In Detail

The No.60.1/2 Low Angle Block Plane has its blade seated at an angle of 13.5°, making it particularly useful for end grain work and equally as effective for general usage. All Rider planes are good quality and suitable for home or professional site or bench use. The No.60.1/2 is easy and comfortable to use for numerous trimming and fitting tasks.

Well made, the Rider version has many excellent features. The main casting is ductile iron chosen for its high strength and impact resistance. It has an adjustable mouth for fine or coarser work. The plane features micro depth adjustment and lateral blade control to achieve the thinnest of shavings.

The sole is 155mm(6-1/8") long with a 35mm(1.1/8") wide blade. The sole of the plane is flat and accurate to +/- 0.04mm (0.0016"). At 800g (1-3/4lb), its lightweight and small size make it very manageable.

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.60.1/2 comes with a plane sock and instruction booklet. We are confident that Axminster Rider planes represent a good standard in traditional, quality plane manufacture and great value.

Excellent quality and inexpensive

I'm quite new to woodworking hand tools but a low angle block plane was on the "essentials" list so I sprung for this one.
I am impressed with the quality of the plane for such a small outlay. It's heavy and well balanced, and all the exterior edges are well rounded and smooth.
I'm sure it doesn't compare to a Lie-Nielsen in some respects, but for us hobbyists it seems ideal. The blade came very sharp too.
I have the No.5 jack plane from Rider as well and it's also a great tool. The Rider series is very good by my reckoning.
