Butt Mortise Plane

Our Butt Mortise Plane will help you cut neat, precise mortises for hinges, lock fronts, and strike plates in a fraction of the time it takes to set up an electric router and template.

Based on an original 1948 design by W. A. Dohmeyer, this tool does a job no other plane can do. The elongated slot in front of the blade provides a clear view of the work. It is easy to use to make precise mortises with sharply square corners to an accurate, uniform depth. Useful for mortising dutchmen to repair flaws in jambs, furniture, and doors.

  • 9-5/8" long x 1-1/2" wide
  • Blade is .875" wide by .115" thick
  • Iron body, 1.70 lbs.

Butt Mortise Plane Setup and Use
Use
  • Butt Mortise Plane

    This tool is easy to use and will make precise mortises with sharply square corners to an accurate, uniform depth. This plane is also useful for installation of hardware, such as hinges, lockfronts and strike plates, as well as mortising dutchmen to repair flaws in jambs, furniture and doors. This tool does a job no other plane can do.

    A Scrub Blade is also available for rapid planing when large amounts of stock need to be removed, such as backplaning trim to fit an uneven wall surface.

    Blade Sharpening:

    The blade comes ready to use. Slight additional honing will increase performance. A secondary bevel of up to 5 degrees helps achieve a razor edge quickly. This also improves edge life in hardwoods. For more information on advanced sharpening we suggest David Charlesworth’s DVD Hand Tool Techniques Part 1: Plane Sharpening
