Description

In Detail

The No. 5 1/2, as the name suggests, is halfway between a No. 5 and a No. 6. Compared to the No. 5, its longer length and wider blade make a better choice for flattening boards and truing panels. The extra mass gives it more heft, a great help when doing the initial surface preparation on a board. At the same time, being slightly lighter and shorter than its larger cousin, it is more manageable, and yet equally as good for fore-plane work. The 5 1/2 makes an excellent choice for use on a shooting board.

This Rider version has many excellent features. The main casting is a ductile iron alloy, chosen for its high strength and its impact and high corrosion resistant properties. It has an adjustable frog, depth and lateral blade control and Indian rosewood handles. The cap iron and other quality fittings on the planes are solid brass, an ideal material for moving parts.

The sole is 375mm (14-3/4") long with a 60mm (2-3/8") wide blade. The sole of the plane is flat and accurate to ± 0.04mm (0.0016").

Rider planes only require the bare minimum of initial preparation. The blade comes honed with a secondary bevel ready to take shavings. Each blade is oil quenched, high carbon spring steel, hardened and tempered to HRC 63.

Every plane undergoes careful inspection in Axminster to ensure consistent quality. The No. 5 1/2 comes with a spare blade, plane sock and instruction booklet. We are confident that Axminster Rider planes represent a good standard of traditional, quality plane manufacture and great value.
