The ECE #701P Try Plane (Jointer Plane) features a Beech body, Lignum Vitae Sole, and the excellent “Primus” adjustment mechanism. The “Primus” iron adjustment mechanism is all metal and expertly made. Simply turn the adjusting knob clockwise for a thicker shaving and counter-clockwise for thinner. There is no backlash or slop in the system due to a large spring in the heel which keeps tension against the adjuster.
The Body and Sole are joined using ECE’s patented toothed and glued joint. The hard Lignum Vitae sole glides over your work better than any metal plane can. The #701 is lighter than it’s metal equivalent, making it easier to use. It’s long 24 inch length makes it perfect for jointing work and flattening large surfaces. The 60mm (2 3/8″) Chrome Vanadium Steel iron is fitted with a chipbreaker and is bedded at 45 degrees. Iron is machine sharpened, final sharpening is required. Hardness is Rc62. Made in Germany. This is a professional grade tool which carries a full lifetime warranty. Made in Remscheid, Germany by 5th generation toolmaker E.C. Emmerich.
