Note: Out of stock as of 20/02/2020. Please place your order and we will post your plane once made. The current wait time on this plane is approximately 2-3 weeks.
The radius plane is 130mm long x 55 mm wide x 38mm high. The longitudinal radius is 230mm (9") and across the plane the radius is 75mm (3").
Weighs 0.45 Kg and has a 1/8 " thick x 1 1/2" wide blade. You have the option of a 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 55 degrees blade angle and is specifically designed for shaping the seat of a windsor chair, or other tasks that the radius of the sole will suit.
This plane can also be converted to a scraper simply by reversing the blade so would be very useful if you are working in very hard canky woods.
Excellent would highly recommend A++++ with service, attention to detail and the pictures of these tools can not describe just how beautiful they are.
Lovely radius plane, wonderful to hold and cuts nicely. Honed right out of the box.
