Luban No 3 Chisel Plane

A modern version of the original Stanley No. 97 Cabinet makers edge plane, which was designed for cleanup or trim inside work, where the space is limited and the use of any other plane is difficult.

This is a special purpose plane, useful for cleaning into the corners of stopped rebates, trimming semi-dry glue squeeze out, cutting drips and runs from finishes between coats and accurate levelling with reference to an adjacent surface. 

The Luban brand is manufactured by the Qiangsheng Tool Co., sometimes spelt Quangsheng who are well known for producing high quality tools.

Minimal final honing and tuning is required prior to use.
