±0.005mm or better over the working surface, and with an average roughness surface finish of 0.000127mm(5 micro inches) or better.
