Category: New Block Planes
Plane Type: Block
Model No: 102
This Kunz plane review is a review about the Kunz apron block plane
no. 102, also referred to as the Kunz 102 block plane.
The Kunz Apron Plane No.102 is a small block plane with similarities to the old Stanley 102 Plane and the old Record 0102 Plane.
The Kunz 102 plane is made from stress relieved, fine grey cast iron and fitted with a quality tool steel blade which has been hardened to 62 Rockwell HRC.
The Kunz 102 plane has the Kunz green finish with a contrast red lever cap.
This little plane sits comfortably in the hand. It is a handly little plane in the
toolkit for small planing jobs.
The Kunz 102 is equipped with an in-built short finger pad front knob to offer the user more control when planing.
The blade depth is adjusted by manually setting the blade in the desired position and then locking the blade in place by securing the lever cap.
Usually supplied in a clear plastic box.
