LN #4 Cap Iron Profile ()

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.


Picture is of my LN #4. I know I polished it. I don't think I ground it but could have. Ask Warren. In any case the arc is smooth and no deep scratches like on the LN 4 1/2 I have not messed with. The angle measuring thing is set at 50 degrees the angle Kato and Kawai used for nearly all their work.

If I have need to level a drawer divider and it has some grain reversal I have no fear using this plane to level it. I make no further claim.
