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)
