Union Plane No. 4 1/2 Review By: I.Ball

Manufacturer: Union

Plane Type: Smoothing

Model No: 4 1/2


The Union smoothing plane number 4 1/2 was the widest of the Union smoothing plane range.

The body of the plane is constructed from cast iron. The sole and the sides of the body were originally machined and ground to make sure the plane body is flat and true.

The top-side of the plane body is finished with a black finish which is usually synonymous with the Stanley plane range.

The Union 4 1/2 plane has the lateral lever adjuster and frog adjusting mechanism which is almost identical to most planes of this type.

The plane has a shaped hardwood rear handle and Rosewood front knob.

The plane blade is marked 'Union MFG Co, New Britain CT, USA'.

"Just stumbled across your website and an absolute treasure trove of information. I was recently given an old Stanley 110 block plane and wanted to know more about it. Your website told me everything I needed to know.

But there is so much more to read. I forsee me spending a lot of time just reading page after page. I can appreciate how much time this will have taken to put together.

I just wanted to let you know that your hard work is appreciated."
