The complete plane making kit includes the Plane Making DVD, the compass plane kit, and the bench plane kit. Both the bench and compass plane kits come with wood for the body, shoe and cross pin and a blade & breaker assembly.
The bench plane kit includes all the wood necessary to make the plane as well as the high quality blade and breaker assembly. This plane is the most commonly used plane in any woodworking shop. The plane can be used for joinery, smoothing, thicknessing and even surface preparation. If constructed properly these planes can perform as well as the best planes on the market.
The compass plane kit includes all the wood necessary to make the plane as well as the high quality blade and breaker assembly. This plane is used to create the solera and back work board in guitar making. The plane has many uses in woodworking projects that require concave surfaces such as chair seats, sitting benches, large bowls, or trays.
The blade and breaker assemblies for the plane kits are custom made for us by Ron Hock. These blades and breakers are 3/16″ thick to eliminate deflection and chatter. They are made of high quality high carbon steel and will hold an edge longer.
