We are excited to offer this fantastic new in the box Lie Nielsen #164 Low Angle Smoothing Plane with two replacement blades and original pamphlet. Made in the USA. If you know Lie Nielsen, you know what a deal this is and if you are not familiar with Lie Nielsen tools, you are looking at an exquisitely fine heirloom quality collector's tool. It was purchased from the estate of an avid woodworking tool collector, so not certain as to exact age but it is in excellent unused condition. One tiny 5/16" line of corrosion on base (see photo). Cherry wood handle and pusher knob. From the paperwork: "The Low Angle Smoothing Plane is a shorter version of our Low Angle Jack, two of the three large format low angle block plane that Stanley made.

The 164 has an adjustable mouth and a unique overhead Bailey adjuster for depth of cut. It is useful in a wide variety of jobs from rough work to smoothing and can be easily converted from one type of work to another." It measures 8-1/2" long and 2-1/2" wide. Also included in this auction is not one but TWO, new, unused replacement blades, one of them toothed. Lie Nielsen guarantees
