Skew Block Plane Fence
We love and recommend the Lie Nielsen skew block planes. They are just perfect for cutting a tiny rabbet on your tailboard when making dovetails so that you can use the rabbet to precisely register the tailboard to the pin-board when transferring the tails (See Rob's method for cutting through dovetails).
What makes the Lie Nielsen skew block plane so useful is it's movable fence attachment. However, the plane does not come with an actual fence to screw to the fence attachment mechanism. The instructions that come with the plane tell you to make your own fence!
We now have done that job for you. Our fence is:
- Specifically designed to fit a Lie Nielsen skew block plane (Left or right handed).
- Made from hard maple.
- Size: 7-1/4 inches x 1 inch x 7/16 inches..
- Pre-drilled with screw holes to fit the Lie Nielsen fence attachment device.
- Comes with two brass Phillips-head screws to mount on the fence (be careful not to over-torque)
The Skew Block Plane Fence fits perfectly and improves the platform for accurate rabbets.
I found the fence to be very useful with my skill block plane. The normal fence provided with the tool was too small to be of significant use. The fence was simple to install and appears to be perfectly sized. I have purchased many tools from your website and I am always pleased with the quality, service, and personal attention.
I had as problem. I wanted the fence for a lie-nielsen plane. The pre drilled holes were not drilled for that plane. I had to fill one of the holes a drill one one that worked. Also the “Rob Cosman” was over burned into the fence.
I love this fence, it has made using the skew plane so much easier. I have improved the accuracy of rabbits. A great addition to my skew plane.
Nice quality to fence. Haven’t had opportunity to attach to plane due to some health issues. Hope to use in next several weeks.
