Primus Reform Smooth Plane for sale: $135US + UPS Shipping
Blade needs grinding/sharpening; otherwise excellent condition
The Primus line of wooden planes by E.C. Emmerich is steeped in the Continental European woodworking tradition and enhanced with some of the advances you need in a modern workshop. These wooden planes work wood in the time honored way that no machine can approach. The Primus Reform Smooth Plane is arguably the Mercedes of German wooden planes. It incorporates the following features:
• Adjustable throat size by sliding a section of the front sole which is firmly secured by a screw head on top of the plane body.
It doesn’t get much better than this. Features a handsome dark cherry body with a premium lignum vitae sole. The 1 7/8” (48mm) wide iron is hardened to Rc 61 and is bedded at 50 degrees in a 8 7/8” long plane body.
