The plane blade and breaker assemblies are custom made for us by Ron Hock. Blades are available for bench and compass planes. These blades are the finest quality blades available.
The compass plane blade has an 8″ radius cutting edge. The bench plane blade has a straight cutting edge.
Both blades are 1-1/2″ wide, 3-1/2″ long, and 3/16″ thick. The extra thickness helps eliminate deflection and chatter. These blades are made of high quality high carbon steel to hold an edge longer. The blades and breakers require some preparation before use. This preparation is shown in detail on the Plane Making DVD.
