The Verdict

Norris 51 Review By: I.Ball


Manufacturer: Norris

Plane Type: Infill

Model No: 51

The Norris 51-M plane is a 7 1/2 inch long infill smoothing plane.

The Norris 51 is fitted with a Norris of London parallel iron plane blade, cap iron, iron screw cap and a blade adjuster

The plane body on the 51 is referred to as a parallel side body.

The plane is stuffed with wooden infills which consist of a front bun and a closed rear handle.



The rear handle has the blade adjuster neatly built into a suitably sized recess allowing the handle to remain as a closed handle.

The blade adjuster allows the blade to be accurately adjusted laterally and moved upwards and downwards to set the depth of cut.

This plane usually has quite a deep mouth to cater for the thick Norris cutter.

The Norris planes were the ‘Rolls Royce’ of their day and are still considered in high esteem today.

There was a Norris 51 M plane which is almost the same as the Norris 51 with the difference being the 51 M being made from malleable iron.
