This gidgee 1/4" Dado Plane is 230mm long x 22 mm wide x 75mm high.
Weighs 0.9 Kg and has a 3/16" thick x 1/4" wide Tool steel blade hardened to Rc 62-64, plus a HSS T1 nicker Blade 1/4" wide with 9mm of useable blade which will last a long time. And the nicker is mechanically adjustable for easy set up.
It has a 60 degrees blade angle skewed at 20 degrees for a smooth finish across the grain or with the grain in cranky wood. Used to make a 1/4" dado (grove) across the grain or with the grain. The precision made nicker ensures a very neat and accurate dado as the wood fibres are cleanly severed when planing across the grain. The plane also has a mechanically adjustable depth stop so you can make the dado to a precise depth.
The plane comes with a complete guide for use and sharpening.
excellent, repeat, excellent
I hate routers and the risks they pose. After purchasing one of these Dado planes I can create perfect dado's every time and still hear my music. We are very lucky to have a tool maker like Terry who makes these beautiful tools that will become heirloom tools. Thank you Terry.
