Detailed Description

Lie-Nielsen No. 51 Shoot Board Plane - Right Hand

Lie-Nielsen's No. 51 is a single-purpose plane designed to trim miters and other end grain cuts on a shooting board. Stanley first built its version of the plane in 1909 along with a metal shooting board. Lie-Nielsen's version of this tool utilizes a standard 2-3/8" Bench Plane Blade and Frog, and is heavier than the original Stanley model. The shoot board plane is 15" long, 3-9/16" wide, with a shoulder height of 2-1/8", and weighs just over 9 pounds. The frog is skewed to the sole at a 20 degree angle. For those lucky enough to possess one of the original Stanley 52 Chute Boards, the Lie-Nielsen No. 51 shoot board plane is designed to fit it correctly. Lie-Nielsen plans to offer a companion Shooting Board in the future. In the meantime, you may download plans to build your own shooting board by clicking here.

No. 51 Shoot Board Plane iron, steel, bronze body, Iron Width: 2 3/8" Overall Length: 15" Weight: 9 lbs. Made in the U.S.A.

Lee Laird from Lie Nielsen Tools Works produces an instructional series on hand planes and has written in detail about the versatility and setup of Lie-Nielsen's No. 51 Shoot Board Plane. Read Lee's setup guide for the No. 51 Shoot Board Plane on the Highland Woodworking Blog.
