No. 1 Bench Plane

Based on the famous Stanley No. 1, this miniature Bench Plane handles like a block plane and is wonderfully suitable for fine detail work and final touches.

  • 5-1/2" (14cm) long
  • 1-3/16" (3cm) x .110" (2.79mm) thick blade
  • Bronze body
  • .4 lbs.
  • Geometry:

    All Bench Plane blades are bedded at 45° with the bevel down.

    Blade Sharpening:

    Your Lie-Nielsen Bench Plane is ready to cut wood out of the box. The blade is ground sharp at a 25° bevel. A secondary bevel of up to 5 ° helps achieve a razor edge quickly. This also improves edge life in hardwoods.

    Mouth Adjustment:

    To adjust the mouth opening, loosen the two locking screws at the back of the frog; then turn the middle adjuster screw. Observe the opening in front of the blade. When it is correct, set the locking screws again.


    Our Chipbreaker is 1/8" thick. The raised lip under the bevel of the chip-breaker is back beveled 1° to ensure that the leading edge contacts the blade firmly. You should never need to dress this surface, but if you do, use a very fine stone and be sure to maintain the angle. The 25° bevel may be honed occasionally. For general work, set the end of the chipbreaker about 1/16" from the cutting edge of the blade; for the finest smoothing work, set it closer to the edge.

    Blade Adjustment:

    To advance the blade, turn the adjuster nut clockwise. It is always a good idea to finish adjusting the blade by a forward adjustment to take up backlash and to prevent the blade from moving. In order to be able to adjust the blade easily, do not overtighten the lever cap screw.
