NOTES: While there may be some confusion with the non-adjuster version, No. 28, the A28 is much more straightforward in its model designation. The fully adjustable, steel faced gunmetal chariot is a beautiful little piece of Norris engineering, either in rosewood or ebony. Unfortunately for the buyer they can be quite expensive as well.

Norris chariot planes are handy little workhorses, much in the same way as a small block plane. They can be used for very fine work and even for end-grain use on smaller pieces.
