The compass plane kit everything necessary to construct the plane right along with the video.

The body and shoe are quarter sawn for ultimate stability and the blade and breaker assembly has been custom made for our kits 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.

The plane is easy to make, easier if you follow along with the dvd. This is a project for all skill levels and can be completed in a weekend. Discover how rewarding it can be to work with a plane that you have created yourself. Compass planes are not readily available in the woodworking tool market place. If you need one, chances are you’ll have to make it yourself. If constructed properly the plane will perform as well if not better than anything you have ever used.

The kit includes
a beech wood block for the body
a hardwood shoe
a hickory cross pin
a Hock Tools 8″ radius blade and breaker
plans for the plane.

The compass plane was a little more difficult than the bench plane, in that curving the sole in two directions took more work. It was still fun to make, and turned out well. The video instruction was very well made, and some of the things you demonstrated will be useful to me in other projects.
