Trying Plane

$450.00 AUD
Blade Type

This Trying plane (alternatively known as a jointer or jointing plane) has a higher blade angle of 60 degrees for planing hard, cranky timbers. Alternative use as a cabinet scraper by reversing the blade. Smooths long surfaces, and prepares for jointing.

This Trying plane is 460mm long x 67mm wide x 41mm high. Weighs 1.8 Kg and has the option of a 50mm wide x 6mm thick x 97mm long blade made from Tool Steel (TS) blade hardened to Rc 62-64, or a High Speed Steel (HSS) blade hardened to Rc 62. The HSS is ideal if you plan to reverse the plane to bevel up and use it as a scraper on hard timber.  It has a 60 degrees blade angle for planing or 90 degrees for scraping by reversing the blade to bevel up.

The Handle allows the plane to be pushed or pulled and is removable on a taper. Made from Gidgee.

Smoothing of any long timber surface or for jointing. Works very well when used on a shooting board. Especially good on cranky grain. Alternate use as a cabinet scraper.

A lovely, useful tool

Very prompt delivery. Easy to set up, do a quick final hone of the blade and surprisingly (to me) easy to adjust. Planes beautifully.

Trying Plane

Not unexpected, this elegantly designed plane does what it is supposed to do. Without stress, it purred through some redwood and created wafer thin shavings from what is a very tough stock, a great test of any plane. As with the other 5 HNT planes I have, I can also trust this plane to do what I need consistently. The quality and design deliver.

Perfect hand plane

Really good! Cuts smooth and leaves an amazing finish. Can cut with the grain and against the grain. It is my go to plane now!
