The wedge slides into the plane until it firmly secures the blade in
A different shaped wedge or a wedge made from a different material indicates the wedge has been replaced. If the wedge is a different colour to the infill then this may mean the wedge has been replaced also.
The Norris number 7 was produced with the standard straight across mouth and also produced with a skewed mouth at extra cost.
The Norris 7 plane blade cutting section spans the full width of the plane with the bevel edge side facing upwards.
The plane can be used left or right handed and can be laid perfectly flat and used on either of its sides to trim rebates, shoulder lines and tenons.
