Power Adhesives introduces Mouseplane

CHARLOTTE, N.C. --- A unique plane with a flush blade and a comfortable handle modeled after a computer mouse has been introduced by Power Adhesives. The profile fits comfortably in a person’s hand for easy and safe use smoothly finishing glue lines without the gouging normally caused by the angle of hand chisels.

The Mouseplane® fits flush against a wood surface or edge to neatly remove any surplus dried glue or to fix uneven surfaces. The tool can also be used to level edges, clean out corners of cabinets plus a variety of other uses. It’s is a perfect complement to the KNOT TEC™ wood repair system also offered by Power Adhesives.

"The Mouseplane® eliminates the tedious task of heavy-duty sanding to provide a better, smoother, more quality finish,” noted Lee Stegall of Power Adhesives. “The tool complements our line of KNOT-TEC™ hot melt glue guns and is a standard item in our newly introduced KNOT-TEC Wood Repair Kit.”

The tool is useful for builders, carpenters, kitchen fitters, cabinetmakers and more to smoothly finish windows, doors, furniture, wood floors, cabinets and millwork.
Mouseplane® Details

According to the company, the Mouseplane® has the comfort and ease-of-use as a plane, combined with the sharpness and speed of a chisel.

The tool comes with a high quality hardened carbon steel blade that maintains a sharp edge. A storage piece fits on the blade to protect the edge when the tool is not in use for safety. When in use, the clamp can be stored in an easy-to access compartment designed into the tool. If desired, the blade can also be turned when not in use to further protect its sharpened edge for longer life and safety.

A 60-second demonstration on the web site (www.mouseplane.com) shows how easy and safe the tool is to use. It also gives the key features of the Mouseplane.

The Mouseplane® comes packaged in an attractive blister pack and is sold individually. Suggested retail price is $24.99. A replacement blade for the tool is available at a suggested retail price of $13.99 pack.

KNOT-TEC™ Wood Repair Starter Kit

In addition to being available for individual purchase, Mouseplane is standard in Power Adhesives’ KNOT-TEC™ Wood Repair Starter Kit, a recently introduced eco-friendly wood repair system that helps manufacturers repair knots, defects and other damaged wood surfaces.

The kit gives users the tools needed to begin repairing knots and filling in wooden surfaces to help lower operating costs and reduce environmental waste. The result is wood surfaces that are smooth with blemishes hardly noticeable before painting or finishing.
