nagadaiganna 長台鉋
KEY WORD : architecture / tools
A smoothing plane. The body of this smoothing plane is longer than any other smoothing plane, and can measure up to 60cm. Its length increases the contact between the plane sole and the timber being shaved, and the body of the plane acts as a regulator that further smooths the timber and pares the surface accurately. This plane is especially suited for leveling joints between the edges of timbers, and for finishing pillars and door frames where precise, smooth surfaces are required. The nagadiganna, like the *shiageganna 仕上鉋 is used in the finishing stage of planing.
