Title: Hand plane with reverse angle frog

Abstract: The improved hand plane of the present invention is used for planing wood, and includes interchangeable frog and blade assemblies. The plane includes a base with a sole and a throat, and a rear handle on the base adjacent the rear end. The frog is mounted in the base and extends upwardly and forwardly from the throat in a reverse angle so as to avoid interference with the handle. A blade is mounted to the frog with attachment screws accessible through the mouth of the throat in the sole of the plane. A pair of screws allows for depth and lateral positioning of the blade.
