This Radius Plane is curved both along and across its sole. It is specifically designed for shaping the seat of a Windsor Chair or other tasks that the radius of the sole will suit.
Radius along length of sole is 9".
Radius across the width of the sole is 3”.
It is 5 1/8” long x 2 3/16” wide x 1 1/2” high.
Weighs 1 lb.
Option of an O1 Tool Steel ( O1 TS) blade hardened to RC 62-64 OR a High Speed Steel (HSS) Blade hardened to RC 62.
Blade pitch of 55 degrees for superior results on hard, difficult, or reversing grain.
Blade is reversible to bevel up, effectively creating a blade pitch of 85 degrees, allowing the plane to be used as a scraper. You get two tools in one!
The HSS is ideal if you plan to reverse the plane to bevel up and use it as a scraper on difficult grain because it will hold up better under heat. However, it will take longer to sharpen.
The blade is 1/8 " thick x 1 1/2" wide.
Made from Gidgee, a very dense and stable Australian wood.
