It is virtually in mint condition and comes with its original box. Also, due the pandemic, Lie-Nielsen have had a hard time keeping up with demand and this plane is one of their fine tools that has been consistently out of stock in the last year. So this is your chance to own or gift!This heirloom quality tool now! The 042 Medium Shoulder plane is a great tool for trimming and improving cut joints, particularly shoulders, rabbets, tenons and grooves. The bronze lever cap is higher for better grip and closer to the iron for better support. The mouth geometry allows for better chip clearance, while the adjustable mouth and locking screws are large and convenient. The mouth adjustment screw is captured in the front shoe and threaded into the body so it adjusts the mouth both when turned in and turned out. The captive nut iron adjustment is very positive. The body is caset from ductile iron and is precisely ground flat and square - an essential feature of a shoulder plane. The iron is A2 tool steel, hardened to Rockwell 60-62, cryogenically treated and double tempered to hold a very fine edge for a long time. The iron is bedded at 18°, beveled at 25°, and 0.005 wider than the body to ensure crisp, 90° cuts.
The 042 Medium shoulder plane is an excellent size for furniture joinery. The body is 7-¾ long by ¾ wide. The iron is ¾ wide (plus 0.005) and 0.140 thick. The planes weight is 2.35lb.
