Fore Plane

Fore Plane

This plane is 18 inches long, and is the proper one to follow the jack plane. It is used to remove all inequalities left by the latter tool, and to bring the surface of the wood to a true and perfectly level condition. The proper use of the fore-plane is essential for the production of satisfactory work. The amateur should take every opportunity of learning how to use this tool. To produce a true surface, the plane must be so applied as to remove a shaving the full length of the wood, for unless this is done inequalities are almost certain to obtain. Under no conditions must the plane be moved in any curving direction: absolutely straight strokes are imperative. The Bailey fore plane is a truly beautiful tool, having all the parts and adjustments already described and illustrated; and, when in good order, works in a way that cannot be calculated upon with any ordinary wood plane in existence : its iron sole never goes out of shape, while a wood plane, as our experience has taught us, is always liable to twist and become useless until dressed true. As in the case of the jack plane the fore or trying plane is practically indispensable.
