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.
I received the try plane and used it the next day. Such a pleasure to use! The plane is really beyond my expectation and perform so well on complicated grain wood. A real must have if you have to deal with multiple grain directions. Thanks again!!! Best regards from Sweden.
Best service , great tools, i don’t want to miss them in my workshop.
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.
Try this plane
Second plane only a week after purchasing *** smoother and again this is a work of art. Straight out the box and put to use flattening a dining table top and didn’t disappoint. Went with this version over the *** as it has the ability to push or pull across wide pieces, which this excels at, and maybe easier on a long shooting board. Thanks again and can see myself getting the jack plane quite soon.
First rate beautiful plane
