Loosely based on the Stanley No. 271, these small Router Planes are perfect for shallow mortise and small relief work. The compact design makes it easy to guide along narrow edges and fit into tight spaces.
For inlay work, we offer an optional 3/32" square tipped blade, and 1/4" and 3/32" pointed blades.

Our router planes are loosely based on Stanley models, but many revisions of router planes have been made over the years. All derive from the traditional, wood-bodied routers often referred to as the old woman’s tooth.
The open throat design makes it easy to see what you are doing. Sometimes, as when working a narrow edge, this can be a drawback. A good solution for this is to tape or screw a piece of wood or MDF to the base.
The blade comes ready to use. Slight additional honing will increase performance.
Advance the depth of cut as you work. Loosen the lock screw and advance the blade with the adjuster nut. Take as thick a shaving as you comfortably can.
