The Stanley 144 planes were designed to be ideal for rounding corners/edges. A typical function being the rounding of shelf corners/edges.

This plane was made in three sizes: 1/4" (6mm), 3/8" (10mm) and 1/2" (13mm).

The blade is secured in place with the use of a small holding screw.

These planes were made from cast iron and finished with the usual Stanley black japanned coating.
